On October 23rd, 2007 at Santa Clara University, a panel of experts discussed the potential ramifications of Section 512 (frequently referred to as the “Safe Harbor provisions”) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act as they relate to Viacom’s copyright claims against Google-owned YouTube. The panel was moderated by Jenny Lynn Cox, director of the High Tech Law Institute at Santa Clara, and included Mindy M. Morton of Bergeson, LLP, co-chair of the High Technology Law Section of the SCCBA; Professor Tyler Ochoa of the Santa Clara University School of Law; and Fred von Lohmann, Senior Counsel at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
