Watching Youtube? They're watching YOU, too.

Its not hit the UK just yet, but in the US it has now been ruled that Youtube have to surrender the IP addresses of everyone who has watched a Youtube video as well as what video it is they were watching, not to mention user names.

How the **** did this happen?

Is privacy no longer a given right for us anymore? Are our personal viewing habits now open to some sort of invisible scrutiny?

Here's a link..

It won't be long before this law hits the UK, at which point I think I may be in trouble. As I put Youtube videos on all my Amazon reviews, I will now be "on file" as watching some of the worst things ever made. I think they'll put me in a nut house.

Don't abuse children, or else they'll turn out like me.
