Google must divulge YouTube log

Just saw this on the BBC News page, posted today:

There's a few scary lines in here: "Google must divulge the viewing habits of every user who has ever watched any video on YouTube, a US court has ruled" and "While the legal battle between the two firms is being contested in the US, it is thought the ruling will apply to YouTube users and their viewing habits everywhere" (italics added for effect). I'm sure that there will be more reports on this in the days to come as well; maybe it won't be as drastic as first described. I would suspect that the judgement will be appealed.
