View Full Version : Sintel gets taken down by Content ID

Found this on Slashdot just now:

"As if the automated take downs on Youtube weren't already bad enough, today fans of the popular open source 3D software Blender (http://www.blender.org/) were greeted by a copyright take down notice (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRsGyueVLvQ) for their third open movie, Sintel (http://www.sintel.org/), despite it being released under a Creative Commons license: 'This video contains content from Sony Pictures Movies & Shows, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.' It is believed that the takedown was a result of Sony Electronics adding Sintel to their official 4k demo pool."

So, Sony adds a Creative Commons video to their lineup of 4k demos, and because of that, Content ID takes the original down even though Sony has no rights to it. It just keeps getting better and better all the time.

Youtube's copyright takedown process is fucking moronic.

Do you think Youtube's copyright thing will be changed and made better any time soon, what with all the complaints and events such as this?

I'm worried they're just gonna ignore all these events and just leave the copyright thing on Youtube, as broken as it is, alone.
