YouTube, MyTake

In this edition of the IP Colloquium, we tackle the contentious question of whether Google should be held responsible for the copyright infringement that its YouTube website facilitates. We engage the issues by drawing on excerpts from the voluminous materials filed over the past three years in the Viacom/Google litigation. Specifically, we’ll consider how both Viacom and Google frame the basic case; and we’ll critically explore each side’s position with respect to the storage, knowledge, and control issues raised by section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. UCLA Law Professor Doug Lichtman hosts.
