HEUSSEN obtains landmark ruling from European Court of Justice (ECJ) for Cyando – no liability for platform operators

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has strengthened the position of platforms such as Cyando (share hosting platform) and YouTube (video sharing platform). The German Federal Court of Justice had submitted various questions to the ECJ on the interpretation of Union law. The ECJ's answers mean that such platforms regularly do not have to be liable for copyright infringements by their users insofar as they have no knowledge of them (judgment in joined cases C-682/18 "YouTube" and C-683/18 "Cyando").
