Google challenges Viacom lawsuit

Last march of 2007, after some very unproductive negotiations between Google and Viacom, a billion dollar suit was filed against Google because of copyright infringement.

Two months later Google is now challenging the lawsuit with their defense:

"Google shielded itself with the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, legislation passed in 1998 that says Internet firms are not responsible for what Internet users put on websites."

Google asked the judge to immediately deny Viacom's claims and order the New York-based entertainment company to pay Google's legal fees and whatever other damages the court sees fit.

Let's wait and see what will be Viacom's response to this.
