Youtube removes original video, due to copyright infringement

Hat/Tip to Independent Political Report for the story

at the Pirate Party website 1/11/2011:
YouTube pulls original user’s video due to “Copyright Infringement”
News Article By: Justin, FSP Founder & Editor, January 10, 2010

Last week, YouTube.com had pulled down a video that had 13 million views in 48 hours. This action not only showed us how YouTube favors their partners, and how we need to reform Copyright laws. This video was all over the internet and the news. The video was of a homeless man who has a great voice. He speaks with his radio voice in the video (on the right). People have called his voice “The Golden Voice”. In 48 hours, along with 13 million views, the man in the video, Ted Williams, was hired as an announcer for the Cleveland Cavaliers, a NBA team. We are glad he has been given a second chance, and can use his voice.

However, in that 48 hours, the original video uploaded, the one with 13,000,000 views, has been pulled off of YouTube. Why?
After that video exploded on the internet, news organizations, like the Associated Press (AP), had re-uploaded to their channels, and claimed that the video with 13 million views was “copyright infringement.”

Copyright laws were originally made to protect people’s creations. Now, it is doing the exact opposite. It is not promoting creativity, but limiting those who are creative. It is time YouTube stops censoring, and Copyright laws and policies need to be reformed.
