9th Circuit affirms judgment dismissing UMG's case

NewYorkCountryLawyer (912032) writes | more than 2 years ago


NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "UMG's case against video site Veoh has been dismissed by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, on the ground that the site was a "service provider" protected by the safe harbor provisions of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. The Court's 49-page decision (PDF) affirmed the District Court's 2009 dismissal of the case on summary judgment. For reasons that are a mystery to me, Veoh did not bother to cross-appeal from the District Court's denial of its attorneys fees. Although Veoh has been victorious at every stage of this case, it went out of business in 2010 due to the enormous legal fees it had been forced by UMG to incur."
