DivX Sues UMG To Validate DMCA Safe Harbor on Videos

Universal Music Group and DivX are in court over copyright infringement.  Universal has been unhappy with UMG content showing up on the DivX's Stage 6 service, which is a lot like YouTube.  In this case, however, DivX is suing UMG essentially to get a federal judge to rule that by complying with takedown notices DivX squarely falls in the DMCA safe harbor.  DivX notes that it uses filtering software to keep illegal content from being repeatedly uploaded.  Google plaintiffs take note.

The story is in Ars Technica.
