Default Zuffa Kills Gracie YouTube Page

From MiddleEasy.com:

First Lookoutawhale, and now Ryron and Rener Gracie. Damn.
It appears that ZUFFA (along with Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation) has reported GracieAcademy's YouTube account for multiple cases of copyright infringement, forcing the company to terminate their YouTube account. I'm sure all of you woke up today with the expectation that the Gracie brothers would have an hour-long breakdown of Chan Sung Jung's twister victory over Leonard Garcia this past week, but alas not even two black-belts can defend ZUFFA attorneys' submission.
Here's what one is presented with if they try to visit Gracie Academy's YouTube page. Props to Evan C for the find.

YouTube account GracieAcademy has been terminated because we received multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement from claimants including:
  • Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation
  • ZUFFA, LLC

It's really no different than pirating music, movies, etc. Yes, they should do it without the video of the fight. It's only fair, Zuffa has paid to copyright everything.

My first YouTube account had Zuffa report me twice. I had one of the most popular Brock Lesnar videos on YT, I even gave full credit by linking to where I found the video (somewhere on www.ufc.com), but still got cut. I was surprised about that. TMZ was another one although I gave them credit.

My brain. That's one intellectual property that hasn't yet been copyrighted, rearnaked choke.
