YouTube Wins Secondary Liability Case in Spain

Congratulations to YouTube and Google for winning a secondary liability case in Spain (opinion here, in Spanish).  Spanish broadcaster Gestevision Telecino had claimed that YouTube was liable when its users uploaded copyrighted material.  Reaching the same result as the U.S. Court that rejected a similar claim by Viacom, a Spanish court held that YouTube was not liable, given YouTube's prompt takedown of any infringing content identified by copyright owners.  YouTube's blog post about the case is here.
