German Court Agreed YouTube Is Not Liable for Pirating Users

The Higher Regional Court of Munich has just delivered its ruling saying that the video streaming service is not liable for pirate materials uploaded by its users, even when YouTube profits from them. The decision was delivered in the case where YouTube has been battling music rights group GEMA. The latter represents about 70,000 artists and claimed that YouTube was liable for the content the Internet users upload and therefore owed it 0.375 euro cents per view of copyrighted music videos.

The verdict in the case was a clear win for Google, as the court decided that YouTube couldn’t be held liable for the infringing content uploaded by its users. This ruling confirmed the previous one and largely disappointed the German music rights group, which believes that streaming services are profiting from piracy. GEMA promised to appeal the verdict and pointed out that it was not justified from an economic perspective, because YouTube is still able to generate high advertising revenues without sharing them with musical authors.

The ruling was based on the safe harbor principle stating that user-generated content services are automatically not responsible for the deeds of their users. It should be noted that GEMA was not the first agency to call on lawmakers to reconsider this position: for instance, the European music group IFPI also argued that such websites and services must obtain proper licenses. The CEO of IFPI previously also claimed that YouTube was not playing fair and accused it of benefiting from piracy. The agencies believe that there should be clarification of the application of “safe harbors” to make it explicit that services distributing and monetizing music do not benefit from them.
