YouTube not obliged to inform on film pirates, Europe’s top court says

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has ruled that YouTube is not required to hand over the email or IP address of users who upload films illegally to its video platform. The ruling came in relation to a case around combating film piracy concerning German film distributor Constantin Film Verleih. Constantin went to court after Google and YouTube refused to supply the details.
