First the scourge that was SOPA now downright money racketing. Good job legal system. As always it's apparent who the laws protect.

Because someone always has to try and destroy something fun.

I didn't realize how much. There's vids of it everywhere. I hope it raises enough awareness to stop this kinda bullsh*t.

Well, I went and spread this to the few other sites that I visit. Not sure if it changes much, but it's not any hassle for me.

in my mind
Man, that stinks! I think I got my video reported or something for copyright, but it's still up. I've heard the Youtube appeal process is atrocious.
i know right. i don't mind not getting a strike, but what good is it if the vid is blocked in every country.

Probably like SOPA. Done as best they could to hide it. Or they've finally got enough moderately big people on youtube to speak out at once.

Given what I've seen and heard in these videos, I really doubt that this was for a good reason. :I
Good point. =[

Seems they've also used it to take down the TeamFourStar channel now. =__=
I can assure you they likely had no good reasons too impede on freedom of speech.

Wait, TeamFourStar was taken down?!

On a side note, this whole fiasco isn't a matter of free speech, but one of fair use. Although the Youtube copyright policy has been used as a censorship method from time to time, as we've seen (and for some, personally experienced), more often, the system will be used simply to claim ownership of someone's work in order to make money off of it. Fair use, not the First Amendment, is supposed to prevent this sort of shit from happening.
