Supreme Court Won’t Hear Appeal in Capitol Records Vs Vimeo Copyright Dispute




The ruling said websites are protected from liability for inadvertently hosting music recorded before 1972.

The Supreme Court won’t hear an appeal from record companies that want to pursue copyright infringement claims against music site Vimeo for hosting unauthorized recordings from the Beatles, Elvis Presley and other classic artists.

The justices on Monday left in place a federal appeals court ruling that said websites are protected from liability even for older music recorded before 1972.

Supreme Court Asked if DMCA Safe Harbors Apply to Pre-1972 Sound Recordings

Capitol Records and other music companies sued Vimeo for violating copyright laws based on 199 videos uploaded by users. A federal judge ruled a federal “safe harbor” law did not cover pre-1972 recordings that are protected by state law.

But a New York federal appeals court overturned that ruling, saying service providers would incur heavy costs to monitor every posting or risk “crushing liabilities” under state law.
