First, youtube/google were the ones being sued for copyright infringement by viacom.,_Inc.

Second, facebooks business model is the same as youtubes, they sell “ads”, big woop.

Third, copyright law is a tool large corporations use to Extort money from other large corporations, case and point “viacom vs youtube”.

Forth, California tax payers subsidy Hollywood corporations like Viacom, Paramount, Disney ext with annual budget of $400 million dollars to make movies, and supposedly create jobs. Therefore, I would argue the tax-payers are entitled to a producer credit for the films they helped financed.

Finally, who is stilling from who, again?  Perhaps copyright is obsolete, but then again, many would argue copyright never performed as advertised to begin with.
