Full details at There are 100 parodies of this downfall clip. The studio, Constantin Films, has ordered takedowns of some of them. In this clip, Hitler is the producer, and his lawyers tell him why he can't do a DMCA takedown and how the EFF would stop him. He desperately searches for other ways to protect his movie.

Produced by Brad Templeton, who is EFF chairman but releases this video on his own, the video educates about intellectual property issues and parodies the actions of the studio using the very clip they are trying to block.

The irony is that Constantin did a takedown of this video, and most of the others, on Apr 20 using Youtube's "Content ID" system. I filed a dispute and so it's back up again, for now....
