Over the weekend I posted a videoblog entry critiquing some comments made by Attorney General Rob McKenna in a video voters guide posted online by the Association of Washington Businesses. And tonight I discover that YouTube has pulled the video.
Why? I can only assume that the cowards at the AWB complained to YouTube that I had violated their copyright by including clips from their video. And at this point, I’ve had so many bogus complaints filed against me by the likes of the BIAW, the AWB, the Washington Association of Realtors and other Republican front groups, that YouTube just automatically yanks my videos assuming I’m a shameless pirate.
So, I’d like to offer the AWB the same deal I offered the Realtors: sue me. Really. Sue me. Because every time you have my video yanked, I’m just going to repost it somewhere else, as is my right under the fair use doctrine. So if you think you have a case, take me to court.
Or don’t you have the balls?
