YouTube Ruled Responsible for Copyright Infringement

Germany court handed down a decision saying that YouTube is responsible for copyright infringement when its users upload copyright-protected videos. Aside from the existing ContentID systems, the court in Hamburg required from YouTube to install extra keyword-based filters to find out if uploaded content is legitimate or not.


The legal battle between YouTube and German anti-piracy outfit GEMA (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte) has started a couple years ago. Meanwhile, an earlier agreement with the group, which represents about 60,000 musicians, had expired back in 2009.

Rather than accepting a negotiation settlement offered by the streaming service, German anti-piracy outfit filed lawsuit on copyright grounds against the most popular service across the globe. The case was launched due to a dozen of specific music videos published by YouTube users. According to the claims of the music right outfit, the efforts of YouTube to monitor submitted material weren’t enough. Finally, a court in Hamburg ruled that the streaming service is directly responsible for the content published by its users, regardless of the fact that the service has enforced the latest filters to block illegal material.

The judge announced that the ruling in question can be considered a victory for both sides. The pro-copyright outfit wanted YouTube to take responsibility for both the content uploaded in the past, and which will be uploaded from now on. However, the court denied this demand, saying that YouTube wasn’t the perpetrator there, it was those users who illegally uploaded the protected works. In other words, YouTube won’t have to search all the files uploaded in the past, but will only have to help find the videos from the moment it’s warned about possible violations.

Now the streaming service is using the “ContentID” anti-piracy system that is able to detect infringements with digital fingerprints. However, the German court decided that in isolation that wouldn’t be enough. That’s why YouTube should filter by keywords as well. Meanwhile, both GEMA and YouTube must announce whether they are going to appeal the court decision or not.

So these people in their claim of protecting the artists are jumping onto FANS that upload these artists VIDEOS?
They do it because they are FANS and are not making any money from it and even are promoting these ARTISTS for free....

No avataralso funny how google even tho 90% of their content is copyright and google makes money from that copyright content, they're not dragged into court handcuffed, and thrown in jail. why are they differenct from megaupload and the tpb?

KitchenSync_RG avatar(He names himself after chocolate cake, and he's calling someone else gay?) LOL

Anywho, regarding the actual topic, I've got a simple solution:

Block service to Germany. Problem solved.

Let's see how they react when all those pencil-pushers doing the complaining no longer have YouTube to play around with when they're sitting at their desks, bored out of their skulls. All they'll have left are Deuschbert comics. Suicide rates would skyrocket. lol

No avatarhi did i not read the other day a judge say that to copy digital software was not a crime this judgement flies in the face of this statement i think ??

kingtiger01 avatarHOW IS THIS NOT COVERED UNDER THE FAIR USE CLAUSE!!!?!?!? i mean seriously, i dont see how thats not defined as "For the intention of criticism"

No avatar@menahunie: yep.
well maybe google should block Germany? from youtube.
this crap is y 2 of my accounts were deleted by google's police.
now I rename my uploads so they don't get flagged. wile others for some reason have drm protection on them and get flagged.
@kingtiger01: the issue is that ANY youtube user can flag as video as copyrighted, and claim ownership. youtubs policy's are BS.

phreakiphred avatarIn the Nightclub I owned ASCAP, BMI on and on came in on a regular basis to make sure my "licenses" were in order and I was paying "For The Rights" to play other peoples shit

Do you play music in any ways?
If so, its use could incur additional charges. You can download and view a sample of related prices here:

Use recorded music in a quiz? From $8.00 per quiz

Use jukeboxes for background music? From $295.41 a year

Play music in your staff areas? From $238.53 a year

Use music with your telephone on-hold system? From $280.61 a year

Play music videos? From $500.99 a year – what's the cost if I have more than five screens?

So yes. I'd say Google should pony-up some of their billions to "blanket" license, if nothing else so we can download the shit! (_E=mc2_) a smart ass
