Comment: Harrassment and frivolity (Score 1) 88 88

Isn't there anything in the law to penalize frivolous claims of ownership as harassment? Copyright does not need to be defended as voraciously as trademark, so there is no need for them to keep pumping the entire Youtube side through algorithms and blindly send takedown notices.

Even if there were, well-- you'll have to hire employees to vet the hits. That's the cost of doing business.

Best guess on who it is ?
Somebody that lost their job in IT because they were too old, didn't fit the diversity quota, or just had a SOB for a boss
Someone who is sick of trying to pay rent in SF ?
Criminal extortion scheme we haven't heard the details of yet ?

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
