Fox Subpoenas Google’s YouTube For Identity Of User Who Uploaded “24″ Video
Steve Bryant broke the story that Fox subpoenaed both Google owned YouTube and LiveDigital for the name of the individual who uploaded the full four hours of the premier of 24. The premier was reportedly posted prior to the live airing of the show and Fox reportedly found out about it on the 8th of this month. The specific profile of the person who uploaded the video was “ECOTotal” and his account has already been suspended on YouTube. A U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted the subpoena on January 18. Reuters and the Hollywood Reporter have some more details on the story.
