Benjamin Wallace discusses the 'Billionaires Vinegar'

As many readers will be aware, US author Benjamin Wallace has written a book on 'fake' wine, titled The Billionaires Vinegar. It focuses on the whole saga of the notorious Jefferson bottles, and is currently the subject of a lawsuit. Here, on an authors@google video, he discusses his book at length.

To make things clear there are two lawsuits.
The first suit concerns if the bottles were fake and is between Koch (a wealthy collector) and Rodenstock (the maker of fake wines). The second suit directly concerns the book and is between Broadbent (auctioneer) and Wallace (author). This suit claims the book implies Broadbent was complicit in selling fake wine.

I was hoping to see Wallace talk about the lawsuits and everything, but this is an old video, isn't it? I believe that I've already seen it and didn't like it that much... More of a bonus to Google Staff than to us, wine lovers.
