Banned from YouTube

banned form YouTube

Are you trying to watch any of the skateboarding commercials and other media flotsam and jetsam that we posted? My user account has been unceremoniously and permanently disabled. The only notice I got was something about the Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation complaining about the clip I had posted titled T Bag gets hit with a skateboard. It was about 15 seconds of the character T Bag from the Show Prison Break, getting hit in the head with a skateboard. I can understand how Fox or anyone else wouldn’t want entire episodes of their intellectual property put online where people can watch it for free and Fox doesn’t get the ad revenue. However, short clips? Why not? It doesn’t cost them any lost revenue, and it generates publicity for the show. I suspect that particular offense had less to do with copyright infringement and “the suits not getting it” than it did with the fact that Fox owns the YouTube competitor MySpaceTV.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. I think I only had one other incident where a video was removed, and it was for reposting our appearance on Attack of the Show. They must have actually looked at the rest of the commercials and out takes I had uploaded. Users with suspended or terminated accounts are prohibited from creating new accounts so I guess my double secret probation is over. What I need is a good video hosting solution out in Sweden or wherever it is that they don’t get bent out of shape about this, a Pirate Bay equivalent of YouTube. Am I a hypocrite? By the strictest interpretations, yes. But I never posted entire episodes of anything, and I don’t think it’s the same thing to use it editorially. Of course, doesn’t matter what I think. GVK‘s are unaffected as Grover posted them under his account.

  1. Banned from YouTube, OK!
    I never much liked watching low-res anyway!
    Said they only wanted well-behaved boys,
    Do they think foreheads and skateboards are just f-in toys?!

    GUNS!

    Haw. That sucks, Kilwag.

  2. I got a email from YouTube too about using a clip of the Dew Tour- NBC came after me. I removed everything that wasn’t original. Even a harmless run of Shaun White in a practice session was even removed.

    yep. its why stage6 was so nice.
    almost all the other stuff i find from other sites is flash too. thats bunk, compared to the Divx site. the quality was great in comparison. i dont really want to see any movies bad enough to watch the flash versions, anymore. divx ruined it for me. stage6 made youtube the internet betamax. at least i got alot of nice looking skate videos from stage6 while it was up. i hope that format continues somewhere else.

    i was just thinkin about it and maybe divx is just flash with a better framerate?

  16. Flash isn’t the culprit, it’s the data rate that the flash video files are compressed at. It’s possible to have very nice looking Flash videos.
