According to Patterico, Perez Hilton had this video pulled from YouTube over a copyright claim, when it clearly is protected under Fair Use. Patterico is pretty passionate on this particular form of suppression of free speech:
It is clear that Hilton is embarrassed by what he said, and he is using a transparently frivolous copyright claim to try to squelch free speech about his ridiculous statements.I snagged a copy of the video from Patterico's link using savevid.com, so if it gets taken down from my account, I'll just upload it again.
I’m not standing for it.
If Hilton sends me a DMCA takedown notice, I’m going to fight it — and I may sue him. I have never seen a clearer example of fair use in my life. The video shows a mere three seconds of Hilton calling Prejean a “dumb bitch” (the word is bleeped out). Later, there is a one-second clip of the same video confined to a small box at the bottom right-hand portion of the screen, as the announcer intones: “They want to silence opposition.” He had no idea how right he was.
