YoutubeStrong words from Google vp David Eun when asked during a conference in Korea whether there was any chance that Google would sit down with Viacom to negotiate a settlement in the $1 billion copyright infringement case over YouTube.

"Nope,'' said Eun, the exec in charge of content partnerships at Google. "We're going all the way to the Supreme Court."
