Aussie studio tries to silence YouTube lecture
An Aussie music label appears to have bitten off more than it can chew after it tried to censor a copyright lawyer’s YouTube Lecture.
For some reason, Liberation Music thought it would be a wizard wheeze to force a Harvard law professor, Lawrence Lessig, to take down his South Korean lecture which contained snippets of a song.
It is clear that the studio did not think very hard before it issued the take-down notice, in fact it had software patrolling YouTube looking for offences and its stupidity was apparently automatic.
According to OPD, the studio’s software, ContentID, automatically issues take down notices whenever computers detect its songs, without taking fair use allowances into consideration.
Unfortunately for Liberation Music, Lessig wants to make an example of it to stop this sort of thing happening again.
Liberation is yet to file a defence to Lessig's complaint, which has been filed in the US District Court in Masschusetts.
