YouTube Briefly Shuts Down Blizzard's Own YouTube Channel For Copyright Infringement
from the three-strikes dept
YouTube’s ContentID system gets mocked quite frequently for bogus takedowns, which happen with unfortunate frequency. The latest, as pointed out by YouTube star Total Biscuit is that Blizzard’s own damn YouTube channel for World Championship Series StarCraft, WCSStarCraft, was down for at least 40 minutes earlier today. If you visited the page during that time, you saw the following:

It's obviously working!
Look at Blizzard, illegally uploading streams of their own content. How dare they?! They should have to pay the movie, music and television studios billions of dollars in damages because… Because… Because copyright, that’s why!
The gamers are the reason people watch it so maybe they own the copyright?
If this happened more often, the content creators who pressured YouTube to do this in the first place might start pressuring them to stop!
Unfortunately, instead they’d demand the ability to bypass the automatic system that everyone else would still be subject too. If there’s anything Hollywood/Music/Big Game love, it’s a double-standard… as long as they get the good end of the deal. You get the raw end.
Thats a big shame for Blizzard…
Start advertising/publishing your products or iterms freely online at: CynMart.com: Free classified ads in Ghana and beyond . attract more costumers to your company or products.
Well, 2 things I ask, one, what law was exactly broken and two, how many millions of folks have done the exact same thing? Oh yes, was it Blizzard or was it someone NOT working for Blizzard who wanted to share the championships?
Clearly Blizzard doesn’t want to share their tournament footage.
The correct thing would be for the account to be forever banned as well as any ad-sense accounts even remotely connected to this account like they do to the unwashed masses.
No review no one to contact.
Tiering is great for storage, not so much for justice.

I am not getting sound when I watch utube videos.
I do get sound when I watch other things on my computers.
Mike Masnick just hates copyright law enforcement.
You may have changed the wording that you cut and paste into these threads, but that doesn’t make them any more true or any less tiresome.
I’ve never seen such an obsession with an invented fiction be so lazy.
Please point out any actual law that were enforced here.
“Mike Masnick just hates copyright law abuse.”
T,FTFY. Or would you prefer this more honest fix:
“Mike Masnick just hates copyright law abuse, but I’ll keep lying and implying he’s against enforcement because I’m unscrupulous.”
average_joe just hates it when due process is enforced.
Did you tell your wife you were busy mancrushing for Mark Cuban?
How To Prevent This
If there were a mandatory penalty of $100,000 per bogus DMCA takedown claim, there would be a LOT less of this.
Re: How To Prevent This
The problem is, YouTube have been pressured into putting in this kind of system to circumvent the DMCA. The people who should be sued have outsourced the enforcement so they collect royalties without any effort and can blame a 3rd party when things inevitably go wrong. They have enough morons who either swallow their lies or paid off by lobbyists that it’s going to be difficult for YouTube whichever path they take – and those responsible won’t face any real comeback.
such cases become a daily routine gossip now not a big deal Moreover, youtube lost its fame due to such bogus takedowns but who cares, lot of other forums like it now are available in market.
