    It's kinda funny to see the juggernaut that is Viacom, using childish youtube pop ups to ridicule the other side.

    You would think they would try to be more professional and release a similar statement.

    Or just sue.

    I hate Viacom so much. They pulled loads of their stuff from Netflix (even pulling everything at one point), they delete everything on youtube that has a tiny bit of their material, they own pretty much everything in media, and they are huge assholes with everything else.

    Fuck off Viacom. I want to switch to DirecTV just as spite against Viacom.

    And I thought the YouTube vs. Viacom incident in 2008 where they'd let Viacom see people's viewing histories was bad.

    Is there really anything DirectTV can do?

    When you look at it, Viacom owns all of the most watched channels on TV.

    Fuck, Viacom owns so much shit.

    Then the company that own Viacom also owns CBS Corporation and its a fucking movie theater company that owns both of them.

    I remember when those assholes stole a bloke's song and sued him when they unlawfully used it in a shoe commercial even though he copyrighted it.

    Same activities apply to UMG and such when they crackdown on songs they don't even have rights to.

    Copyright is an automatic right, for the record.

    I'll have to side with DirectTV on this one. I won't miss much from Viacom anyway. Most of their channels were shit and had a few shows that I liked.

    Basically they basically became more greedy and DirectTV rejected it. Viacom requested a 30% royalty increase.

    I swear, Viacom is one of the biggest companies in the media industry. They have billions of dollars and yet they become hungrier for money by the minute.

    Oh well, I never liked most of their crappy shows (except Spongebob but before 2004).

    I understand Youtube because... they own the copyright of the content, atleast most of what they took down. By law they have that control. But stuff like directTV or for Netflix when they already had an agreement is what bothers me. "You guys are doing good, we'd like more money." From what I gather.

    Thing is, if you're using it in a YouTube Poop or doing something MST3K style, then it'd be fair use as you'd be making a parody in the case of a YTP, and commentary in the case of something MST3K style.

    That's satellite TV for you. Unless you're in some rural town in the middle of nowhere, there is no reason you should be on satellite.

    I think you could request for it to be attached to cable as well. At least, we have it here.

    It hurts DirectTV way more.

    Those channels are pretty much the main channels the majority watches.

    Viacom doesnt need DirectTV since DirectTV doesnt exclusively air those channels and no one else does.

    Viacom pretty much has DirectTV by the balls and they know this and are huge cunts.

    I also hate the fact that when this happens or might happen with cable companies that they just have to include a SpongeBob SquarePants clip. The show fell into shit within the last 5 years.

    They pulled the link to it on their twitter feed too. Looks like DirecTV wasn't happy about it.
