YouTube Reinstates banned Climate video

In July, as part of my “Climate Denial Crock of the Week” video series, I published a piece that criticized and parodied the work of well known climate denier Anthony Watts, and his “SurfaceStations.org” project.

On July 26, Watts filed what I regard as an improper “DMCA” claim against the video, and had it removed from YouTube.

The DMCA, (Digital Millenium Copyright Act), was originally intended to protect copyright owners from internet abuse, but has been occasionally used improperly, notoriously by authoritarian religious groups and cults, in order to restrain criticism and free speech on the internet.

After some investigation of related cases and obtaining additional opinions as to relevant copyright law, I  confirmed my original belief that my videos in no way violate copyright law, especially in light of the principles of critical review, parody, and transformational use of material.

In accordance with established YouTube guidelines, I filed a “counternotice”, affirming, “under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material  was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”

As of today, I have received the following confirmation from YouTube:

” In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we’ve completed processing
your counter-notification regarding your video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcxVwEfq4bM

This content has been restored and your account will not be penalized.”

I wish to extend my sincerest gratitude to YouTube, to all those who advised and supported me in this effort, and most especially, to Anthony Watts and SurfaceStation.org, for providing invaluable exposure to my video series, and greatly increasing my traffic and visibility.

 

Comments

This is a fine outcome, although it doesn’t seem to be mentioned at WUWT yet.

John: I love what an optimist you are.

I didn’t say *when or if* I expected it to be mentioned, did I? :-)

Soviet Union, Iran, etc. are not carefully controlled, but merely mistake-ridden and clumsy, and if people can’t get their message out to raise questions, or are not exposed to other points of view, the only consequences are hurt feelings. I bet you think it’s probably their own fault too, huh?yarisma oyun forex mp3 dinle

optimism only takes you so far though :P

Watts screwed up once and flagged something he shouldn’t have - oh well - it happens - no one likes getting their pride injured a bit.

Of course Watts clicking some kind of flag button when he shouldn’t doesn’t mean the video itself is really on target. I don’t quite get belittling his project of publicizing pictures of weather stations. Thats all it is as far as I can tell - just noting how some weather stations happen to be located by some ac units or on top of some tarmac or in some area under development - pictures of weather stations on the internet just adds to general understanding of average people about what goes on. It’s just a matter of raising questions

- as it turns out some of the questions have good answers but you don’t need to smack a guy for asking.

So in other words, you’re saying that

(1) it’s OK for Watts to start a project to ‘ask questions’ about surface temperature stations

but

(2) it’s _not_ OK for other people to ‘ask questions’ about Watts’s project.

So deliberately trying to censure people for political reasons is “screwing up”? And all that’s at stake is someone’s pride?

Let me guess: you probably also think media communications in China, North Korea, Cuba, the former Soviet Union, Iran, etc. are not carefully controlled, but merely mistake-ridden and clumsy, and if people can’t get their message out to raise questions, or are not exposed to other points of view, the only consequences are hurt feelings. I bet you think it’s probably their own fault too, huh?

“Oh well, censorship happens.” Geezus.

BRAVO youtube!!!
Not only serve film video, but give lessons about our earth..
I hope youtube will make more video about this world in order to save our world..

I stumbled across Anthony Watts’ little playpen earlier this year and tried to participate, but he actually began editing my comments to make them appear offensive!

Its comical to see that his pet weather station project has proven to be both irrelevant and politically useless.

Wonderful post please keep us updating on these kind of issues.. Thx in advance. http://www.kol7aga.com

Alcohol treatment cannot be equal to drug treatment. Moreover many “exclusive” treatment services in Los Angeles make the mistake of treating alcoholics and drug addicts the same method, while if the challenge faced by one group were similar to those faced by the other. But this cleanly isn’t the case. The fact is that alcohol addiction presents it’s wounded with a unique set of challenges on the road to recovery. An exclusive Alcohol Rehabs center that fails to recognize that much, can’t ever possibly expect to help its clients get where they need to go.

The Cliffside Malibu understands the nuances of alcohol rehabilitation. Cliffside’s alcohol treatment experts are important numbers in the field, and take a fantastic wealth of knowledge to their work. Of all the fashionable alcohol rehabs existing, this is why Cliffside is the special alcohol treatment purpose for expensive clients from as far away as Thailand and the Philippines. It’s also why there should be no doubt as to where your interests will be best served.

Alcohol recovery is an extraordinarily easily broken process. To complete it successfully, you’re going to need exactly the right kind of care from exactly the right kind of caregivers. Cliffside Malibu can give it to you with their private alcohol rehab programs. All that remains, now, is for you to make the right choice. The day you arrive at Cliffside’s secluded private estate will be the day you start remembering why you ever believed tomorrow to be a thing worth looking forward to. For the sake of the people who care about you, here’s hoping you can muster the courage to do what you must.

It is sad that the instruments that are created to protect work in the opposite way. It is the first time I hear about such a situation. I read a lot about such projects as YouTube (especially I found a nice and very informative article about it at the pdf search engine http://pdf.rapid4me.com ). And I always admired this project. Well, it is not the best of their moves, for sure.

This is a guest post by David Suzuki.

Energy giant Kinder Morgan was recently called insensitive for pointing out that “Pipeline spills can have both positive and negative effects on local and regional economies, both in the short- and long-term.” The company wants to triple its shipping capacity from the Alberta tar sands to Burnaby, in part by twinning its current pipeline.
