    My job involves internet things and some of the legal aspects that go with dealing with internet media. So, anything media related, I usually pay close attention.

    Here's a hot blog from YouTube about Viacom uploading their own videos to YouTube through other 3rd party services and then trying to sue YouTube over it... it's a good read for anyone looking for a juicy blog today.

    I heard about this in passing, agreed, I think Viacom shot themselves in the foot. Why doesn't this surprise me? More corporate greed or just getting [bad] press. I hope the YouTube lawyers dunk Viacom good on this one.

    Wonder what idiot thought this was a good idea?

    Karen, you do internet media in Japan?

    We don't produce media, we handle legal matters associated with film, TV and internet media. I guess we handle maybe 65% of the media legalities in Japan. I can't really say more than that, it would already be fairly easy to identify who I work for. :p
