This is so messed up

YouTube user data must be turned over to Viacom, judge rules - Boing Boing

okay, simple, and short

for every video, ever posted, since the sites launch in 2005, Gogole must turn over, the login name, and IP address, of every person, who viewed the video.

So every video, ever on youtube, for any amount of time, each viewers login and IP, this is a huge huge mountain of ata, that Viacom is goin to get, due to a fedeeral judges rulign against google/youtube.

think about all the views a viral video gets in a day, between on site watching, and beign embeded in peoples blogs....
