Viacom takes a blow in YouTube copyright case
Original post made by Googlewatch on Jun 24, 2010
Judge Louis Stanton in New York granted YouTube's motion to dismiss the case on June 23, saying that YouTube had safe harbor under existing law, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The law says YouTube is not responsible for policing its user-uploaded videos for copyrighted content, although YouTube is required to remove such content when notified.
Media giant Viacom plans to appeal the case.
