ozmanjusri's Journal: Submission 15/04/2007, YouTube clip removal.

Journal by ozmanjusri
A 15-year-old West Australian boy, claiming he represented the clips' copyright owners, persuaded video-sharing website YouTube to remove more than 200 clips from the site. The clips, all from the comic current affairs show "The Chaser's War on Everything", were popular with viewers; one clip featuring featuring Charles Firth accosting Hillary Clinton had been viewed more than 100,000 times before it was taken down yesterday.

According to Stuff, this is in direct contrast to the TV station's policy on content sharing. Courtney Gibson, from Australia's public broadcaster ABC TV said; "[ABC wishes] to get our content out there on as many platforms as possible, run by as many different operators as possible."
