Viacom Demands YouTube Take Down Videos

Feb 2nd, 2007 | By | Category: General

YouTubeViacom has demanded that YouTube pull down all of its video clips after they failed to reach an agreement, the company said.

Or as some have put it – Viacom is terrorizing YouTube with bullshit DMCA notices.

About 100,000 video clips from Viacom-owned properties, including MTV Networks and BET, have been asked to be removed. Viacom said its pirated programs on YouTube generate about 1.2 billion video streams, based on a study from an outside consultant.

The request is another example of the legal-battles YouTube will to face, post Google acquisition.
