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!
