YouTube video yanked - copyright infringement of KESQ-TV

Discussion in 'Youtube and Vimeo Problems' started by Smurf, Apr 29, 2011.

    Anyone that has watched my videos know that they are raw.. I don't add bells & whistles, music, graphics or take footage from other sources.. which surprises me when I got this email today from YouTube.

    Is it worth my time to file a counter-notification? The video yanked must be an old video because the last time I was at Gold Base where KESQ (and Nathan Baca) was there was well over a year ago.

    Just to clarify - have you actually used KESQ footage, or are they just seen in your own footage from your own camera?

    do it smurf - if you got hit and had nothing but your own footage, then this reeks of cult goons impersonating KESQ-TV and your rebuttal of will make it easier for WBM and others to also get insta-restored.

    I never use clips or footage from other sources. I was at one protest where Nathan Baca & KESQ was present. Naturally, we may have videotaped the same thing on our individual cameras, but I don't see that translating as copyright infringement unless KESQ is claiming their filming at a protest trumps the rights of private citizens not affiliated with a news station filming in the same location during a protest.

    Counter complaint filed. Thanks.

    Does this mean that Bunker, who filmed the same event and was also banned for the same reason, can file a counter complaint? I know he's had problems in the past and it seems that his whole channel is busted now while Smurf's wasn't.
  8. AnonLover Member

    Good on you smurf! they over-reached this time... again.... and imo its fitting if its you who gets to smack the ass they just hand you on a silver platter.

    Also consider fwd'ing info to EFF - when utube abuse such as this was rampant, we had support from that sector if i recollect rightly.

    I will do that. YouTube should rename itself SuckTube.

    Both of Mark Bunker's channels are also down.

    "YouTube account xenutv1 has been terminated because we received multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement from claimants including:
    • KESQ-TV
    • KESQ-TV"
    Which is an equally bullshit claim.

    And it's good that you filed a counter complaint, Smurf. Better do those things as soon as you can, before another complaint comes in, terminating your channel. Sure, they can restore it, but still.

    On another note: YouTube sucks more and more.

    YouTube removed 49 of my videos in early 2010 after privacy complaints were filed by Rick Moxon & Ava Paquette. One of those yanked was the video which British Mum Susan Talbot saw her daughter Mandy at the HGB for the first time in 10 years. I reposted it on Vimeo and they yanked it as well.
  14. the anti Member

    are they aloud to do that?

    My videos of the kesq clips were deleted.....channels still up but there is obviously a concerted thing going on

    I'm not super familiar with youtube, but it's kind of weird how when you click on one of xenutv's vids, it comes up how the acct has been removed due to the complainants, and kesq-tv is listed twice. What did they do, complain twice? Also, youtube says "sorry about that." don't know the anon motto do they

    So, it seems to be confirmed via Baca that this is KESQ acting and not another Scilon fake.

    If they are firing DMCAs at other people's material, then they need a smackdown. (A legal one, of course.)

    If it hasn't been done already, someone/somemany of you who have these videos locally, please get some multiupload/rapidshare/etc. packs into the aether ASAP. Make backups, make backups and don't post them, preserve, preserve, preserve.

    I wanna make a playable DVD of the reports and mail it to Mike Stutz, the cockhound who replied to Baca asking what was up (see other thread in media.)

    Mirrors and socks up!

    How many total videos were there in the series? 5?
  28. Anonymous Member

    ^^ There were 10.

    Here is some interesting data: There are about 200 vids with KESQ clips of which 85 are currently about Scientology. I spot checked the non-Scientology vids, and they are all there.

    It looks like they DMCA'ed on the vids on Scientology. Also looks like KESQ is under pressure, threat, or blackmail from the cult, undoubtedly led by OSAbot Muriel Dufresne at Int Base.

    Dox or at least solid indicators of that?

    Sure, they'd have to be complete dicks to hunt down and eradicate any trace of their own excellent series of programs, but there are a lot of complete dicks in this world.

    Hey KESQ!

    Q: "Who are you, and why are you doing this?"

    A: "We are bad men, and for the money."!

    Sound familiar?

    Would it be a good idea to keep video collections at youtube.ru as a safety measure?

    Dear KESQ managers,

    I am a fan of KESQ. And I have collected a lot of videos from your station. Can you explain why you don't want the world to see the truth of Scientology?

    10 of the 2week sweeps, plus full length Tommy Davis interview. RuTube search works and it helps people.

    But parodies & fair use are also disappearing, along with raw footage (like smurf's). So they're not using digital signature takedowns, but doing it it manually.<- This raises even more questions.

    IMHO, after reviewing the videos, there are a few persons that wouldn't mind if these things went away. Scientology, in general (slave labor reports), Tommy Davis (xenu ambush), Jeff Stone (anonymous book) and assorted Riverside employees.
