Google forced to pass the User Identities to the Viacom

A US judge has ordered Google to expose to Viacom the video-viewing habits of everyone who has ever used YouTube in a decision condemned by the Internet giant and privacy advocates.

Viacom charges Google, which bought YouTube in 2006, acts as a willing accomplice to Internet users who put clips of Viacom’s copyrighted television programs on the popular video-sharing website.

“We are disappointed the court granted Viacom’s overreaching demand for viewing history,” Google senior said.
