The YouTube Team
I’m not the first person to notice this, but it seems way too easy for any copyright holder to take down any video on YouTube for two weeks just by filing a complaint.
Even worse, by filing three separate complaints, you can get someone else’s account suspended. If the Ventoux stage hadn’t been so sleepy, I might have tried putting up a third video from this years Tour—which might have gotten me kicked off the site.
If that doesn’t scream “potential for abuse”, I don’t know what does.
