I wanted to give everyone a heads up that YouTube is in the process of deleting my videos after a company which manages video rights for the NCAA put in a copyright claim. This just happened. I don't think I can do anything about it, either. For the time being, some videos may work. I don't know what, if any, next steps I can take, but I'll post an update in the near future.
Update 11/22 9 AM:
I'm going to look into my options, whether on YouTube or elsewhere, and post an update of some kind later today.
And to be clear, my account hasn't been banned. At least not yet. They deleted many, but not all, of the videos I've uploaded over the last 2 years. I won't be posting new videos to that account, but it's unclear if they'll decide to ban me if I don't delete the remaining videos.
Update 11/22 1 PM
I appreciate everyone who left comments on here, Twitter, and elsewhere. I haven't made a penny from these videos. Quite the opposite, actually. I do them because I love Northwestern athletics.
It could take a little while to see if I have any options regarding all of the videos that were removed. But in the meantime, I will say that there will be short-term solution for new videos. And hopefully that starts Saturday with a win over Michigan State. Whether or not the solution will be sustainable for a longer period of time remains to be seen, but just keep looking here for updates. I won't be uploading anything new to the YouTube account, though.
That's terrible! I love your vids and especially the fact that you put the WNUR guys on the audio. Keep us posted!
Sorry, meant WGN, not WNUR.
Is there no recourse form us? Can LTP get the word out to the community to try and do something? There must be some lawyers amongst the readership. Can the NCAA do something that benefits fans first for a change?
Thanks for this site and all you have done. I literally watch these all year round and always looked forward to new installments.
Good luck, and let me add to the thank yous. Your labor of love is much appreciated!
Hey man, wanted to add my voice to all the thanks you've been getting. You really do an awesome service to NU fans everywhere.
They don't like you video highlights because you do such a great job. Adding Senior Gato from WGN was a great idea also.
Thanks for all of your superb videoes. Go Cats!
Hey, will you be doing/posting a Meineke Car Care Bowl highlight on a different site? Would love to see it!
Jason, there hasn't really been any movement and I don't want to do anything for a "minor" clip that could jeopardize things. I'd imagine at some point I'll have it up, along with season highlights, but I don't know when.
I just can't believe it! Some companies obviously have nothing better to do with their time. We are all so very grateful for you posting these great videos. They have truly meant a lot me and so many loyal NU Wildcats fans.......
