Anonymous – A Message To Viacom:
Greetings, World. We are Anonymous.
For years we have had to endure Viacom’s attempts to strip away the basic rights of the individual. We have been silenced persistently, and consequently the free flow of information has been limited.
Thousands of people have undergone the unfortunate experience of receiving falsely-claimed copyright infringements. For far too long have we shared an enraged commonality in helplessly witnessing totalitarian-like actions taking place. The logging of millions of IP addresses and personal information extends beyond the domain of acceptability. When one’s capitalistic agenda interferes with, exploits, and profits through infringing upon an individual’s freedom, we, Anonymous, endorse the people’s rights and hereby demand a refund.
After Viacom lost their lawsuit against YouTube, they continued to exploit YouTube for money. Viacom’s justification of „creator’s rights“ seems only to mean making money for the sake of money. Their hypocritical action of uploading fake videos to YouTube in order to furnish their own court case is transparent:
„For years, Viacom continuously and secretly uploaded its content to YouTube, even while publicly complaining about its presence there. It hired no fewer than 18 different marketing agencies to upload its content to the site. It deliberately ‚roughed up‘ the videos to make them look stolen or leaked.“

„Viacom’s request for all YouTube’s records of log-in names and email and IP addresses was granted by a US district court in a preliminary hearing…“

Anonymous demands from Viacom a public press release to admit and apologize for the fraud and crimes that they have commited. Anonymous also demands that Viacom allows everyone thoughout the internet full rights to be able to express themselves. Lastly, we, the citizens of the world, demand that Viacom stops their attempts to gather personally identifying information such as IP’s, which are of no relevance to them.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
