Viacom vs YouTube from Daily Show (on YouTube) Explained by Demetri Martin (Until They Take It All Down)

Viacom and YouTube haven't had the most amicable professional relationship. Viacom filed a huge billion-dollar lawsuit to stop the Tube from posting their intellectual property and now Viacom is being sued by "activist" groups for their insistance that a parody of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" be removed from YouTube. "Daily Show" correspondent Demetri Martin tackled the complex issue and made it funny, if not completely confusing. Even funnier, the clip is still available on YouTube.
