The adult entertainment company Io Group Inc. filed the copyright infringement case against Veoh, stating that they did not do enough to protect content that they did not own any rights to.

Io Group Inc. was unhappy that 10 adult sex films they owned were posted on Veoh without any authorization.

The judge not only threw out the case, but also granted summary judgment to the defendants.

Veoh was found to do all they could to protect copyright owners.

The company was also safe safe under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.

This is good news for YouTube and their case with Viacom Inc.
