The YouTube channel Intelligence Squared issued a copyright strike against me and threatened to sue for uploading this 4 minute clip so that I and my subscribers could have some commentary and analysis about it. This interview was slammed in the comment section of the full thing - the comment section for this upload was trending that way very early. They claimed infringement within a couple of hours of me posting this, and then I found out from the larger creator community that they are notorious for this and everyone either backs off or doesn't monetize their content. Almost everyone else who conducts these interviews either appreciates the clipping when done right because it creates buzz and the news coverage funnels additional views, but some will ask to take the revenue from any ads (which I gladly agree to - have done it with Crowder, Russell Brand, and Norm Macdonald). Only morons who don't understand how they're going to hurt themselves in the long run issue a copyright strike against an independent journalist just because his channel is small and they think he'll panic, roll over and retreat against his principles. The quality of the interview reflects the quality of judgment of the person at ISquared who issued a manual copyright claim (look at the few comments that had come in before they struck it - wonder if that was a factor).
My counter-claim cited fair use with the following arguments:
-I am an accredited, published journalist with a well-established presence on YouTube
-I cover JBP and the intellectual dark web
-The original was clearly and prominently credited - accessible via a link visible in the description that did not have to be "unhidden" through "show more" and which users merely had to click on to see the full interview, which there were clearly encouraged to do
-The clip was a small portion of the original
-No reasonable person could conclude that my channel stole market share from ISquared
-The poor quality of the interview was itself a news story worthy of coverage (which I have a well-established history of doing)
-That once this was resolved I would be exposing ISquared's frivolous abuse of the YouTube copyright system
They backed off. As far as I can tell I am now the only channel on YouTube that can run ads on content generated from my news coverage, and commentary and analysis, of the IDW even if it's sourced from Intelligence Squared, but there may be others.
