la vicenda era questa: analisi e documenti, la pistola fumante, altra pistola fumante, utenti fecero causa a viacom (il contrattacco è un'ottima difesa), YT come catchup tv, argomento a difesa di Youtube, la prima decisione ed il ricorso in appello.
Appeals Court Revives Viacom Suit Against YouTube - NYTimes.com.
“Nothing in this decision impacts the way YouTube is operating. YouTube will continue to be a vibrant forum for free expression around the world.”
Viacom, however, said in a statement that it was pleased by the ruling. “The court delivered a definitive, common-sense message — intentionally ignoring theft is not protected by the law,” the statement said.
James McQuivey, an analyst for Forrester Research, said Thursday’s ruling signified that “the law and the courts are swiftly becoming irrelevant because they can’t keep up with the digital economy.” “For a digital copyright lawsuit to take five years to come to no conclusion at all — by which time the fundamentals of the market have changed completely and any precedent that might eventually be set could set us back to the stone age — shows that the ‘winner’ of any lawsuit is no winner at all,” he wrote in an email message.
