German supreme court refers landmark case on YouTube to EU court

KARLSRUHE, Germany, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Germany's highest court BGH said on Thursday it would postpone an eagerly awaited decision on whether Google's YouTube is liable for violations of intellectual property rights on its video platform.

The law suit, which concerns illegally uploaded songs by Sarah Brightman, was brought by a music producer who has been quarrelling with YouTube since 2008, seeking compensation not only from the uploader but also from the platform itself. (Reporting by Ursula Knapp Writing by Tassilo Hummel)
