The Tyee on Telus’ Notice and Takedown Demands

The Tyee has a good article on Telus' use of the U.S. notice and takedown system to demand the takedown of videos over which they do not hold copyright.


  1. Takedowns
    I think sites are ‘immunized’ if they comply with a DMCA takedown as well, which makes them very likely to comply just for having received one.

  2. Hmmm, I saw the tapes, all five or six. I remenber TELUS using competitors adds (to mock them) and movie clips from Witness and Wayne’s World.

    I wonder if they ever paid the royalties on that material or informed the companies involved of the content use.

    The nice thing its taped and therefore can be proven conclusively.
