Google rules in YouTube case brought by Viacom

from wsjonline:

But Judge [Louis] Stanton [in SDNY] said YouTube's "general" awareness of copyright infringement was not the same as "knowledge of specific and identifiable infringements of individual items." And when YouTube received "specific notice that a particular item infringed a copyright, they swiftly removed it," he said, adding that all of the disputed video clips involved in the lawsuit were off the site.

Google's general counsel, Kent Walker, called the decision "a full vindication across the board" that "resolved all the pending issues."
