Censorship

+ - More DMCA Censorship at Yahoo!->

Submitted by

Thomas Hawk writes "Once again a Yahoo user has found themselves on the short end of the DMCA stick. Video blogger Loren Feldman recently found that his video mocking (read parody) the Village People and blogger Shel Israel was removed from the Yahoo service after Scorpio Music served Yahoo with a DMCA takedown notice. The video in question contained a very brief fair use parody snippet of the Village People song YMCA as performed by a puppet. What's more, Yahoo threatened Feldman with the termination of all of his Yahoo services including the revocation of his Yahoo ID."
