You might remember that online video site Veoh recently had a copyright lawsuit thrown out by a judge. That lawsuit was brought by adult entertainment company IO Group.
But Veoh has other lawsuits it's facing, one of them brought by Universal Music Group. Techdirt reports that one of the main arguments being made by Universal was that Veoh didn't have DMCA safe harbor protection because it changed the format of the video and made smaller chunks than the original.
The judge in the case has now said Universal's argument doesn't fly. The lawsuit isn't over yet, but it's another good sign for Veoh and online video in general.
