BBC WW blocked a YouTube video of mine, seemingly because of the 90 second BBC News 24 countdown it contained.
They also blocked another one of "The Rush Hour" used a few years back with the French guy jumping over rooftops.

Strangest block was continuity on Anglia TV - it was blocked on certain devices (so not allowed on iPad app but fine in iPad browser!) because of a B&Q commercial!

I've left them all blocked for now.

I've had a couple of run-ins since claims from BBC WW, but rather than lifting the ban, I get an email saying that the claim has been upheld. However, the video is still available, even when I watch it while I'm logged out of my account (you can still watch your own blocked videos if you're signed in).

I have a few copyright claims from BBC Worldwide but not strikes. The videos are still online on my AETC (Alexander Edoh's Television Captures) channel.

I've now got two strikes from the BBC (not Worldwide) over clips posted from BBC News in the last couple of months. Strangely nothing before that, as if they've picked a selection of vids and left the rest alone.

That's because it's all automated. There's no consistency whatsoever.


They even skipped some BBC vids I uploaded as well.

I then had to watch a patronising 'Copyright School' video and then answer questions to regain access to my channel. I've switched to posting vids on Dailymotion for BBC content for now.

Here's a clear copyright issue which the BBC should be taking action against, the video has been zoomed in and manipulated.

There's no need to play the video, the screengrab from the shot of the video shows exactly why it's wrong.



I've had copyright notices from other owners on YT for music or other content, but have allowed me to use the content.

For those of us who post presentation videos of BBC content, it's a worrying issue.
