A Pennsylvania woman uploaded a 29-second garbled clip to YouTube that featured her toddler dancing to Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy.” Universal sent YouTube a DMCA takedown order. YouTube yanked it. The woman put it back up and took on representation from the EFF to sue Universal. Now months later, while it’s unlikely the woman will win her lawsuit, a federal judge has ruled that media companies should consider “fair use” before issuing takedown orders. And if they don’t, that could open them up to misrepresentation claims. Wired does a good job explaining it here.
