Google Taking Down Private Videos For Copyright Infringement?
from the that-doesn't-seem-right dept
There's clearly no way that the copyright holders in question would have complained about the video, as there was no way for them to see it. This wasn't a public display or public performance of the content at all, and there may be some questions about fair use -- which, as a court recently reminded folks, needs to be taken into account before DMCA takedowns are sent). Of course, technically there's no DMCA takedown here -- as Google was just doing some self-policing, but it seems like a pretty good question as to why the company is policing private videos that aren't for public consumption.
