YouTubeâs Bandwidth Bill Is Zero. Welcome to the New Net

,----[ Quote ]
| YouTube may pay less to be online than you do, a new 
| report on internet connectivity suggests, calling 
| into question a recent analysis arguing Googleâs 
| popular video service is bleeding money and 
| demonstrating how the internet has continued to 
| morph to fit userâs behavior.
| In fact, with YouTubeâs help, Google is now 
| responsible for at least 6 percent of the internetâs 
| traffic, and likely more â and may not be paying an 
| ISP at all to serve up all that content and attached 
| ads.


Public Knowledge Tells FCC Movie Industry Plan for Set-Top Boxes Will Hurt Consumers

,----[ Quote ]
| A proposal by the motion picture industry to use 
| âselectable output controlâ to hobble the functions 
| of set top boxes wonât stop movie theft but will 
| harm consumers, Public Knowledge told the Federal 
| Communications Commission
| In an Oct. 14 letter to William Lake, the chief of 
| the Commissionâs Media Bureau, Public Knowledge 
| responded to arguments filed by the Motion Picture 
| Association of America (MPAA) that such control was 
| needed to bring movies to the public faster than 
| they otherwise might.


Hidden High Court Injuctions

| The Twitter vs Trafigura case continues though it 
| really is the Guardian newspaper and Wikileaks who 
| have been driving this amazing story that 
| illustrates the total lack of freedom of expression 
| granted to the citizens of Britain.
| For those who havenât been following the case: The 
| Guardian was attempting to report on Trafigura, a 
| multi-national oil and commodity trader, but 
| received legal threats from Carter-Ruck. This led to 
| an injunction stopping them from publishing their 
| findings. Yet not only were they prevented from 
| publishing their article but the injunction also 
| prevented them from reporting about the injunction!



Viacom thinks it has found a smoking gun

| Viacom is suing Youtube for a billion dollars and claims to
| have uncovered emails that allegedly proved employees of the
| video website were among those who uploaded unauthorised
| content.
