KARLSRUHE, Germany (Reuters) – Germany’s highest court BGH said on Thursday it would postpone an eagerly awaited decision on whether Google’s <GOOGL.O> YouTube is liable for violations of intellectual property rights on its video platform.

The law suit, which concerns illegally uploaded songs by Sarah Brightman, was brought by a music producer who has been quarrelling with YouTube since 2008, seeking compensation not only from the uploader but also from the platform itself.
