YouTube and other platforms have won a huge victory after the EU made a ruling in their favor on copyright law

YouTube and other platforms have won a huge victory after the EU made a ruling regarding copyright law. As the European Union Supreme Court announced on June 22, under certain special circumstances, Mega Video Sharing Center, YouTube, and some other content hosting platforms are not liable for copyright infringement.

The court ruled that if the online platform knows that the content is considered illegal, the post will still allow other users to access the content instead of deleting it from the website.

The EU has also passed new and revised laws. Some parts of these laws have sparked controversy, even after social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and other similar applications were required to install blockers and filters that prevent users from posting material that might infringe copyright.

The case was originally initiated based on a video posted 13 years ago. These ideas came from the tapes of music producer Frank Peterson, who filed a lawsuit against YouTube to assert rights to his videos. The court’s ruling on YouTube and other websites is a huge victory for these platforms that continue to face similar difficulties.

In the past few years, YouTube has stepped up its efforts to combat copyright infringement. This angered many artists and creators. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, this problem became more serious after introducing automatic content review tools. YouTube paid more than $4 billion to the music industry last year. 30% of this amount is earned through monetization.

A spokesperson for the Video Sharing Center said that YouTube always pays users fairly and takes measures to protect copyright. They invested in an automated tool that will play an important role in creating profits for the company.
