He was MY Drunk Guy!

I know there’s a lot of posting and re-posting things on the interwebs. I’m totally fine with removing things that are blatantly stolen.

However, Youtube has begun to make things personal by removing entire audio tracks and inserting ads where they don’t belong. Not to mention they deleted 30,000 videos recently and flagged thousands of others without warning.

One of those flagged videos, was mine…

The short story:
My friend and I made this video of a poor drunken bastard who decided to stick his penis in the grill of a Bronco truck. Why was he doing it? Beats me.(no pun intended) You’ll have to ask OJ Simpson if you want to know why this vehicle makes people do crazy things.

The long story:

So I got the Youtube slap. Any ideas on who I can slap for this? The alternative is sniveling in a corner and making my drunk guy’s private parts well, private. :no:

    I’m more surprised that Youtube even allowed you to post the video of a guy humping a truck. I hope this gets fixed because I think it would be a great contribution to the internet.

    On a side note, there’s somebody making money off a guy humping a truck? I’ve been working and all I had to do was this?

    Your definitely allowed to post this kind of material its really nothing bad (I seen worse). And as for the money thing yeah you could earn a lot of profit. Remember society likes watching unordinary things.

    As for the copyright thing, yeah if the person already copyrighted it than its theres and not yours cause you wont have the proof. But you definitely shouldn’t have gave the person the file. First that letter started with “Hiya” nobody says this, at least professionally. And SpikeTV don’t have people lurking through youtube just to find funny vids, its usually the users that send them into SpikeTV.

    But yeah the law has a lot of flaws in them.

    I got ripped off by a major corporation and I actually had a lawyer involved in our whole thing right from the onset, so it’s not uncommon at all to get the shaft.

    That’s the sad part, the good part is that you have documented dates, e-mails, contacts etc. Mainly in the form of any exchanges with your friend that you did this in conjunction with. Also though, through the band, which can prove your request. What would further make this more concrete is if you mentioned what the video was of when you spoke to the band.

    I’d personally try to put all this together and even ask the band if they’d be willing to support you possibly by contacting youtube regarding it(I’m sure they would since they understand the desire to hold onto their creative rights themselves). Then I’d file the complaint and actually request the information regarding has claimed that hold the copyright to the video in question.

    I hope this gets ironed out for you, it’s total bullshit when someone’s creativity gets stolen by another for any reason.

    hmm…. that sucks 🙁

    Hopefully you’ll figure out a way to get back at them or atleast get your stolen property.

    I’m not sure if this helps but my wife and I watch a lot of shows on Tru TV (formally Court TV). And they’ve shown a particular video of a drunk man humping the grill of an SUV on a few of their TV shows like “Most Shocking” and “The Smoking Gun Presents: Worlds Dumbest”. It’s possible that Tru TV is the culprit behind the take down of your video.

    so is it, we have become a society where a man can not have some privacy with a stranger car anymore…that is sad.

    Very interesting your story, Thieves video become a plague and you tube/google policy is ” if you are not a corporation or a big advertiser we can screw you how and when we want”.

    BTW many people forget that if upload a video of someone else, must have him/her consent. In this case only that fellow drunk carlover or the bronco truck could ask to remove the video, and they have all the rights
