Viacom Wants YouTube Employee Info

By Sergio Published on .

Viacom has a new demand in its ongoing copyright infringement lawsuit against Google’s YouTube: It is asking for detailed information on video viewing and uploading done by YouTube employees themselves, CNET reports. Data on employee behavior could help Viacom prove just how much YouTube knew about video piracy on its site. Google has so far refused to hand over the records. Meanwhile, it will cost $12 million for Google to comply with the court order to supply Viacom with YouTube’s records of every video watched or uploaded, Silicon Alley Insider says, citing a Metalincs calculation.
