    Viacom Bullies YouTube Into Removing 100K Videos

    This weekend Viacom decided to throw some weight around, sending 100,000 DMCA notices to YouTube, telling them to take down any clip that came up when any of their shows were searched for. That not only means that clips from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report will be harder to come by now, but that clips even coincidentally titled similarly to any Viacom property have been taken down.

    Big difference, viacom is asking for copyrighted material removed, they arent sueing everyone viewing or DLing it.
