Facebook Removing Videos w/ Copyright Content

Facebook is removing videos with copyright content such as videos and background music.  Just this week, a video I created when my family and I cut down the xmas tree in 2008 (uploaded Dec. 29, 2008) got removed proactively due to the Feliz Navidad song I used for background music. I’ve seen YouTube do that before and some sites that just remove the audio track depending on what part of the video has the copyright material. You must acknowledge the message or file a counter if you think they are incorrect.

Here is a snapshot of the message I received when I logged into Facebook today (also received it via email):

Has this happened to you?  What do you think Facebook should do since I assume they are getting told by the music companies? Add a comment below. Thanks and have a great week.

YouTube Sharing Revised

YouTube revised there sharing to be more focused on sharing off-network (off the YouTube site) verse sharing among YouTube users. The top social networks they have listed are MySpace and Facebook which I assume they took a look at their embed code referrers to see where the majority of users were sharing the videos.
