  • 1/28/07--Fox's thunder goes down the YouTube

    YOUTUBE has been subpoenaed by 20th Century Fox following the posting of what was at the time unbroadcast episodes of the hit TV series 24 and The Simpsons on the video-sharing website.

    The subpoena, filed in a Californian court on January 18, demands that YouTube provide information identifying the subscriber who posted the clips on the site so that Fox can prevent further infringement of its copyright.

    The case pits behemoths of the old and new media against each other, and threatens the free-spirited ethos that underpins file-sharing websites such as YouTube. Fox issued a subpoena regarding the same material to another file-sharing site, LiveDigital, which said it had complied with the request and immediately removed the items.

    YouTube has not commented on the case, although the disputed videos did not appear to be on the site.

    The episode of 24 is particularly embarrassing for Fox. The new season of the series was the centrepiece of the company's January schedules. But the four-hour premiere, which made its debut amid much fanfare, was posted in its entirety on YouTube before being aired on television.

    The 12 episodes of The Simpsons identified in the subpoena were also posted online before being broadcast.

    The subpoena, first revealed on the blog Google Watch, said the files were being distributed by a user with the web name ECOtotal. The same group of files was posted to LiveDigital by a user with the name Jorge Romero. It also states that Fox informed YouTube of the infringement on January 8, six days before the television premiere of 24.

    Fox had a similar issue with YouTube last year, when an episode of the sitcom Family Guy was posted on the site before being aired on TV. In that case, the user who uploaded the episode was identified by Fox.

    In May last year, Paramount Pictures issued a subpoena to YouTube demanding it reveal the identity of a user who posted a 12-minute clip from the feature film Twin Towers. YouTube complied and the studio, which is owned by Viacom, sued the user for copyright infringement.

    The Motion Picture Association estimates that major film studios lost about $US2.3 billion ($3 billion) to internet piracy in 2005.

            Ya, but it is different when your shows haven't even aired yet....I can see them being mad at that, after them airing on TV, I don't think it should matter.
