Ha! Jokes on you.
AVGN's main site is cinemassacre.
Yeah, but you can't watch them without visiting GameTrailers.com (also Viacom) and giving their site more hits.
BTW to the person who mentioned South Park: All of the south park episodes are put up on the interweb for free by the creators on southparkstudios. spongebob is on nick.com, and almost all episodes found on adult swim can be found on adultswim.com.
But if you want to boycott Viacom, you can't visit any of those sites. They gain ad revenues every time you view their sites.
youtube is just stealing videos from these sites >:( (except AVGN)
Yeah, maybe that's true. But that's not the biggest issue here. If Viacom wants their stuff taken out from YouTube, then that business is between Viacom and YouTube. The problem is the way YouTube is forced to hand over its detailed user information to a third party (Viacom). This is going down a dangerous path. What people view on YouTube should be no one's business but YouTube's and the viewers'. However, if Viacom has complaints about what is PUBLISHED on YouTube, then that's a legal matter, but it should be dealt with without handing over my private information.
