An Open Letter to Jay Leno About Stealing My Video and Then Getting It Removed From YouTube | Splitsider

Video banned from YouTube because it was on TV.

Your company NBC just up and blocked our video and claimed that we are copyright infringers! But we are not! We made it! And this is the video that you said you loved! Now, if you try to watch our video (and again this is the video that had nothing to do with you until you used it in your show without asking) on YouTube it’s just a big black sign that basically says, “the makers of this video stole this video from NBC, so you can’t watch it!” Jay, what in the hell is going on here?

This must be done with some sort of fingerprint technology, which means any YouTube video featured on a mainstream tv-channel might suffer the same fate.
