From YouTube:

Hey folks. Hope you all enjoyed my latest video, because the studio behind “A Matter of Faith” decided to take it down. Even though my video is a clear example as to what the FAIR USE clause is meant to protect under section 107 of US copyright law, this appears to be nothing more than an act of censorship and thus it’s another example of DMCA abuse. Along with EssenceOfThought and MrRepzion, we’ve had our videos taken down even though they were obviously criticism and criticized the trailer, which is what the FAIR USE clause is meant to protect.

Angry Joe has been fighting for some time against several companies for the videos he has made on YouTube. The main point of the fight is that his videos are being flagged for music playing in the video games that are in his videos. He has express permission to use these video clips, yet his videos are still being flagged.

What we know so far is that most of the claims against him have been retracted. Affiliates in Korea and Japan are very slow, but are starting to respond and/or retract their claims. The remaining claims are over music and have not yet been released/retracted.

The videos that Angry Joe made, that haven’t not been released/retracted, is lost revenue for Angry Joe. For each video, all money made is going to the company who is claiming the rights over the music. These companies are profiting off of fair use and the work that Angry Joe put into making the videos.

Joe looks tired and defeated in this video, but he is fighting the good fight and many people hope he keeps fighting. Unfortunately, when videos get flagged even with original content of violating copyright, the system is broken and we’re going to hear these cases more and more often.

Companies Joe is still in Dispute with:
Square Enix Co. Ltd.
PlayNC
SME a.k.a Sony Music Entertainment
UMG a.k.a Universal Music Group
WMG a.k.a Warner Music Group
