Submitted by: primetimekin 8 years ago

This guy wants every YouTube user to stick it to Viacom. Get ready for an all-out war. Lots of NSFW language.

"its funny if they actually got a law suit around this. phone tapping and govermental spying is fine, but once they give out your ip adress its war"

I would rather my information be known by the Government than a privately owned company.

We can`t get people to just stop watching. I will never give up ESPN which is owned by Disney which is basically owned by Viacom, BUT I can give it up for a short amount of time. If we gather enough people to give it up for a small amount of time we can`t hit their profits and make them say "Oh.... We`ll, we can set something up where we dont see your accounts AND maybe create our own youtube channel where we put shows and advertisement together"

And 1 more thing AKappy, its not so much about privacy, but the legal status they have with this power. If they dont have the legal right to see what we see and upload (like Viacom content) we can`t have a suit against us for copyright blah blah blah. If they do have the right then they can have that suit.

"The right to privacy is not in the Constitution. Anyone who thinks they have or are entitled to privacy these days doesn`t understand how the world works."
Its not in the Constitution but the Supreme Court has granted it in someways.

"Viacom is bigger than all of you, and so is Corporate America for that matter. SUCK IT UP!"
Yes but Corporate America is bigger than Viacom. Many many companies want to see them fail, we can use their help.

This guy is just a guy who brings popularity to the subject, in my master plans to not only re-modify the Copyright laws, but to also create a channel for all the old Viacom shows people want to see.

"
Ryan, that`s just taking it out on an innocent receptionist. You`re being a royal jerk. If you wanna make a difference, you need to hit the source. Don`t waste time being an annoyance."

No, you don`t understand, that receptionist is the kingpin. It`s the perfect crime.

I`m just saying, privacy is an illusion these days. I paid attention enough in LAW370 (laws in technology) to have learned that.

Sorry Akappy but neither do you then.I`m not American and I AM protected by privacy laws, yet Viacom can request my browsing history too. UK laws dont apply to you so American laws dont apply to me...but viacom thinks diffrently.

Nevermind!! I GET IT NOW! All those those retards who made fake accounts so that they could view the 18+ vids are getting all scared.

lmao

Although I`m pretty sure Viacom is only seeing who views the copyrighted stuff. The stuff that should be taken down in the first place. That`s their whole case, making Youtube enforce Copyright Infringement laws better.

I don`t get it? I don`t see the big deal. They`re only seeing who views what and when. It`s not actually invading privacy. We gave that much up when we made a youtube account. IP addresses can`t show were you live/reside either. Idunno, maybe I`m just too apathetic.

Viacom is trying to, oh idunno, enforce the law?!

Idiot Idiot Idiot!

When campaigning against something and making a video out of it because you have a message to say, follow the following etiquette:

"Don`t swear to make your argument valid."
A swear word may be used, appropriately, but "F*ck VIACOM" and their "bull$hit lawsuit" should not constitute your first argument.

Explain what has happened, in plain english, explain what the problem is, then give argument as to what you intend to do about it and what you want others to do about it.


I watched 15 seconds, realized the guy knew nothing of what he was talking about because his first sentence included the word "F*ck" twice and immediately realized this guy was a total f*cking idiot.

I mean I know Youtube is interesting and all, but are you guys really defending one of the worlds largest companies when it is being sued by one of the other largest companies?

Are you really that much of a slave, no, not even a slave, a trained dog to Google and youtube that when it, a company that has only considered you a number is attacked by something else you act as if your best friend is being mugged?

Yes, Youtube is funny and entertaining, and so are several things that Viacom owns, but if you lose them, you will survive; you probably will become better for it too. (some people may even learn how write in English again... although probably not)

Seriously, you that defend Google when Viacom attacks are pathetic.

However, if you don`t like Viacom, study law, and bring a case against it yourself.

Other than the fact that he sounds like a whippet on coke, I agree with him - however, he needs to grow up and deal with the situation maturely. He has to channel his passion into an adult state of mind... or else no one`s going to respect him.

I mentioned this before in the judge case decision posting; you guys are fools and this kind of thing WILL NOT WORK. If anyone goes through with this whole thing it`s just inviting major blowback to happen- Viacom is bigger than all of you, and so is Corporate America for that matter. SUCK IT UP!

I hate Viacom. They think they`re so high and mighty, making us take down videos and getting around privacy laws. They need to stop their bitching and eff off. Instead of trying to force us to stop uploading these videos and wasting money and time with lawsuits, they should be working with their team to figure out a way to adapt and still profit, even with sites like YouTube.

Viacom vs Google. Oh sh*t.
...

But what Google can do that Viacom can`t is gather a volunteer army and attack other corporations. That`d be pretty badass.

>> I`d say be worried!
BBC report

Could I be sued for watching a music vid on youtube? I`m supposedly protected by the UK "Data Protection Law" which is supposed to stop poo like this happening, but Viacom + Google have royally screwed us over. Everyone visiting this site has watched copyrighted material at one point or another....
We have no idea how far this will go...so yes..be worried!

What is the big deal? So Viacom sees who watched what videos. They aren`t going to come over to your house and laugh at you for it. Nothing overly inappropriate is on YouTube anyway. If you are concerned about privacy, why the hell do you have a Youtube account anyway? I mean, clearly, they can see what you have been watching, how is Viacom seeing what you`ve been watching any more privacy-invading?
------------------------------------------------

Viacom are fcking with privacy laws. Its not Youtube, but google. Whats next? Could any company or goverment demand to see your viewing habbits on the net because you may or may not have vistited a site they deem illigal? >>>

naahh the scary part isn`t just that viacom is getting a huge list of who exactly watched what, and when; it`s that viacom might take some sort of copywrite-infringement case against user who post, or even possibly watch, video that viacum says they own... i mean psht could be nothin` and for all i know that probably won`t even happen, but there`s that fear yanno...

Saying "F.uck you" to Viacom or subscribing to his videos will do nothing. There is only one way to get Viacom to stop such antics... Start a petition to get people to stop watching/buying viacom materials, send it to them, and actually have people follow through with it. Hurting their bottom line is the only way to get them to change.

Viacom does want to get rid of the freeware and shareware and make the internet corporate. So does every comp company and media outlet, they are just waiting to see Viacoms outcome and bean count how the results are and the end costs. This is not going to fare well for the user, and the internet will be corporate in 10 years and dead to the middle class user.
