The BBC ordered a YouTube Takedown of the video of TTS Episode 37 (News You Don’t Use) because we used 90 seconds of video from a 2011 episode of Top Gear to illustrate progress in the development of self driving cars.
We’re filing a dispute. Gary decided that rated a show.
The YouTube version of this show should survive: https://youtu.be/Dz9Xyv0cUXk
You can see a PDF of Gary’s dispute HERE.
The TTS web site is: http://TriangleTalkShow.com
UPDATE: as of 11/21, it appears the block has been lifted. The video is viewable again (wasn’t it more exciting when you couldn’t see it?). The Copyright claim continues. The BBS has until 12/18 to make a decision.
See what all the fuss was about. The segment they’re complaining about is between 53:19 - 54:43 Here’s a direct link to that segment https://youtu.be/dhdfnN9yNhc?t=3199
UPDATE 1-18-2019: The BBC rejected our dispute just as their 30 days was about to expire, on December 18. We immediately filed an appeal, with pretty much the same arguments that went into our initial dispute (See TTS Epsiode 42). The BBC had another 30 days to respond to our appeal. They let their time expire with no response, so their claim was dropped by YouTube.
We (that would be ‘Gary’ using the Royal We) are not YouTube copyright experts, but we’ve had some experience successfully challenging copyright claims. Below are two examples of YouTube’s contrite “sorry we made you prove something that would have been obvious if we had bothered to actually have someone look at the program you produced” email. OK, I made that up… this is what they sent:
