Search giant, Google has won a suit for YouTube copyright issue against French broadcaster TF1. French court ruled that Google is not responsible for filtering out pirated content on YouTube. The TF1’s filed the complaint against Google owned video sharing site YouTube on the ground that the site hosts user uploaded copyrighted sports and movies that were property of the broadcaster. Because of illegal hosting and failure to remove copyrighted contents by YouTube, TF1 asked for more than $176 million (~141 million euros) in damages from Google. French court, however, turned down the TF1’s plea and ordered the broadcaster to pay around $100,000 (~80,000 euros) to Google as legal fees.

Since 2007, Google has been striving for YouTube’s copyright issue in the U.S. Last month, Viacom has won an appeal against YouTube and the U.S. Second Circuit Court has sent back the suit to a lower court for determining whether YouTube designedly ignored encroaching material posted to the site or not.

Two weeks ago, a German court ruled on Google that YouTube is exclusively responsible for the content that users upload and post on the site. On the other side, according to the French decision noted that YouTube is not exclusively responsible for the pirated content which has been uploaded by users on the site.

Christophe Mueller, head of partnerships for YouTube in Southern Europe, Middle East and Africa said “We continue to oppose any demands to systematically filter or pre-screen YouTube content and are confident that future court rulings will uphold the need to allow innovative Web services to flourish.”
