YouTube Accuses Viacom of Secretly Putting Videos Up While Publicly Complaining About Them

More accusations in the war between Google’s YouTube and Viacom.

YouTube is saying that Viacom was secretly uploading videos to its site at the same time Viacom was complaining that the videos were appearing on the site, says a BBC News article.

The story says that Viacom "deliberately ‘roughed up’ any uploaded videos to make them look stolen or leaked."

According to  the BBC piece, " ‘For years, Viacom continuously and secretly uploaded its content to YouTube, even while publicly complaining about its presence there,’ said Zahavah Levine, YouTube’s chief counsel wrote in a blog post."

Viacom, back in 2007, filed a lawsuit against YouTube for copyright infringement for posting unauthorized copies of material owned by Viacom.

Just this week previously sealed documents in the case were released.

Oral arguments in the case are expected to be finished by June, according to the BBC article.
