After 30,500 subscribers, it looks like our reign is over...Eff Wun have issued copyright strikes and taken down most of the videos.

Sorry guys.

Ugh, I hate when this sort of stuff happens, it's gotten really bad the past couple of years, so much footage gets lost.

Well, the company needs to recover revenue lost during this coronavirus somehow doesn't it? It is very sad.

They even removed videos they monetized themselves, so they lose out ultimately.

That's a real shame. But they completely removed them from your account or they are simply blocked?

Blocked many videos. There were some there I am SURE they don't own. Non-championship Aurora F1 races for example. As if they own those!?

Quite unbelievable, at this point I wonder if this might be related with the Formula 1 new streaming service. If they menaged to take pre-80s copyright it could be a mess. :crazy:

Maybe you can try to protest at least 1 of the Aurora F1 claims and see what Youtube answer is.

Glad to hear it.

I figured it may have been the copyright bot going haywire, or maybe they tried to get the bot to claim F1 videos so they could monetise them and accidentally ended up taking them all down instead or something like that.
