The YouTube Takedown: Part Deux

The LA Times interviewed me last week regarding the YouTube takedown of my Star Wars on a Banjo video (see YouTube Is Out To Get Me). The article is on the web for your perusal here:

Following a link at the bottom of that article, I discovered the site of Ben Sheffner, who runs a blog called  Copyrights & Campaigns, and who helped clarify the specific aspects of the DMCA laws regarding this situation.  Thanks, Ben.

I remain optimistic that YouTube will unblock my video, but it will rely heavily upon what level Warner Music Group decides to micromanage counterclaims.
