That ruling is quite significant, imho.

Court Rules Embedding Videos Does Not Violate Copyright Laws
[gigaom.com]
Embedding an infringing video doesn't violate copyright laws, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday.
The video bookmarking site isnít off the hook completely: Posner found that a previously offered caching feature could still make the site liable; apparently, myVidster used to allow paying members to store copies of videos on its own servers.

However, there are some good news for end users in this court decision as well. Posner found that merely watching a stream of an illegally uploaded video isnít copyright infringement either.

Does anyone dare to draw conclusions what this might mean for other publishers?
