|3 THINGS THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD TODAY|
Good morning, here’s your Tuesday morning briefing to set you up for the day ahead. Look out for these three things happening around the world today.
YouTube copyright infringement case hearing
YouTube is at the centre of a copyright infringement case at Europe’s highest court, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
The case, which could have widespread ramifications for user-curated sites, specifically looks at whether YouTube performs ‘acts of communication to the public’ when its users upload content that infringes on copyright.
The case stems from a 2008 dispute in Germany in which the plaintiff – a music producer – argued that videos uploaded to YouTube infringed their copyright. YouTube agreed to take the video down, but more videos resurfaced on the platform, which led to questions referred to the CJEU.
Under EU law, owners of intellectual property have the exclusive right to authorise or prohibit any communications to the public.
