Status: Rejected

I have been working on a 911 truth video for the past several months in support of National Days of Truth Action.

I recently completed said video and uploaded it to googlevideo.

There was no problem.

After watching the film I noticed a few glitches, so I deleted the film, corrected the mistakes and re-uploaded it.

Status: Rejected.

There is nothing in this video that violates current copyright law. With the exception of a small excerpt from a CBC news program on PNAC WHICH IS ALREADY PRESENT IN ITS ENTIRETY ON GOOGLE VIDEO AND YOUTUBE, every clip clearly falls within Fair Use. Indeed, nearly all of the footage was taken from films already available on Google Video and other source which deal directly with 911 truth. I'm stunned at this development.

Here's the email:

The Google Video Team

The video is fairly large -- tons of stuff packed into it -- came out at about 600 megs, so Google is basically my only choice unless someone else is willing to host it. It is twenty minutes long in total. If someone has some hosting space, please email me at so we can get this video online. I've worked my ass off on this and do not intend to have Google censor my efforts.

Thank you.

cracking down

clearly, there are movements happening these days to try to thwart the freedom of information offered by gootube.

I believe people like Mark Cuban, who made his billions by essentially being a forerunner for youtube, are working against this freedom by using lawsuits now.

In fact, speaking of "rejected" I wrote a blog about how the Magnolia/Loose Change Final Cut deal is probably just a ploy so that all future internet watching of LC will be pulled, to use the term lightly.

Reply back to them...

Ask them exactly why it was rejected...

They do respond and are quite helpful... I know from the BBC episode.

Keep it simple and to the point, hopefully you'll get to the bottom, they might ask you to confirm ownership, then they'll accept.

The first email they send is a standard email.

Good luck and best wishes sorting it out !!!

600 mb for 20 minutes ?

20 minutes and 600 Mb ? wow that is huge.
i recommend to first publish a version with lower quality.
resize to 320x240px - can be compressed down to 3Mb/minute
20 min * 3Mb = 60 Mb
you can use a lot of free webhosters for the first publishing.
try this software to encode:
even flash-encoding is possible.

best wishes
