Band’s Libel Claim Over YouTube’s Video Takedown Survives Dismissal
(July 11, 2016, 1:11 PM EDT) -- SAN FRANCISCO — After previously dismissing a rasta band’s libel per quod claim against YouTube Inc. for the removal of its music video from YouTube’s video-sharing website, a California federal judge on June 27 found that the defendants cured the claim’s defects in an amended complaint, partly denying YouTube’s renewed dismissal motion (Song fi Inc., et al. v. Google Inc., et al., No. 3:14-cv-05080, N.D. Calif.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 83301).
