I am interested how copyright law works in the case of Rapidshare, Youtube and etc. Just hypothetically speaking, what if I create a website for uploading and sharing MP3 files, and some users start uploading songs in MP3 format that are protected by copyright laws.
Can I get sued for this? Knowing that it wasn't me who uploaded that content?
PS. also maybe there is some good source where I could read about law cavities related to copyright material?
