LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – The Viacom vs. YouTube lawsuit just took a funny turn with comedians called to the stand. But how funny? And how effective will the comics be in the billion dollar lawsuit?
Google Inc. wants to question under oath two Comedy Central stars, Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Report and comedian Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, in connection with the $1 billion copyright infringement lawsuit brought against the company and YouTube Inc. by Viacom International Inc. However, in the court filing, the Google, which owns YouTube, doesn’t say why it wants to question the funnymen. Google couldn’t be reached for comment.
