Music Industry Will Pursue YouTube Users

After a Britney Spears concert that took place at the MGM Grand in L.A. was uploaded to the Internet for everyone to see by some YouTube user, the music industry was doing its best to find more information on the user’s identity by starting a criminal investigation.

The Britney Spears concert was uploaded in high-quality YouTube back in July. After the incident, the Recording Industry Association of America requested a subpoena against YouTube. In fact, this was the first time when music industry targeted the online video service.

Mark McDevitt, Vice President of Online Piracy for the music group, made a declaration to the court, where he requested a subpoena ordering video website to offer information on the identity of the unknown user, responsible for uploading the concert, like his e-mail address, IP address, and whatever else the site could know that might lead to his identification. Meanwhile, the RIAA’s representatives rejected to provide any comments over the issue when contacted by industry observers. Despite the fact that the original video was removed from the streaming website, its copies could still be found on YouTube and everywhere else on the Internet. At the same time, online service may not be held responsible for copyright violation as the filling is for a DMCA subpoena.

The media reported that according to the court’s record of proceedings, the lawsuit was filed back in July, but the case was closed after just 7 days. The lawyers confirmed that this may only mean that the court granted a subpoena. In response, YouTube might have agreed on its terms by offering the required information.

Earlier in 2011, Box.net’s users were pursued by the Recording Industry Association of America after the latter filed a similar declaration at a federal court in California. That time, the suspected pirates were supposedly storing pre-released songs on their accounts. Like YouTube, Box.net agreed on the terms if the subpoena was to be granted by the court, saying that it took the confidentiality of its users’ information very seriously, but like any other business, the company was legally demanded to comply with court orders. Thus far, no criminal suits were launched as a result of hunting down those suspected copyright violators. We’ll what will happen to the YouTube user if any is found.

menahunie avatarForget about DMCA notices of copyright violations and take down alleged postings; Just sue and charge the crap out of everyone. problem I see and any defense lawyer will bring up is did the RIAA and MPAA or what ever provide this notice to say YouTube before a demand via court order for account information? If not then according to law they failed to mitigate actions; meaning they didn't do everything before wasting courts time and money..
Then well get into the BS claims of damages from the RIAA and MPAA. Beside Spears is a loser as most performers and waste their fame and fortune on stupidity..

fusseltier avatarthere isnt any damages by having the concert online, the majority of the people can not go see the shows anyway, and they still have a packed house for the shows... they are just greedy and want more and more.
maybe they should have made the concert available online for 5 bucks and made money off of it.

jibbajabba avatarIt's lawsuits like this that make people NOT buy CDs when the fact is that having an artists music on Youtube will encourage people to buy the CD. It's free advertising FFS.

kewzee avatarits stories like this that i read and it reinforces the ideal of sharing for me. the MPAA and RIAA spend more money on enforcement than they would lose just by leaving it alone, instead they're trying to "scare the rest by setting an example." just more futile nickel and dime crap.
