Google Ordered To Release Data On YouTube Users

July 3, 2008 – 10:20 AM

The judge hearing Viacom’s $1 billion copyright infringement claim against Google has ordered its YouTube unit to provide user histories.

Google has to turn over millions of videos it has removed from the video-sharing site, user login IDs, records showing when users watched videos, their IP addresses, and numbers that identify the videos. The order applies not only to videos watched on YouTube but also to videos embedded on third-party Web sites.
