YouTube, MyTake – An IP Colloquium Episode

By Doug Lichtman

Posted on October 14, 2010


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.

YouTube, MyTake is available online at IP Colloquium's Web site, or you can begin listening to it from the download link (below). And, as per usual, lawyers who listen can earn free CLE credit in California, New York, Texas, Illinois and several other states.
