If you've just done a law class, you should know that in a civil suit there's no presumption of innocence, merely balance of probability.

Wow, you leave for a better part of the week and come back to find your post out of control. :shock:

Thanks for everyone who replied. I didn't think it would attract the attention of niko or slashdot. Although, I did post this on digg out of pure anger since it took some effort to make and upload the videos. I was planning on removing all my videos from youtube this weekend to protest.

I got an email from youtube today:


Subject: [#111123808] Copyright Claim Retraction
Date: Fri, 09 Feb 2007 00:11:30 -0800

Hi there

Viacom International has retracted its copyright claim with respect to the
following videos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4x7MsNVl0w

This content has been restored and your account will not be penalized. For
technical reasons, it may take a day for the videos to be available again.

Sincerely,

Jacob
The YouTube Team



Once, again thanks for everyone who helped out especially bitplane. The CEO of Top10 Media, Inc also contacted me on several legal paths to resolving this issue. Fortunately, we don't have to go down that path.

I think viacom retracted their claim in part due to the overwhelming responses from various media outlet, news, forums, blogs, etc. It goes to show how powerful our voices can be when we speak up for our rights. So, I have to thank everyone who took the time to read/post/respond to all of this. If not for you, VIACOM would have gotten away with this. Again, thank you all.

I haven't a clue what it is that's in the example 5 video that viacom owns. Maybe they own the user-interface of irrlicht? :(

Here's the full email:

wow ..you too eh! Yeah, im working on a plan..its not a joke..they took away so many peoples legitimate vids. Mine was of a little indie band in Montreal called Call Me Poupee(Call Me Doll) who opened for The Dresden Dolls in July at a little venue. Its ludicrous and highly illegal what they have done not only breaking the law in the United States but as well Canada and who knows where else. I have one email that i dredged out of my gmail from months back when I emailed copies to Amanda of The Dresden Dolls.. so they really have no claim or right. I will look at any class action suit..but will consider certain actions of my own I have planned for Viacom! Ultimately they broke the law while trying to claim everyone else is acting illegally. For that they should pay. I only write this in support of someone else that it happened to and to show the people who may just think its isolated that it is not. One letter someone showed claimed that they had viewed every offending video before removal. Do you believe that? That means they admit that they are guilty because if they had actually viewed the videos then they would have known that they have nothing to do with anything of theirs. Hard to believe also coming from a company that has core assets that are dependent on videos for profit! -bill
