Now that our old friend Gordon Klingenschmitt is running for office in Colorado, he’s apparently trying to get videos removed from Youtube that show him saying idiotic, dishonest things. Right Wing Watch, which puts up those videos, reports on several copyright claims he’s filed to get videos removed over the last week:
In the last few days, three of our Klingenschmitt videos have been removed and anyone who tries to watch them simply sees a message saying “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by GJK, Inc.”…
We’ve run into this issue with “Dr. Chaps” a few times before, like when we posted a video of him saying that Newt Gingrich was under the influence of a demonic voice when he said that Republicans would have to face up to the fact that the public attitude toward gay marriage was changing. When we posted that video, “Dr. Chaps” issued a press release claiming defamation and copyright violations and had our video removed from YouTube…We filed a counter-claim with YouTube asserting that our video was protected by Fair Use and eventually the video was restored. We have done the same with the three videos that Klingenschmitt has currently had removed and we expect the same result.
The only thing “Dr. Chaps” is doing by having these videos removed is calling attention to his efforts to cover up his well-documented record of making outrageous statements.
Yep. Keep it up, Gordy.
