Viacom and Google are in court with one another. Viacom has a $1 Billion dollar case against Google.
Thing is that Google flat out doesn't care, or feel that they are at fault or in the wrong.
Viacoms a major corporation and has lots of Lawyer Money and appears to be geared to fight this out in court and make some noise at the same time.
"This is an area of law where there are a bunch of really clear precedents, so Amazon and eBay have both been found to qualify for the safe harbor and there are a whole bunch more. We will continue to innovate and continue to host material for people, without being distracted by this suit."Thanks CrunchGear.
