Veoh Networks operates a website that allows users to upload and share video content over the Internet. Universal Music Group (UMG) is a major recorded music and publishing company and also produces music videos. UMG sued Veoh for direct and secondary copyright infringement, alleging that Veoh’s service allows users to download unauthorized copies of songs for which UMG owns the copyright.
I previously blogged about this case in Veoh's Services Protected by DMCA Safe Harbor, Rules Ninth Circuit. Last week, the Ninth Circuit withdrew its opinion filed December 20, 2011 and filed a superseding opinion. The Ninth Circuit again upheld the district court ruling that Veoh’s services were protected by a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) safe harbor.
