YouTube Court Decision Appealed by Viacom

It was in July when YouTube was handed a victory in the case against Viacom. The decision said that the streaming service qualified for the DMCA safe harbor provision. Now Viacom serves notice about appealing the decision. However, it didn’t specify how exactly it was planning to do so.

The trial between YouTube and Viacom has been a long-lasting one. Considering that Viacom is planning to appeal, it means the case isn’t over yet. There were some dramatic revelations in the process, with accusations flying around: Viacom accused Google of dragging its feet on copyright complaints; Google in respond accused Viacom of having secretly uploaded videos from its own content.

This past July, Judge Stanton handed out a decision that YouTube couldn’t be liable for copyright violation and therefore was not obliged to pay the $1 billion sought by the plaintiffs. Many of the observers were afraid that if Viacom won, it would cause a chilling effect on Internet innovation by discouraging the businesses from creating anything in the Internet that could be in theory used for rights violation purposes. Moreover, some thought that in case Viacom won, it could even push more entrepreneurs off shore for being afraid they could be put out of the market by incumbent industries. As you can see, such ruling would have been very bad for business anyway.

The points working against the plaintiffs included the fact that that once Viacom has sent 100,000 DMCA complaints, the major amount of videos were removed from the website by the next day. Fairly speaking, this wasn’t very helpful for Viacom to build a case against YouTube.

So, now Viacom is reported to plan on appealing. It recently gave notice about their plans to appeal the case, but didn’t clarify on what grounds. It seems like Viacom keeps sticking to the opinion that YouTube is making a business out of illegal material, though the website has a takedown system and DMCA notice in place, with going further and responding to complaints fast enough. The Viacom said it was disappointed with the court’s decision, but still remained confident they would win an appeal, as it has to be illegal for business to earn money from creative content it has stolen from the rights owners.

It will be quite interesting to watch the Viacom coming up with something fresh and new in its appeal – let’s hope it won’t rely on typical rhetoric.

spiritchaser5150 avatarSad that they would upload their content and complain about it later. They're just mad because so many people would rather watch clips on You Tube than the crap shows Viacom is putting out.
