Damn Viacom!

A court has ordered youtube to hand over the private member information of it’s viewers and posters to Viacom. This means not only your membership info; name, email, etc but also IP addresses of everyone! Now this can be a sticky situation because what this means is by going over member logs they can find out who has been posting copyrighted material then get user their IP address to find out their ISP (internet service provider) to subpoena them from that individuals personal info leading the authorities right to that person’s front door. That is potentially what could happen. This gives new meaning to Big Brother is watching!
