Calling George Orwell, It's 2008, you missed us by 24 years!

A decision by a judge in a case of Vicom vs. Google reported in a Wired blog post is lighting up the internet. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, Tech Crunch, CNet, Techmeme, Search Engine Land and Wired are all reporting that Google is being forced to turn over every record of every single video watched by You Tube users!

As Search Engine Land’s blog post title read, “WTF! US Court Declares You Have No Privacy On YouTube”

Wired reports:

Google will have to turn over every record of every video watched by YouTube users, including users' names and IP addresses, to Viacom, which is suing Google for allowing clips of its copyright videos to appear on YouTube, a judge ruled Wednesday.

Yeah! WTF, indeed!
