It appears a new battle is brewing on the internet. Several salvos have been fired. And there will be lots of collateral damage.
I was just reading an article written by Michael Arrington at TechCrunch that discusses the implications of a recent court ruling. See the article, “Judge Protects YouTube’s Source Code, Throws Users To The Wolves” for more information on what is happening. I have no idea what the facts are in the case, but would you want a company to hand over your userid and other information to another company because of a court ruling?
As with all things, it seems a few bad apples ruin things for the rest of us. This is going to be interesting to watch. Love the comments.
