Shock! Google/YouTube Helps Shut Down Channel Mocking Keith Olbermann

I guess this is what they mean by "do no harm".

A short time later the entire Olbermann Watch channel was permanently deleted.

We have not seen the DMCA filing from NBC Universal but the only complaint we received from them was regarding an old interview of Keith Olbermann by Caron Daly. These videos have been online for years now, the Olbermann Watch channel had well over 1 million views and over 1,000 subscribers. It is also worth noting that some nearly identical videos of Keith Olbermann are still online now; a quick search shows over 11,000 videos when you search for "Olbermann" on YouTube.

We have responded to YouTube's Copyright department asking to see a copy of the DMCA complaint and contacted our lawyer.

Consider this Round One.
