A couple of days back the news surfaced that Viacom has sued Google for compensations accounting to 1$ billion for violating the copyright policy. In their defense they claim that they have always followed the rules and regulations pertaining to copyrights.

In a press release Google says:
“Here there is a law which is specifically designed to give Web hosts such as us, or… bloggers or people that provide photo-album hosting online … the ’safe harbor’ we need in order to be able to do hosting online,” said Alexander Macgillivray, Google’s associate general counsel for products and intellectual property.
“We will never launch a product or acquire a company unless we are completely satisfied with its legal basis for operating,” Macgillivray told Reuters in an interview.
