In a response to Viacom’s lawsuit against YouTube, Google said the suit was unfounded and it was ready to go to court, asking for a jury trial. â€œWe are not going to let this lawsuit distract us,â€ said Michael Kwun, managing counsel at Google. “We feel pretty confident about the case.” In a court filing, Google said “Viacomâ€™s complaint threatens the way hundreds of millions of people legitimately exchange information, news, entertainment, and political and artistic expression.” Viacom responded by saying Google does not qualify for safe harbor protection under the DMCA. The lines are drawn, and this will be a landmark case, folks.
