Yutube ABC scamp

Today in the news milk cartons will be replaced by lamp shades.

A while ago you may remember the "ABC" taking off my Chasers War tribute video by myself andJoseph Waters.
So i contacted the "ABC" and they got my video put back on. Now would you believe this, the "ABC" was actually a 15 year old kid that FOOLED YOUTUBE.
Heres the read-through:
Want a video removed from YouTube? Send along a fake takedown notice pretending to be from the copyright holder. At least, it’s a prank that worked for a 15 year old from Perth, Australia, who sent a signed form to YouTube pretending to be from the Australian Broadcasting Company. The form requested the takedown of hundreds of clips from “The Chaser’s War on Everything”.

YouTube not only reacted, but sent warnings to all the uploaders saying their accounts would be deleted if they persisted
The REAL ABC said:
Everyone does dumb stuff when they are 15. But what was of concern to us was the fact that YouTube was sending copyright infringement notices to people who have been uploading Chaser clips to YouTube, threatening to shut down their access to YouTube if they persist that’s what was worrying to us.

Here you can find them talking about:
