Brave New Films sues talk show host Michael Savage for alleged improper DMCA takedown to YouTube

News: Video producer Brave News Films, represented by Tony Falzone at Stanford Center for Internet & Society and the Fair Use Project, has sued radio host Michael Savage for an alleged improper DMCA takedown of BNF’s video on YouTube that replayed about a minute of Savage’s rants allegedly about Muslims. YT took down the video after receiving a DMCA notice of alleged copyright infringement and even suspended BNF’s YouTube channel temporariliy. (The channel is back up.)

According to the LA Times
Savage’s producer said Savage was not responsible for the DMCA notice in the first place. (The notice is supposed to have the identity of the complainer, so it should be easy for YouTube to reveal who complained.)
