They do seem to be cracking down on copyright infringements with more zeal than usual.

Viacom plays hard ball with YouTube (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=5&objectid=10422485)

I read about this yesterday. Viacom requested Youtube to remove more than 100,000 unauthorised clips. From memory the clips were from mtv, comedy central and others. They tried to come to some sort of agreement but failed to agree on price.

I tried watching Gandarufu's newest Nepal Time trial run the other day, and when I clicked on it, it said that the video had been deleted due to copyright infringement.

One of my videos got deleted yesterday because of copyright infringement! I was so mad! Why do they want their stuff deleted from youtube? It's not like we're making money from them.

It's not always about making money. It's about the creators having control and rights over their intellectual property.

Yes they are. I was watching news the other day (while foruming here:D !). I thing it was (Turner) that is taking off their videos from Youtube. The news also gave a number in the thousands, unfortunately I don't remember, but it was not small!!!!!! :(

Okay... about 30 of my favourites have been deleted within the last 2 weeks. So I'd have to say, they are on a Running Riot :eek:

I noticed a bunch were deleted also. Alot tho were full movies or shows broken down into 10 minute videos.
