Are news publishers directly liable for embedding tweets that contain images not created by that tweeter? » Nieman Journalism Lab
New York federal judge ruled that simply embedding certain tweets can constitute a copyright violation by news publishers. The judge wrote (via The Hollywood Reporter):

Having carefully considered the embedding issue, this Court concludes, for the reasons discussed below, that when defendants caused the embedded Tweets to appear on their websites, their actions violated plaintiff’s exclusive display right; the fact that the image was hosted on a server owned and operated by an unrelated third party (Twitter) does not shield them from this result.

Whereas now, this suggests you could still be liable even though you didn’t know necessarily that the image wasn’t authorized to be posted to Twitter, because the court says you are the one displaying it, and not Twitter.

That’s why, at least, all the copyright lawyers in the world are standing up and paying attention this morning, because that’s a departure from the way we thought about copyright on the web for over 15 years now.
