    This usual?

    Dear Member:

    This is to notify you that we have removed or disabled access to the following material as a result of a third-party notification by Viacom International Inc. claiming that this material is infringing:

    La verdad de la milanesa/Truth about milanesa: [ame][/ame]

    (It was the section on South Park about how the "head" was telling Stan that he had to write on and explains how a "global scam works"?
    I don't think that "third-party" has something to do with ComedyCentral, does it?

    Please Note: Repeat incidents of copyright infringement will result in the deletion of your account and all videos uploaded to that account. In order to prevent this from happening, please delete any videos to which you do not own the rights, and refrain from uploading additional videos that infringe on the copyrights of others.

    Don't jump to conclusions...
    Viacom is super extra vigilant about taking down videos.

    They do the same for Daily Show and Colbert vids.

    The Comedy Central folks in particular have seem to taken a hard stand with YouTube. It very likely is Viacom as they own Comedy Central.

    edit: How much of the clip did you use? And why was it posted? Might fall under fair use, might not.

    I just selected one minute from the "In the Closet" and added translations of the dialogue in Spanish for those who cannot understand it in English.

    Ah - not even sure if Fair Use would apply outside the US. Was it used to make a political statement used in conjunction with some other video? Inside the US that would fall comfortably under Fair Use and Free Speech and you could then make a argument with YouTube/Google about it. If it just because you think its funny I think you're pretty well screwed.

    It's still copyright infringement and the rights-holder CAN nail your bollocks to the wall for it if they feel so inclined.

    Re: This usual?

    Inside the US that might not necessarily be true.

    Re: This usual?

    Should I reply or just... let it be?

    I just wanted Spanish-speaking people to have access to that particular part of the episode in which they are openly saying that Scientology is a scam.
    I mean, openly telling the actual Truth.

    That was all. No big issue.

    Should I be.. like... scared???

    Basically, Viacom is within its rights to claim copyright and YouTube will always kneel down and blow the giant corporation before defending the little guy.

    Unless you can get explicit permission from Viacom to use that clip in the manner you wish, you really have no recourse as far as YouTube is concerned.

    Hope that helps.

    Ok, so, I let it slide....

    If they don't want it, that's it.

    I was just wondering if they were going to take any more measures... but if taking down the vid is all they will do... no problem.

    It is likely a strike against your account, so you'll want to make sure you don't run afoul of the TOS anytime soon, but it probably won't be that big a deal if you're careful.
