FTS: "Effectively, what Viacom is arguing is that if someone uploads a video to YouTube, they only intend to let people watch it via the web".
clearly the execs don't realize that phones can browse the web. While YouTube may've made an API specifically for phone use, I can still get on my phone browser and watch youtube videos without the app. And even the app uses the internet.
Even if Viacom's assumptions about the intents of youtube uploaders is true, the videos are STILL being watched via the web.
