Not sure what it means?

"undermine the interests of copyright owners by thwarting efforts that providers might otherwise make to try to identify and block infringing material that users submit for posting." Yeah, we're not sure what that means, either.

I'm pretty sure they mean that if this judgment stands, a site that current performs basic checks to see if user are posting infringing items may decide not to make these checks at all to avoid liability for missing something.
