Six-year-old “Dancing baby” lawsuit set for jury trial

28 01 2013

The YouTube “dancing baby” takedown case, made Internet-famous by lawyers at the Electronic Frontier Foundation back in 2007, looks like it will actually go to a jury about six years after it was filed.

US District Judge Jeremy Fogel ruled today [PDF] that neither Universal Music Group, which asked for this video of a dancing toddler to be taken off YouTube, nor EFF, which represented the child’s mother, will win their case on summary judgment. Today’s order, which responds to issues raised at an October hearing, means the case will have to proceed to a jury trial if there’s no settlement.
