Outstanding analysis of Premier League class action against YouTube

Hats off to Ben Sheffner’s analysis of the recent ruling regarding foreign copyrights and statutory damages in the YouTube case (which decision is likely to be appealed). Very tricky topic that is particularly hard to explain to anyone in a historical Berne jurisdiction (i.e., outside the US–although the US implemented Berne it did so in a way that many Berne folk do not quite follow).
