week 8: Media Law
By Gina Wang
Google defeated the request from GEMA in Germany‘s court. GEMA wanted Google to restrict the user from uploading the materials that they did not have any copyright of it on YouTube; however, Google Claimed that YouTube was an open platform to offer uploading and they had no right to restrict the content of it. I think Google was right that they have no right to restrict user. All the users could upload any materials they want.
