    Yesterday I uploaded the our idiot brother trailer and got a copyright strike from "The Weinstein Company"
    since when sharing a trailer can be a copyright violation ???
    I mean seriously do these production idiots know anything about viral marketing or anything about youtube??

    This never happened to me before..

    What do you mean by trailers "too"? In addition to films? I occasionally get content marked as copyrighted but it's not a "strike", they specifically say "content owned by so and so, no action needed".

    Presumably Content ID and revenue sharing don't apply with film trailers?

    e: I also just saw that Warner apparently is/was more pissy about copyright than Sony/UMG.
