Copyright Claims

YouTube and other online video sites sometimes feel like the wild west, but they still abide by copyright policies. In the case of commercials, the most frequent enforcers of copyright are usually the company who's advertising, the ad agency, or the record label for music used in the commercial.

One could argue that they should just leave the videos alone, because it's good publicity. While others might point out the legal complexities of having a commercial online.

Either way, it's apparent that some enforce their copyright more frequently than others. Here are some examples of videos from YouTube taken down or that have had the audio turned off. (If you're wondering, WMG is Warner Music Group).
