Online Copyright Infringement

Joined with 22 other organizations in an amicus brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Viacom v. YouTube.  The brief urges the court to overturn a district court decision that would immunize an Internet business that intentionally relies on stolen copyrighted content to build its audience.  The brief argues that it is not adequate merely to comply with formal “takedown” notices received under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.  If the lower court ruling is upheld, it will distort the “safe harbor” provision in a way not intended by Congress, the brief said.  [2010]
