Support Climate Denial Crock of the Week - go to

In July, as part of my "Climate Denial Crock of the Week" video series,
(http://www.youtube.com/user/greenman3610) I published
a piece that criticized and parodied the work of well known climate denier Anthony Watts, and his "SurfaceStations.org" project.

On July 26, Watts made what I regard as an improper "DMCA" claim against the video, and
had it removed from YouTube.
The DMCA, (Digital Millenium Copyright Act), was originally intended to
protect copyright owners from internet abuse, but
has been occasionally used improperly, notoriously by authoritarian religious groups and cults,
in order to restrain criticism and free speech on the internet.

After some investigation of related cases and obtaining additional opinions as to relevant
copyright law, I confirmed my original belief that my videos in no way violate copyright law,
especially in light of the principles of critical review, parody, and transformational use of

In accordance with established YouTube guidelines, I filed
a "counternotice", affirming that, "under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a
result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled."

As of today, I have received the following confirmation from YouTube:

"In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we've completed
processing your counter-notification regarding your video:


This content has been restored and your account will not be penalized."

I wish to extend my sincerest gratitude to YouTube, to all those who advised and supported me in this effort, and most especially, to Anthony
Watts and SurfaceStations.org, for providing invaluable exposure to my
video series, and greatly increasing my traffic and visibility.
