Viacom v YouTube
Follwing YouTube's summary judgment success in the Viacom litigation last year when Judge Stanton held that YouTube was able to benefit from the Safe Harbor provisions in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act because it did not have actual or constructive knowledge of every specific YouTube URL containing infringing material on the site, The IPKat now has a very good update and summary of Viacom's appeal in the US by Annsley Merelle Ward. Those of you who get the IPKat email updates will know this - and for those of you who don't subscribe to the IPKat - why not? Its marvellous and its free!
