Why is Seismic Safety Evaluation of Concrete Dams allowed to arbitrarily remove videos? 0 Recommended Answers 4 Replies 0 Upvotes

A group named Seismic Safety Evaluation of Concrete Dams is able to cite copyright issues and remove videos that do not violate copyright rules. As a teacher I record readings and information for my classes to supplement curriculum. I have read about others complaining about this group making arbitrary removals of videos. Other teachers' videos with the same content are not removed, so I believe this act is just to create irritation and inconvenience. I resent getting a first strike notification.

So you created, wrote and performed all the material in your video entirely by yourself?

If they don't have a legal claim file a Counter Notice and they'd have to go to court to force YouTube to permanently remove the video (if they do this the judge agreed with them, not you). If you did use content they control the rights to you can file a Counter Notice claiming your use falls un the Fair Use exception under copyright law. They are not obligated to agree with you, but they'd still have to go to court to remove the video permanently.

Not on the initial fair use counter only a judge can determine that one. On the initial counter they can say nope, and then it is the one claiming fair use that would have to take it to court.

Were you reading content from a textbook? It sounds like they believed your content infringed upon their copyright (showing graphics or reading word for word).

Thanks for the correction, I knew that but screwed up. 

So, if you "just" counter notice, they have to go to court to permanently take down your video, but if you counter notice and claim fair use, they only have to disagree to permanently take down the video. Hmm …  That's quite the disincentive to claiming fair use, isn't it.
