Not so fast, Viacom

Last week, as recently posted here and elsewhere, Viacom won the right to look at the user logs for Google's YouTube service. Viacom has insisted all along that YouTube served as a virtual library for content illegally lifted from numerous big name rights owners, Viacom's operations included (Paramount, CBS, MTV Networks, Showtime Networks).

InformationWeek has more up online.

Let's just say this for now: One battle may be done, but the war's not over yet.
