[CB] Sony Demands Removal of Open-Source Indie Short 'Sintel' From YouTube

Sony Pictures has demanded the removal of the CGI short film Sintel from YouTube due to a claim of copyright infringement. One small problem: they don’t actually own anything in the film.

Sintel, a film by Colin Levy which has been featured before on Cartoon Brew, was created by the Blender Foundation, the non-profit organization which promotes the free, open source 3D software Blender. The crowdfunded short was made using entirely original materials, and was licensed as Creative Commons Attribution 3.0, which means that anyone can freely share the movie.

It's amazing how big companies can get away with this in the name of copyright infringement. From what I've read, Sony has been lately using the film, which came out in 2010, to showcase their latest 4k screens, so it's now somehow considered to be owned by Sony and was removed from the Blender Foundation's YouTube account accordingly. Ridiculous.

Here is the actual movie, all made in Blender.

We need a way to throw out frivolous lawsuits before they waste a courts time. Like maybe a lawyer can be disbarred for bringing too many frivolous lawsuits or the people who want them brought get fined. Something.

I hope this will spark a discussion about companies abusing their power and flagging whichever videos they want. There should be repercussions for the companies that wrongfully flag videos, just like how users are punished with account bans and removals.

This is the most retarded thing sony have ever done.
Claiming ownership one something they don't even own.
I wish the foundation had the funds to sue their ass for fraud and wrongful claim of rights.

I wonder if sintel ever agreed to anything with Sony. there could be more behind the scenes that we don't known about. not trying to defend Sony either, if they really are abusing their power, I'm glad they company is going under.

About time someone goes after them for this. They have been removing/claiming random videos for years. I can't count the number of indie bands/random product reviews that I've tried to go back to only to find out Sony had nabbed them. None of them had any music nor any content that Sony owned.

You actually can be disbarred for too many frivoulous lawsuits. Remember the anti-video game lawyer, Jack Thompson from a fear years back? You don't see his lawsuits anymore because he was disbarred.

Also, the Streisand Effect is in full force here.
