that's what they make money from, analyzing and selling user behavior
to advertisement companies. they are supposedly keeping the data in
anonymized form.

according to http://news.cnet.com/8301-13577_3-9983631-36.html, viacom
wants to prove that youtube's success was/is based on intentional
copyright infringement. this decision is in contradiction to the 'safe
harbour' rule.
