The top court fight Youtube has finally won

Published

on

Youtube has won a top court fight in the EU.

Europe’s top court has confirmed that Google-owned Youtube as well as other tech companies are not liable for copyright-infringing works uploaded by users onto their platforms under certain conditions.

The case marks the latest development in a long-running battle between Europe’s $1 trillion creative industry and online platforms.

“As currently stands, operators of online platforms do not, in principle, themselves make a communication to the public of copyright-protected content illegally posted online by users of those platforms,”

the EU Court of Justice said.

YouTube found itself in hot water following a lawsuit filed against them by music producer Frank Peterson.

Peterson had sued the company and Google in Germany over the uploading to YouTube by users in 2008 of several clips to which he holds the rights to.

In a second case, publishing group Elsevier took legal action against file-hosting service Cyando in Germany after its users uploaded several Elsevier works on its platform Uploaded in 2013 without its approval.

The German court subsequently sought advice from the EU Court of Justice, which ruled on both cases on Tuesday.

Gen Z’s financial boom living with parents comes with baggage

Published

on

In an era marked by sky-high housing costs, many members of Generation Z are refusing to leave home.

While this arrangement offers financial relief in the form of reduced rent, the hidden costs, both emotional and financial, are beginning to surface.

Business Insider, in an analysis of recent surveys and personal accounts, reveals that Gen Z, defined as those born after 1996 by the Pew Research Center, faces less societal stigma for living at home than previous generations, particularly millennials.

However, this lack of criticism comes with its own set of challenges that can impact young adults in profound ways.

Financial benefits

While the prospect of saving money by living with family may seem appealing, the reality is often more complicated.

Beyond the social limitations, research indicates that living at home may have adverse effects on mental health.

Studies have shown a correlation between returning to the parental home and increased depressive symptoms, as well as heightened familial tensions.

These emotional tolls can outweigh the financial benefits, casting doubt on the long-term sustainability of the arrangement.

Published

Activist investor Blackwells has called upon Disney to implement a robust artificial intelligence strategy aimed at bolstering the company’s shares.

“Disney must produce an artificial intelligence strategy, and share elements of that strategy with its shareholders.”, said Blackwells in a recent presentation.

New groove

Blackwells, known for pushing corporations to adopt innovative approaches, contends that a well-crafted AI strategy could drive shareholder value and position Disney for sustained success in the entertainment landscape.

The activist investor emphasises that harnessing the power of AI could optimise content creation, enhance customer experiences, and streamline operational efficiency within Disney.

Disney’s response

The company opposed the suggestion to replace board members with activists’ nominees, emphasising the potential disruption to ongoing progress.

Additionally, Disney disagreed with Blackwells’ proposal to spin off land and hotels into a real estate investment trust, arguing it reflected a misunderstanding of the synergies within its businesses.
