+ - Mistaken YouTube takedown of national TV reporter

Submitted by parodyca
parodyca (890419) writes "David Akin is a national TV reporter for CTV in Canada. Youtube recently took down his home video of his trip to Vimy Ridge (A Canadian national monument) in France. His video was here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71fBv-U-6b8 and was ordered down via DMCA by a law firm called Holland & Hart LLP. But from Akins description there is nothing possibly infringing in the video. By strange coincidence another video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71fBv-U-6b9 was also ordered down by the same law firm. Is this another example of the consequences of not having any accountability for these takedown notices? Having now happen to a national TV reporter with the DMCA get the bad press it so richly deserves?"
