I recently posted about my first copyright strike on YouTube. In it I said that I’d emailed YouTube to see if they would revisit the decision to place a strike on my account.
This is the reply I received:
Thanks for your inquiry. We’re glad you take copyright laws seriously —
YouTube does too. In general, you must be certain that your video doesn’t
infringe someone else’s copyright before you upload it to our site. We
cannot make this determination for you, as it’s your responsibility to
know the rules. To help you, we suggest you refer to our Copyright Tips at
http://www.youtube.com/t/howto_copyright. There, we’ve provided some
guidelines and links to help you determine whether your video infringes
someone else’s copyright.

So the answer is ‘no’. They take copyright very seriously /putting on serious nodding face/. But there you go, there’s still plenty of versions of the trailer available on YouTube….. did I say ‘version’, my mistake: there are plenty of copies of the trailer available on YouTube if you want to see the trailer. Copyright on YouTube: it’s srs bsns!
Peas and loaves.
