Back on YouTube

Got home from work and had a few emails from YouTube, and one from BayTSP. I’m guessing that BayTSP is the company that Viacom pays to track down copyright infringement. A search turned up a few references to them and that sort of thing.

Anyway, all the emails I received were positive. For instance: “In response to your DMCA counter-notification, Viacom International has
retracted its copyright claim…” Very professional language in all the email.
I think it would have been a nice touch to be more apologetic.  Heck, I’ve screwed up before and I always bend over backward to make friends. But whatever.

Here’s what BayTSP had to say: “With more than 100,000 unauthorized clips that needed to be removed from the site, unfortunately, there were isolated errors. We regret the inconvenience this may have caused and we will  continue our ongoing efforts to convince YouTube to deliver on its promise of a more practical and  effective method of protecting copyrighted content.”

OK. I’m fine with that.

But most importantly, my account is back. Action is what I really wanted after all. We’ll start posting new vlogs to it tomorrow.
