TorrentFreak: YouTube is Not Liable for Copyright Infringing Videos, Appeal Court Rules

TorrentFreak: YouTube is Not Liable for Copyright Infringing Videos, Appeal Court Rules. “The Higher Regional Court of Vienna, Austria, has ruled that YouTube can’t be held liable for infringing videos uploaded by users. The Court overturned a previous verdict which held that YouTube takes an “active role,” which disqualifies it from safe harbor protection. Rightsholder Puls 4 is disappointed with the outcome and will take the case to the Supreme Court.”
