Google’s headaches about YouTube keep mounting including the fact that they can’t figure out how to sell ads there.  Now they’re being forced by Viacom to hand over user information (that’s including you and me) about who’s accessing their videos on YouTube.  Needless to say, many other media outlets jumped in to say how this won’t win Viacom any fans including Cnet who point out how it makes Google look good plus this Seattle Post-Intelligence article pointing out how futile the suit is.  But as this Information Week article points out, Google ain’t exactly angels when it comes to privacy.
