The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has just delivered its Opinion in Viacom v. YouTube, and it has held, unanimously, that YouTube is not entitled to summary judgment on Viacom’s $1bn copyright claim.  The decision reverses the Southern District of New York’s finding that YouTube didn’t need to go to trial to determine whether it was entitled to safe-harbor protection under the DMCA.

The decision is below.  Commentary will follow in due course.
