Scripps’s Bogus Copyright Claims Messes with NASA’s Legit YouTubes

YouTube users can request that videos be taken down if they infringe another’s copyright. When NASA posted a YouTube video of the Curiosity Rover landing on Mars, however, an infringer, Scripps, had it taken down for “copyright infringement.”

Scripps is apparently a repeat offender that took down another NASA video in April. It’s unclear whether Scripps has done this intentionally or if it’s an automated glitch, but it’s clear that YouTube needs to ramp up its copyright protection screening or come up with some clear ramifications for bogus copyright infringement reports.
