Turning tables on copyright enforcer

Attorney Michael Kwun is arguing that his client, Stephanie Lunz should get $430,000 in damages (mostly attorneys fees) because Universal Music insisted the YouTube take down her child’s video dancing to the Prince’s song, “Let’s get crazy.”

Its seems that Universal was a bit hasty in pulling down the video and that Lunz’s attorney filed a counter notice and had it restored.  But that wasn’t enough for Kwun.  He is looking for damages under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.

However, the judge rules this appears to be a positive development, equalizing the playing field between big music companies and individuals.
