Some corporate scam artists are speciously claiming copyright violation as a vehicle to use non-infringing (such as this one) video/news clips posted on Youtube as a billboard for THEIR ads, which they're remunerated for. They'll stoop to anything including claiming a one-legged homeless busker is violating their copyright by singing John Lennon's IMAGINE. It's be analogous to a photojournalist catching a police response to a homicide live then having to pull the footage from the air because some car radio driving by in the background is playing Hotel California. It's, of course, absurd...and an abuse of the laws Congress enacted to protect genuine copyright infringement claims. Fair Use (such as this clip or the example cited) does not violate copyright. Our US Supreme Court has made this much clear.
As a courtesy to the producer and acknowledgment of the abuse of the digital Millennium Copyright Act's take-down notice provision, do NOT buy any product advertised superimposed on this clip. Discourage the abuse.
