This morning, while out flying, a hawk attacked my quadcopter, while flying along the Charles River, in Cambridge.
You can see the video — one of my most popular ever — on YouTube:
Of course, because it’s popular, it also means you can see it in a lot of other places — LiveLeak being a ‘primary’ source of the copyright infringement. (I expect this is LiveLeak’s fault as much as it is YouTube’s fault when random people upload copyrighted crap.) I did find that on LiveLeak, the video claimed to have over 9000 views, compared to the 2000 or so on YouTube.
I’m getting a quick lesson in what happens when you create really popular content: People steal it left and right. I’ve already filed two copyright claims against people who reuploaded to YouTube and put ads on it — I guess I’ll also be learning about YouTube’s copyright infringement resolution process.
In the mean time, if you want to check it out, I encourage you to share, like or watch on YouTube, rather than on one of the many clones out there There’s only one real thing!
