A lawsuit by media giant Viacom against Google over copyrighted videos on YouTube can be heard in court again.
Viacom has accused Google of "massive intentional copyright infringement".
In 2010, a lower court dismissed Viacom's $1bn (£630m) case against Google, which owns YouTube.
But a court of appeals said the dismissal was based on a mistake, as a jury could have reasonably found that YouTube knew of specific copyright infringements.
Google took over YouTube for $1.76bn in 2006.
Viacom owns popular cable channels such as MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon.
