    My guess is that Viacom routinely complains about any of their stuff
    appearing on YouTube without regard for content or origination. In other
    words, they run on automatic.

    You probably have a case, but it'll cost you...

    First of all, it's not the poster who was complaining about the Viacom
    situation. The poster is a spammer just trying to draw hits to his website.

    Second, I was curious so I looked at the videos that were involved. The
    person complaining does appear to have a basis for alleging infringement by
    Viacom. And Viacom does appear to have a basis for alleging infringement as
    well.

    That occurred to me, Paul, but I let it go for the sake of the discussion.
    Yep - I assumed that too. Viacom's wraparounds would be their property.

    This guy has been spamming the ng for a while now. This is one of the
    few ngs left on Usenet that has value, so I get a little touchy when I
    see abused by that guy.

    Exactly. It would be an interesting law suit -- probably the first
    time I can think of in which both the plaintiff and the counter-claim
    plaintiff would win on the same cause of action. :)
