I wonder how much this has this cost in legal fees over the years.

Viacom, which has been suing Google over alleged copyright violations at its YouTube unit since 2007, has settled out of court, the two companies announced today.

Google and Viacom didn’t provide details, but did offer this statement: “Google and Viacom today jointly announced the resolution of the Viacom vs. YouTube copyright litigation. This settlement reflects the growing collaborative dialogue between our two companies on important opportunities, and we look forward to working more closely together.”Long Running Dispute Between Viacom and Google Settled Out of Court [recode.net]
