Youtube Update

After wrangling for nearly a year with Youtube about a company (craze productions) claiming copyright infringements on Public Domain films, the company has finally decided to stop those fraudulent claims after many of their channels were closed because they were uploading, get this, non-public domain films (doh!). I can now upload Public Domain films again, including many of my clips, back again at Youtube. This has been a complete nightmare as many clips and compilations I've worked on had ads forcibly imposed on them because of these claims. This company was basically leeching off on my stuff, which I worked hours upon hours on and I had to remove them. I had many special features and profiles which were very popular and had 10s thousands of view which are now all gone. I'm going to try rebuilding the channel from the ground up even if I'm a bit hesitant as I don't want this to happen to me again.

I wasn't the only one who fought against them. But I'm glad they stopped. Thanks.
