Google responds to Viacom

Google has finally made an official response to Viacom's lawsuit over the contents of YouTube, notes the Associated Press. Viacom is the parent company of TV networks such as MTV and Comedy Central; clips from many Viacom shows have appeared illegally on YouTube. Google is now saying in court, however, that it is in fact zealous about guarding copyright, exceeding requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Web hosts are immune from lawsuits so long as they agree to removal requests, but Google says it immediately complies with any complaints about unauthorized material.
