Ever check out YouTube? Have a user name and password for it? Then Viacom's going to find out all about what you like to watch.
Google must now turn over all its data about YouTube visitors on four 1-terabyte hard drives, a staggering amount of data, as well as copies of all clips it has ever taken down. (One terabyte is 1,000 gigabytes.)
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco organization that defends the rights of Internet users, quickly protested the ruling, saying it "threatens to expose deeply private information about what videos are watched by YouTube users."
Isn't there an increase in spending allocated for Domestic Surveillance? I saw something on CNN about it but now I can't find it

PS: I rarely check FOX's site but I was looking for that Domestic Surveillance blurb. Anyway, for anyone interested in what's going on in the cyberworld, Fox has quite an extensive list of reading: Cybersecurity - FOXNews.com
It is the highest of hypocrisy when the US/UK strip away privacy of their own people and then want to use the fake 'spread freedom' rhetoric to topple other governments
Word. I'm sure none of these cyber-invasions started out with the express purpose of spying on people but,as with everything apparently, there's a built-in potential for abuse. Safe to say we all want the internet to be free of predators and hackers, but the same scietech put in place to do good has snowballed into a way of tracking everybody.
Our founding fathers must be turning over in their graves.
If something isn't done about the huge amount of copyright infringement going on online we'll all suffer a serious cultural loss. Music, movies, video games... everything that can be stolen online is being stolen at a gargantuan pace.
Sure privacy is being nibbled at, but you have to balance that against preventing other losses. Privacy isn't the only thing of value.
I get the copyright issues but I have to strongly disagree with that statement. Then again,I guess it depends on what you truly value if push comes to shove. Basic, constitutional freedoms aren't negotiable imo. Neither is breaking the law. Deal with the copyright infringers and leave the rest of us alone. There's absolutely no need for such a sweep, not in this country.
We are known as a technocracy for good reason. If we want to target someone we know how to do it, we don't need data on an entire population to get our man.
Sacrifice your right to privacy for the sake of copyright laws? Be careful what you wish for my friend.
