YouTube / Google beats Viacom over $1B Lawsuit

 

Today in court Google won out over Viacom’s $1 Billion lawsuit, essentially showing that the court has decided that YouTube is protected by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) against claims of copyright infringement.

Viacom had sued YouTube over copyright infringement relating to the many video clips of various Viacom owned programming posted to the video sharing site. While Google has won a “motion for summary judgment” Viacom can still appeal if they choose to do so.

You can read more about this win over at the Official Google Blog and also at Search Engine Land.
