YouTube To Cough Up Data On You

Google must divulge YouTube log: bbc.uk

"Google must divulge the viewing habits of every user who has ever watched any video on YouTube, a US court has ruled."

"The ruling comes as part of Google's legal battle with Viacom over allegations of copyright infringement."

"The viewing log, which will be handed to Viacom, contains the log-in ID of users, the computer IP address (online identifier) and video clip details."

"Mr Davies said: "Governments and organisations are realising that companies like Google have a warehouse full of data. And while that data is stored it is under threat of being used and putting privacy in danger.""

"The EFF said: "The Court's erroneous ruling is a set-back to privacy rights, and will allow Viacom to see what you are watching on YouTube."

re: warehouses full of data

This comes right on the heels of the recent us-and-eu data sharing agreement, and Bush's recent "Presidential Directive" (NSPD 59) which makes allowance to create detailed dossiers on Western Region homeland (formerly known as the USA) subjects. see: nspd 59..people 0
