The Viacom Sues The Google for The $1 Billion

Miss that interview with Bill O'Reilly on "The Daily Show"? Just go to The YouTube and watch The Video.

That all might end soon, now that The Viacom is suing The YouTube, now owned by The Google, for posting The Copyrighted Content without giving The Viacom The Big Bucks.

And we are talking about a lot of content, as The Viacom runs The Comedy Central, the now nearly music video-free MTV (can anyone over the age of 12 watch their horrible reality shows?) and The VH1 -- which actually shows a video every now and again.

I happen to think The Viacom is right, although I personally enjoy watching The Purloined Viacom Video on The YouTube.
