EFF IN THE NEWS
July 18, 2007

The creators of videos that have been improperly removed by YouTube and other Internet service providers after allegations of copyright violations are fighting back with a new breed of lawsuits...

Jason Schultz, staff attorney at the EFF, a nonprofit civil rights group based in San Francisco, said that he anticipated that more lawsuits will be filed in the coming year. "What you're seeing now is the growing conflict between how easy it is to censor someone using that law and the growth of what's being called user-generated content on the Internet," he said. "This conflict will generate some legal disputes within the year."
