Electronic Frontier Foundation To Protect Some YouTube Users Over Viacom’s DMCA Claims

News.com reports that Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) posted a video over at YouTube named Were You Caught in the Viacom Takedown? In that video the EFF is asking those who have been falsely accused of posting Viacom copyrighted content on YouTube to contact them.

As we reported the other week with YouTube Pulls Videos That May Not Violate DMCA Law some of the 100,000 videos YouTube removed based on Viacom’s DMCA requests included videos that did not fall under Viacom’s copyright claims. EFF’s attorney said, “It may make more sense to go to court to assert your rights.”
