Says the white-goateed Walt Mossberg: “Viacom wants to get paid more than Google wants to pay it for all of those fuzzy, two-minute clips from programs like the Daily Show that users post to YouTube. The companies tried to negotiate a deal, but the talks failed, so Viacom is suing for $1 billion. I am not a lawyer, and I have no idea how this lawsuit will wind up. I suspect it is mainly a bargaining tactic by Viacom. But I know one thing: This fight isn’t primarily about consumers and their rights, and its outcome won’t necessarily make things better for Internet users.”
