German Court Rules YouTube Must Remove Music Videos

 

Google´s video-sharing website is responsible when users post copyrighted music clips without permission, a German court in Hamburg ruled Friday.

The German royalty collections body GEMA sued the site over 12 temporarily uploaded music videos to which it holds the rights.

It´s not clear if YouTube will appeal the ruling.

It´s clear that Germany is a collective idiot that doesn´t understand the internet.

  Next election  
 
Pirate Party will win a landslide victory thanks to this. They are already at 13%. larmachen zum ?ndern.

GEMA, GEZ, USK, FSK, VG WORT, all of these mafia-like organisations have to be destroyed! So dont blame the german people for our tyrannical government.

  HUGE waste of money....  
 
The costs involved with "anti-piracy" and it´s legislation around the world far outweigh the effect such legislation has on piracy... If people want it, they are going to get it. Kill off all the "anti-piracy legislation" and all of the excess cost associated with adding copy protection to everything, and bring the prices of copyright material to what it SHOULD BE, and you wouldn´t have nearly the piracy issues we do today... Just my opinion.

On the bright side, ... it is kind of nice to see someones greed actually cost them money... :-)
