I think such a decision is bad for internet neutrality and for the online communities such as YouTube. Viacom should not be able to know who watches what because it greatly infringes on personal privacy. Several major TV shows such as Southpark, Heros, and Lost are availbe from the respective tv channels websites. instead of fighting sites that might host, or usually only point to files that may be copyrighted is a waste of resources and in the end will do more damage Viacom and other such companies should work to promote their sites that "legally" host their shows with advertisements. The internet should not be threatened by private organizations that make profit, this is purely dangerous to the survival of a free web and personal rights.
