    Fox Entertainment Group gave YouTube a very nice subpoena. This subpoena demands the full identity of mister "ECOtotal". Fox wants this information mainly because "ECOtotal" had posted a bunch of Simpsons and 24 episodes, some of which were posted before they were released on television. The VP of Fox Entertainment Group feels that "the uploaded material could cause Fox irreparable harm". Ecototal's YouTube account has been suspended.

    meh, hopefully Ecototal has been using a proxy server and false details. Anyone that steals from Rupert Murdock is a great guy in my book - his companies have ruined televised sport the UK.

    Hardly. Gates is worth many billions of dollars... 5 million is merely chump change to him.

    They will NEVER stop piracy on You tube unless they watch every single thing that gets posted. Very hard to do with millions of users.
