YouTube Is Not A Crime: EFF And Viacom Settle Up

July 18, 2007

The EFF has dismissed its lawsuit against Viacom. The suit was originally filed last month on behalf of MoveOn and Brave New Films after Viacom sent a massive number of DMCA takedown notices to YouTube which resulted in the removal of content that was in no way related to Viacom,

In a note on the EFF site yesterday the foundation writes that it dropped the suit because "Viacom acknowledged their mistake, told us about the policies it has put in place to protect fair use on YouTube, and agreed to introduce improvements to those policies."
