Google not responsible for streaming football from Mediaset

Saturday 17 December 2011 | 16:06 CET | News
A Rome court has ruled that web platforms are not responsible for content uploaded by their users and therefore that there is no breach of copyright by hosting providers streaming football matches. The information was posted by Google in an official blog, in reference to a legal cause launched by RTI, a subsidiary of Italian commercial broadcaster Mediaset, against Google. RTI sued Google for breach of copyright because a portal, hosted on Blogger, allegedly streamed football matches transmitted by the RTI TV channels. The Rome Court rejected RTI's argument because, after notifying Google, the offending content was removed by Blogger. The Court said that a different decision would have been at odds with the European Directive on e-commerce.
