In which Hank argues with Hank about the Viacom v YouTube lawsuit. Important points:
1. Yes, YouTube knew that copyrighted clips were being uploaded.
2. Viacom once tried to buy YouTube
3. Viacom's Spike.com steals videos from independent video creators constantly.
4. Viacom wants YouTube to manually approve every video on the site, which would destroy YouTube
In my opinion, YouTube should pay some reparations to Viacom based on the amount of views on content owned by Viacom. YouTube should continue to develop it's Content ID system, which has proved to be better at identifying copyrighted material than manual identification.
Viacom should drop the suit, and settle out of court for something like $3 CPM of views on copyrighted clips.
