It appears a new battle is brewing on the internet.  Several salvos have been fired.  And there will be lots of collateral damage. 

I was just reading an article written by Michael Arrington at TechCrunch that discusses the implications of a recent court ruling.  See the article, “Judge Protects YouTube’s Source Code, Throws Users To The Wolves” for more information on what is happening.  I have no idea what the facts are in the case, but would you want a company to hand over your userid and other information to another company because of a court ruling? 

As with all things, it seems a few bad apples ruin things for the rest of us.  This is going to be interesting to watch.  Love the comments.
