Bogus Copyright Claims From Gordon Klingenschmitt Take Down Right Wing Watch YouTube Account
SUBMITTED BY Brian Tashman on Thursday, 11/7/2013 12:45 pm
Former chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, who calls himself “Dr. Chaps,” took down our YouTube account today by filing multiple challenges to our videos.

We have filed an appeal to YouTube and hope to get our channel restored shortly. If you would like to help, you can tweet @YouTube and urge them to expedite the review process.

...

Klingenschmitt has been filing complaints about our YouTube videos sincehe announced his bid for the Colorado legislature.

We are confident that our videos are protected under Fair Use, as in the cases of our past experiences with facing complaints. But this just goes to show the lengths that right-wing activists will go to conceal their extremist rhetoric.

Yeah, how dare Right Wing Watch show the world about Dr. Chaps using his own words...

4:51 PM PT: Now the Klingenfuhrer has sent out a press release bragging about taking down Right Wing Watch:

UPDATE: Klingenschmitt has now even issued a press release declaring victory over us:

David Takes Down Goliath -- Anti-Jesus Group Right Wing Watch Terminated by YouTube After Chaplain Files Copyright Infringement Claims

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2013 Christian Newswire -- The anti-Christian group Right Wing Watch (RWW) had their YouTube account terminated today after repeated violations of copyright infringement, theft, and allowing followers to issue death threats against a Christian chaplain.

Former Navy Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD, who is now a candidate for state representative in Colorado successfully persuaded YouTube to terminate the anti-Christian group's account, after RWW repeatedly stole, copied, and re-published without permission as many as 90 videos created and copyrighted by Chaplain's corporation, The Pray In Jesus Name Project.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
