EuGH: Youtube haftet nicht für Urheberrechtsverstöße durch User – Youtube hat einen Rechtsstreit gegen einen Musikproduzenten gewonnen. Laut dem Europäischen Gerichtshof haftet die Plattform nicht für Urheberrechtsverstöße. – Wenn Nutzerinnen oder Nutzer illegal Videos auf Youtube veröffentlichen, die gegen das Urheberrecht verstoßen, haftet die Plattform laut dem Europäischen Gerichtshof nicht. Plattformen würden nur die Infrastruktur bereitstellen und die Inhalte nicht selbst verbreiten, begründete der Gerichtshof die Entscheidung. – Dieses Urteil bezieht sich auf die aktuelle Rechtslage. Die Urheberrechtsreform wurde nicht berücksichtigt. … Sollte ein Plattformbetreiber vorsätzlich und wissentlich die illegal veröffentlichten Inhalte verbreiten, kann er haftbar gemacht werden. Die reine Bereitstellung der Plattform reiche dafür nicht. … Laut der Urheberrechtsreform, die in Deutschland im August in Kraft tritt, können Plattformbetreiber verpflichtet werden, urheberrechtlich geschützte Inhalte schon beim Upload zu verhindern.“
