hi, i wanted to record some footage of early level jedi consular gameplay, but when i uploaded it to youtube, the video was instantly taken down. i'm confused about this because iv'e seen a ton of videos up already. so why did mine get taken down (after i'd given recognition to bioware and stated that i, in no way, owned the product) but the others didnt? it's really frustrating.

New copyright laws have youtube and other sites paranoid. Unless what you post is completely original content that you created, then your video can be removed.
Anything that is done repetitively can be done by a computer. That is why right brained people will eventually rule the world.

i understand, but why was my video (specifically) taken down? after i gave full credit, isn't that enough?

Even before these new laws, just giving credit doesn't mean you have approval.

It was probably the music you put in it.

there was no music added to it though, or do you mean in-game music?

Did you commentate for the video? If not, then you need to. If you add commentary then it mostly falls under the Fair Use Act.
