Viacom and Google YouTube Copyright Case Back On [bbc.co.uk]
A lawsuit by media giant Viacom against Google over copyrighted videos on YouTube can be heard in court again.

Viacom has accused Google of "massive intentional copyright infringement".

In 2010, a lower court dismissed Viacom's $1bn (630m) case against Google, which owns YouTube.

But a court of appeals said the dismissal was based on a mistake, as a jury could have reasonably found that YouTube knew of specific copyright infringements.

I don't buy into Google's defense that what they show is not their responsibility because it is always their responsibility regardless of the source. It's their domain. It's their service. It's (hopefully) no longer going to be a platform ripe with copyright infringements. (Pinterest are you paying attention too?)

The Megaupload guy found out first hand how much the content he allowed to be uploaded was his responsibility so I'm fairly sure this will mean some rather drastic changes are on the horizon at Youtube now. If they aren't they should be.

Take that last sentence with a grain of salt, I'm fed up with seeing crappy and often irrelevant 30 second youtube videos appear above my best articles in search results.
