No, it says Google did not pay for settlement, which suggests the negotiation was just over the percentage of YouTube ad revenue that would be remitted to Viacom.  Google was winning the case, and it looks as if Viacom folded.

Honestly, any company these days would be an idiot not to put at the very least, their old content on Youtube under a revenue sharing model.

It's free money. Streaming is already killing the DVD market, the Weeners that makes sense is to put everything up that isn't moving at retail.
