Session Name: Why Viacom V. YouTube Matters (Besides the $1 Billion)
MeetingType: Chapter Meeting
Date: 11/18/10
Description: New York Chapter: Has the Southern District kept the world safe for new technology, or are content creators dying by a billion uploads and keystrokes? In Viacom v. YouTube, Judge Louis Stanton granted summary judgment to YouTube, holding that in the absence of specific knowledge, an online service provider’s generalized knowledge of copyright infringement was insufficient to deny safe harbor protection under 17 U.S.C. § 512(c). While the appeal is pending, YouTube and its parent company, Google, have continued business as usual. This discussion will focus on the possible legal and business ripples of a final decision in either direction.
