Two weeks ago, during Vividcon, I tried to upload my new vid "Like it or Not" to Youtube. It was immediately frozen, before even going live, by a copyright claim. I uploaded my vid to Vimeo, but I decided to dispute it. I suspected the OTW might be able to help.

I spelunked around the website a bit until I found this: http://transformativeworks.org/news/youtube-blocking-your-vids-exercise-your-right-fair-use

I defended my vid as fair use as a transformative work, linked several of the authoritative sources linked in the post and never heard back. But tonight I went on to Youtube to see what happened, and my vid was live!

Thank you,Organization for Transformational Works!

Here it is, live on Youtube!

And go, you, for doing the work and disputing the take down!

Have a safe weekend.

By the by, I liked the video quite a lot, but am waiting to show the Sphinx (who's the Primeval person in the household) before trying any detailed commentary. Otherwise my chance of getting names right is embarrassingly small.
