Youtube attacking my right to free speech now

So very interesting that they chose the America's Most Wanted segment on the Border Agents to attack as "copyright infringement". I plan to fight this with the Fair Use Doctrine but just wanted to give all youtubers a heads up if you hit a nerve, they will come after you.

Oh and by the way.. there are TONS of the SAME SEGMENT from AMW on the Border Agents STILL up on YouTube. So if 20th Century Fox really had a complaint, don't you think they would go after ALL the youtubers who posted this?

I believe it is someone posing as 20th Century Fox and I will get to the bottom of it and expose them. In the mean time - you can see the video by searching in youtube for "America's Most Wanted" - you will find several on the Compean/Ramos segment posted.

You can see the pulled video here
