Dear YouTube, Wake UP!

Frustrated with YouTube blocking, removing and restricting private, non-profit, educational, basic free speech videos… Well… we for one are and had ENOUGH!

This is a Wake Up! Message for YouTube and all the Users on YouTube.

YouTube wasn’t always “Google”… and we LOVE YouTube and we are thankful for it’s services! But something has gone wrong… YouTube needs to Wake Up and start supporting it’s community again and fight back.

This is a Keynote Presentation and the song you here was playing in the same room as we were in when we recorded the presentation… :) We have created this presentation to share our personal views and opinions, this is for Non-Commercial use and criticism only… bla bla bla ;)

Here is the Copyright Disclaimer as from within this presentation:

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, “allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use.”

PS: You can use this disclaimer when you get a copyright notice from YouTube ;) if you go on YouTube and search a bit on this topic you will find lots of videos providing you with a clear demo on how to do this… here a really short overview;
Just click on the notification, than say you want to “dispute” the claim or notice, you will get several options, choose the one that mentions the non-profit or non-commercial use. In the next step, you’ll get a chance to “explain” yourself… here you can add the above notice! Sign your name and voila!
For a while it will be “in a dispute” state but visible to all… if they then come back and say they have rejected your dispute or so… you can just repeat this :) or accept the conditions they have sent you.¬†
