[08:34] <@Dr. Xadium> So.
[08:36] <@Dr. Xadium> I made the video "five minutes" showing exactly how long it the five minute fight between Goku and Frieza would take in reality.
[08:36] <@Dr. Xadium> Five minutes of footage altogether.
[08:36] <@Dr. Xadium> So it gets taken down from Youtube thanks to a takedown notice from "東映アニメーション" which translates as Toei Animation LTD.
[08:37] <@Dr. Xadium> Now for all I know it could be a spam account, but still, it pisses me off.
[08:37] <@Dr. Xadium> I worked hard on that video and make no profit by it.
[08:38] <@Dr. Xadium> And it's not like that video takes any profit from them, since there is no way anyone would ever use that as a replacement for their official product.
[08:38] <@Dr. Xadium> I could file a DCMA counternotification but f[BLEEP]k that.
[08:39] <@Dr. Xadium> I don't have time these days.
[08:39] <@Dr. Xadium> This just encourages me not to bother to make anything of fan interest any longer.
[08:39] <@Dr. Xadium> So way to go "東映アニメーション".
[08:39] <@Dr. Xadium> Good job.
[08:40] <@Dr. Xadium> As for me, I'm just going to take pride in the fact that I had managed to actually make a video showing the whole five minute fight in real time.
[08:41] <@Dr. Xadium> And that I have it, securely backed up, for anyone i might choose to show it to.
[08:41] <@Dr. Xadium> And they can never get that.
[08:41] <@Dr. Xadium> But I sincerely doubt you'll be seeing more stuff like that in the future.

It seems like that happens a lot these days: I hear the DragonBall Z abridged stuff got pulled entirely, and the poster banned, despite it surely being a parody under the fair use policy.

Wow... that was totally anal of them. What is it with some of these corporations? I'm glad that I got to see the video before it was taken down. *nods*
