Viacom Set to Appeal in YouTube Case

sampleDating from the dawn of the Web-video era, the case has divided many in the media and technology worlds. It centers in part on how aggressively YouTube—and by extension video-sharing sites like it—must police what users upload to its servers in order to avoid being liable for any unauthorized clips.

In June, a federal judge in Manhattan ruled strongly in favor of Google's motion for summary judgment, saying YouTube is protected from copyright claims by "safe harbor" provisions in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The 1998 law shields some types of online entities from liability if they meet certain conditions, such as removing content at the request of the copyright holder. "General knowledge that infringement is 'ubiquitious' does not impose a duty on the service provider to monitor or search its service for infringements," the judge wrote.

Viacom, for its part, has claimed that YouTube had intentionally sought to exploit tens of thousands of Viacom's copyrighted works, such as clips of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," and doesn't qualify for those protections. "It is extremely destructive if the precedent is set in the wrong way," Mr. Olson said in an interview.
