YouTube says Viacom posted their own copyrighted videos, then demanded take down

YouTube says Viacom posted their own copyrighted videos, then demanded take down

This fight between YouTube and Viacom is just crazy.

Youtube says Viacom had at least 18 of their own employees posting videos of their own Viacom content -- MTV and the like, I presume -- and even go so far as use Kinko's computers so they couldn't be traced back to Viacom, and "roughing them up" so they looked like regular user's videos.

Then Viacom demanded YouTube take them down.

And when YouTube took some of them down, YouTube says Viacom "sheepishly" asked for them to be put back up, because they liked the promo.

Weird, weird, weird...
