Wow, another vote for this being absurd.

If an artist wants to make money off of a song, his time is better spent going after commercial users who is willing and have money to spend.

This reminds me of the days when our son was in elementary school. The annual fundraiser was a play written by, and acted by, the parents. It was always a take off of something, with a lot of music from recent, and not so recent, movies and TV shows. We always kidded about being sued for copyright violations. Never happened, but this does make you wonder.
Most memorable event: one year it was a take off on Wizard of Oz. One night we had a special guest. Mickey Carroll, one of the original Munchkin's!! He was in his seventy's, but still very engaging. I hope the little note and autograph is still on the wall, backstage, for all to remember.

I suppose if they get no response from the copyright holder, they take it down to protect themselves.

I need to look at this more - is it obvious to the viewer that the copyright holder has approved the video? If so, then I won;t feel any guilt watching these, or worry so much that they will be taken down in the future.

I don't think you are following this. The copyright violation is an automatic detection system. No one is doing anything absurd (though the results might seem absurd), youtube really needs to default to the conservative side of kicking out marginal things to protect themselves. What else can they do?

It was purely an automated response, proving again that computers do what we tell them to do not what we want them to do.
I'm still not sure I'm following this. Are you saying that once the station posted their broadcast (with the podcast excerpt in it), that the youtube system saw the podcast as the property of the station, and then the original podcast got flagged?

Seems a bit out there, from what I know. I've heard that youtube has created 'fingerprints' of copyrighted material, and use that to flag stuff.That is what that 'Shazam' app was all about - they were actually using that to test the 'finfgerprint' idea. But are they creating fingerprints for every news broadcast out there - possibly, just seems outside what they are looking for to me.
