Viacom sues Google/YouTube over copyrighted content

This is bullshit, plain and simple.  YouTube tries as hard as they can to get rid of copyrighted material as fast as time permits.  This is stifling technological advances.  This is just bullshit, plain and simple.  Uncalled for and retarded if you ask me.

“The legal challenge from Viacom, home to the MTV and Comedy Central channels, also suggested a wider battle between traditional and Internet media companies that now compete for audiences and advertising dollars.”

I can see this twisted view point, that advertising online compared to TV is starting to take shape and that perhaps they are taking a cut of the pie.  The thing is, suing companies like this is only making things go backwards instead of forward.  They aren’t doing each other any good in my honest opinion.  They should join them, not try to beat that.  I don’t even have an example off the top of my head but I’m sure you get the picture.  How blatantly annoying are these stupid companies?
