Judge Rules for UCLA Twice in Video Streaming Case

For the second time in just over a year, a federal judge has ruled in favor of UCLA in a copyright case involving video streaming for instructional purposes.

In October 2011 Judge Consuelo B. Marshall with the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles dismissed a lawsuit brought by Ambrose Video Publishing Inc. and the Association for Information Media and Equipment, which alleged that UCLA violated copyright by streaming DVDs of performances of Shakespeare’s plays. She allowed the plaintiffs to file an amended complaint but ruled against that as well; her second ruling was issued on November 20.
