Silicon Alley gets to the bottom of who ordered all the Zeppelin footage to be taken off YouTube. It turns out a company in Brooklyn called Grayscale sent out notices to Youtube in error.
“We acted without authorization from the band or Warner Music Group. Unfortunately, an automated system mistakenly attributed the removal of the content to a copyright claim by Warner Music Group. That was inaccurate. We have informed YouTube of the error and we regret any inconvenience this may have caused.”
I give Grayscale credit for fessing up to the error and then putting all the videos back up. Nobody’s perfect.
