Heads up to Lucasarts/EA (or moderators, please forward to whom it concerns)

I uploaded some SWTOR gameplay videos and i got the following:

Dear *****,

Your video may have content that is owned or licensed by Alloy Inc, but its still available on YouTube! In some cases, ads may appear next to it.

This claim is not penalizing your account status. Visit your Copyright Notice page for more details on the policy applied to your video.

Sincerely,
- The YouTube Team

I googled and found some other people complaining that "Alloy Inc" is claiming copyright on their SWTOR videos. What this means is that they are making prolly money on those videos, as well as discouraging others from uploading foootage.

So if EA/Lucasarts can look into it... because I dont think this company noone has heard about has rights to Star Wars or SWTOR footage?

lol. It will be interesting to see what Lucas Arts and EA for that matter do about this. Make no mistake, there will be a cease and desist letter if there hasn't been already from LA to Alloy Inc. I'd love to get ring side seat.

My money is on LA on this one.

Sounds to me someone is trolling youtube and the youtube people is not so smart.
Relax people, if you tube removes your video just sue them.

whats the betting that this "Alloy Inc" is a rabid 12 year old wow player wanting the videos down because he hates swtor?

I did a quick search on this, and Alloy Inc seems to be a marketing firm. Don't know if it's the right one, but it could make sense. If Alloy is contracted to market SWTOR, then they may have a claim on those videos.

Here is their Twitter feed.: https://twitter.com/alloydotcom
We should probably ALL ask them why they are illegally claiming copyrights.

Never heard of them so i doubt they could go up against lucas, ea or bioware. Mind you that said i dont think anyone could go up against lucas when it comes to copyright.
