Video Site Veoh Sues To Stop Universal

March 28, 2008

Faced with saber-rattling by Universal Music Group (UMG), online video sharing network Veoh has requested a federal judge to rule that its business is protected by the Safe Harbor provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act...

If the courts decide against Veoh or Google and its YouTube property, the legal landscape for such Web 2.0 sites could be substantially altered. "Google has basically been following the advice of the best lawyers in Silicon Valley," Electronic Frontier Foundation's Fred Von Lohmann said at the time Viacom filed its case. "If Viacom wins, that would call into doubt all of the business models that relied on the same kinds of legal advice."
