Viacom certainly isn't messing around in its appeal of its fight against YouTube, which Viacom lost big time in the first round. The company has apparently brought on high profile superstar lawyer Ted Olson, the former Solicitor General under George W. Bush to handle the appeal. Bringing Olson in is probably more about preparing for the inevitable Supreme Court review of this case, but clearly Viacom wasn't happy with how its existing legal team did in the first round, where it couldn't even get past summary judgment.
