I Don’t Believe in Imaginary Property writes “Lawsuits are never cheap, even if you’re on the winning side. But not many cost as much as Viacom’s lawsuit against Google. The search giant won before trial, and even so Google spent $100 million defending themselves. Incidentally, Viacom is appealing the ruling, so it’s not even over yet. Perhaps it’s no wonder our rights are vanishing online when it takes $100M to protect just one of them.”
