Hi, there is a video on youtube which has been up for a very long time- (over 2 years) However within the past few months, the audio has been removed by youtube. The caption says "This video contains an audio track that has not been authorized by WMG. The audio has been disabled."
Now I know what you are all probably thinking- "what kind of video is it", however its not a bad one at all- infact is actually a video of a police officer memorial. This clip was made by the producers of a tv show called "rookies", and was presented to the fallen officers mom after his funeral.
So, what would have to be done in order for youtube to reinstate the audio?
Here is a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reNBozmuSEs
Though the mom was not the original poster of the video, she does have all legal copyrights to it, and she does wish it to be reinstated.
She is not very good with computers so I am assisting her with this matter- just wondering how to get it restored?
Allthough youtube gives you a link to the copywrite page which explains why things may be copywrited, they dont say how to get a page reinstated, if infact the video is leggit.
Any information is appreciated- once I have a solution noted I will froward it to her.
PS- I know if she uploads the original video, she could prove she has legal wrights to the clip, and it can be posted again but she doesnt want to upload it under her account because she wanted to keep the 2 years of discussions running still. If she posted it from her account, all previous comments that were written over the years would not show up on the new link, since it would be a "freshly uploaded video" and would start with 0 comments .
