Oh No They Didn’t infringe: Livejournal gets DMCA safe harbor

Eric Goldman on Mavrix Photographs LLC v. LiveJournal, Inc., No. 8:13-cv-00517-CJC-JPR (C.D. Cal. Sept. 19, 2014): plaintiff refuses to send DMCA notices to host website, sues instead.  As Eric says, this is a great case for a fee-shift, since (1) it was unreasonable not to send DMCA notices here, and (2) Mavrix’s arguments are rehashes of already-rejected legal theories.
