Now Big Brother Really Is Watching "YOU" ...

Who here hasn't, at one time or another, watched something on "YouTube"?

Can you believe this? Can you? Can you comprehend it? Can you?

Google must divulge YouTube log.

Google must divulge the viewing habits of every user who has ever
watched any video on YouTube, a US court has ruled.

The ruling comes as part of Google's legal battle with Viacom over allegations of copyright infringement.

Digital rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) called the ruling a "set-back to privacy rights".

The viewing log, which will be handed to Viacom, contains the log-in ID of users, the computer IP address (online identifier) and video clip details.

Read the rest at the Beeb's site ... but remember ... beware of BIG BROTHER.
