Warner Music Targets User-Generated Videos on Vimeo
/ April 7, 2009 4:59 pm

San Francisco – Warner Music Group (NYSE:  WMG) has expanded its campaign to rid user-generated videos of its copyrighted music beyond YouTube (NASD:  GOOG) to Vimeo, where the wife of a ZDNet columnist saw her video slideshow of friends drinking removed under a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown notice. The reporter believes the music in the video to be a "fair use" of Warner’s content. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) noted that a recent court ruling stipulated that copyright owners must consider fair use before sending DMCA takedown notices, or face charges of misrepresentation under the DMCA.
