A U.S. appeals court dealt Google Inc a major defeat by reviving lawsuits by Viacom Inc , the English Premier League and various other media companies over the use of copyrighted videos on Google’s YouTube service without permission. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday reversed a June 2010 lower court ruling in favor of YouTube, which had been considered a landmark in setting guidelines for websites to use content uploaded by users.
