It's almost not worth mentioning because everyone knew this was going to happen one way or the other from the time Viacom first sued YouTube in the first place, no matter what the outcome of the initial case. However, with Google/YouTube getting summary judgment in its favor back in June, it was only a matter of dotting all the i's and crossing all the t's on the paperwork for Viacom's appeal (well, technically, Viacom needed to wait for the original summary judgment to be official). That's all been done and the appeal is now officially in motion, with the paperwork filed to start the appeals process. Get ready for a few more years of back and forth arguments before any of this means anything.
