Apple Think Different commercial pulled from Youtube by FOX complaint?
November 2, 2013 12:13 PM   Subscribe

I had 2 versions of the Apple Think Different ad in a playlist from a few months ago. I went to watch them recently and the pages say "This video contains content from FOX, who has blocked it on copyright grounds." What claim does FOX have to take these down? How can I find out more about the takedown notice.

I am not the original uploader of either.

Here they are for reference:

Video 1

Video 2

Here is the Google Transparency Report site for info on DMCA requests.

Various stories at Techdirt and other sites point to big companies using bots to troll YouTube for copyright violation and filing claims. So they may not have a claim but their bot thought they did and YouTube took it down because it's Fox.

Most likely someone uploaded a whole movie owned by Fox including these adverts.
Fox then claimed ownership of the movie.
Googles content ID bot then matched the advert upload with part of the Fox movie upload and an automatic takedown is the result.

Counter notifications must be submitted by the video’s original uploader

Thanks, that's all pretty much what I assumed. I just find it a bit ridiculous because I can't think of any reason FOX would have a claim to an Apple commercial. Seems like a broken system to me.

Yup, you're right it's ridiculous. More on the broken Content ID system here and here.
