YouTube IP Nazis Went on a Blitzkrieg
I logged onto my YouTube account as I often do and noticed that about 20 of my saved "Favorites" had been stricken from the site for copyright violations. These are NOT items I posted. These are items posted by others. They cover music, comedy and even some self-produced clips, which was even weirder. Clips of comedian Brian Regan, George Carlin, Chris Rock, musicians like Frank Zappa, Limp Bizkit, and Cream, and so on. Not even the same publishers or rights holders. All of these clips had been "up" for at least a year. Many for two or three years. Looks like someone got a bug up their *ss. The Internet is becoming less and less fun to use.
