Online lecture prompts legal fight on copyright

August 27, 2013

Daniel Nazer, an attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said the lawsuit is about more than keeping an academic lecture on YouTube; the plaintiffs want to send a message about how copyright law is used in the digital era, Nazer said.

“Excessive copyright enforcement can suppress free speech,” he said. “All the copyright holder has to do is send a quick e-mail [to YouTube], and they can get things taken off the Internet, whether it’s fair use or not.”
