    That's the question your lawyer needs to ask YouTube. Since using brief clips of Rush is clearly covered by Fair Use, if YouTube takes down the vids anyway, that is tantamount to YouTube failing to enforce its own rights as a "safe harbor" under DMCA.

    So here's what your lawyer needs to ask YouTube: why are you surrendering your own legal rights, rather than enforcing them?

    It worked for Potholer54 in his dispute with Amenakin (Google it).
