YouTube copyright case in Spain — Google cleared
September 26, 2010
“Google has been cleared in a YouTube copyright-infringement case filed by a Spanish broadcaster.
In its lawsuit against the search giant, Spanish broadcaster Telecinco claimed that YouTube should be held responsible for people who upload videos that infringe on Telecinco’s copyrights.
But a federal court in Madrid rejected those claims today, ruling that it is the responsibility of copyright holders to identify such content and inform YouTube if it infringes on their copyrights.”
