Are Viacom Threatening You?

Have you received a notice from Viacom demanding that your remove YouTube content? Apparently they sent 100,000 take down notices about YouTube content in a single day.

Obviously each of these notices would be meticulously researched, which is why some of them were completely unconnected to the corporation or its content. If you received a notice you feel is unfair and you need help you can contact the Electronic Freedom Foundation for help.

It's time that media giants stopped abusing their position. Once they do that we can address the issues raised by their blatant manipulation of the political process in their favor. If they had their way there'd be no fair uses at all for their content other than paying for it before any use at all.
