Vivo, Google is making no such claim to the copyright of Viacom's material That of course would be a ludicrous. Futhermore I'm no lawyer but AFAIK they can't even claim copyright to videos legitimately uploaded. I haven't read their EULA but the gist of ones I have read from other similar services is you're granting them a "soft licesnse" for the content. Copyrights need to be legally transferred between two parties.
