15 year old teen dupes YouTube into deleting 200 videos

Posted on Tuesday, April 17 2007 @ 03:17:57 CEST by

It looks like some of YouTube's employees are doing sloppy work. The Inq reports that a 15-year old Australian teen managed to trick the video site into deleting 200 clips by pretending to represent ABC TV:
He signed a form claiming, "under penalty of perjury", that he represented the clips' copyright owners.

One clip included Charles Firth accosting Hillary Clinton which had been viewed more than 100,000 times before it was taken down.

ABC was a little surprised as it was quite happy that the clip was out there. It has a policy of trying to get as much of its content on the web to attract attention. When it got the form from YouTube it was a bit stunned that the film site had fallen for it.

The form was filled in by hand, listing "Loop Australia" as the company acting for the "Australian Broddcasting Corperation [sic]" and the business address was a hotmail account. Short of writing the complaint in crayon it is a bit difficult to see how the boy could have been more obvious.
