Mossberg interviews Google CEO and Viacom CEO

News: WSJ writer Walter Mossberg also interviewed Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Viacom CEO Phillipe Dauman, separately, asking many questions about copyright law. Obviously, the two CEOs disagree.

Analysis: Because the DMCA safe harbor provision is not crystal clear, the uncertainty allows YouTube/Google and Viacom to have different takes on what it means.  Much of it revolves around how much burden to police YouTube for infringement should be left to individual copyright holders versus YouTube itself.
