EA claimed this content as a part of the YouTube Content Identification programme. YouTube allows partners to review YouTube videos for content to which they own the rights. Partners may use our automated video/audio matching system to identify their content, or they may manually review videos.

And they need some fancy program to work that out?! Its a trailer that was shown in a tv/online gamming show, I just took the trailer out from the rest of the segement because not everyone has the paitence to wait. What’s more, as a trailer its already advertising, you don’t need more.

Besides, EA don’t mind the videos the majority of the C&C community post.

Now, lets see how long before it flags the HM3 video I extracted from GameTrailers.com, or the C&C RA3 Empire of the Rising Sun Trailer from gamespot.com, or the RA3 Remix trailer from the offical site or even the King Oni survalence footage I uploaded after the offical site’s one went MIA. And is it going to flag the BBC behind the scenes at EALA video? (If you were outside the UK you probably couln’t watch on iPlayer) Or even the Dr Who Christmas Special 2008 trailer? (iPlayer again)

Given the option I’d have saved them the time and told them it had content from company X or Y. Oh wait, I did. Its in the description or tags for the video.

Incidentally, this silly program is known to eat up and delete any videos of the current UK Top Gear series.
