Australian Federal Court awards damages to artist for false copyright claim

BarryHaworth (536145) writes "In a decision handed down earlier this month, the Australian Federal Court awarded damages to Aboriginal artist Richard Bell over a false claim of copyright infringement. The claim related to a take-down notice claiming copyright infringement from film footage used in a trailer for a film being made by the artist. The court declared Mr Bell the owner of the copyright and awarded him $147,000 in damages for lost sales of paintings and catalogues. The full decision can be found here.

At time of writing, Youtube does not appear to have caught up with the decision."
