"Thunderbolt" (1947) (Part 2 of 5)
Director: William Wyler, John Sturges
Production Company: Carl Krueger Production
Introduced by James Stewart

Filmed in 1944 and early 1945 but edited only in 1947, this 45 minutes well preserved and almost forgotten documentary (by the great William Wyler) is about the P-47 Thunderbolt fighter bomber and its use in missions over Italy. In the prologue outstanding shots showing various placements of 1944 late model automatic color movie-cameras on board of the planes.

Quoting from the Google Support Forum:

The so called Craze Productions has been filing as a "dormant company", a company that is not trading, ever since their annual return for 2005. According to the public records from Companies House in London, they are still filing as a dormant company and their head offices have been a series of residential addresses. It also seems a bit strange that a company that paints itself as a "multi million dollar digital music production company" with an exclusive content catalogue of 1000s of items, has listed capital assets of £1 and uses a dormant companies return filing service to act as its secretary for a fee of £80 a year. "Craze Productions Limited" is the only registered company related to Craze Productions or Craze Digital and there are no registered trademarks on "Craze Digital", "Craze Productions", "Craze Digital Films" "Craze TV" or "Online Movies Box" in either the UK or US databases. This company even got thrown off wikipedia.

There have been some serious errors of the checks and balances that should be in place for all of the systems involved in this. Youtube really needs to have a long hard look and ask themselves how just anyone with a fancy website and the right PR skills could come along and convince Youtube that they are a major corporate copyright owner.

It's pretty clear to me that Craze Productions is using downright fraud to falsely claim copyrights to various media clips on youtube. Why are they allowed to do this? I have contacted Uri Levanon who seems to be the person in charge of Craze multiple times and he claims that it is youtube's copyright search algorithim that is responsible, not him. This is laughable since he has submitted claims ranging from video game clips to public domain movies as if he owns them. I have disputed his claims, contacted youtube, now I submit it here. When is somebody going to step in and do something about this cyberbully?
