    Hi all, just been notified that my videos have been removed from YouTube as was copywrite to Racing UK.
    What i had on was Kauto stars races taken from channel 4, which i e-mailed to ask for permission which was granted by Tanya Stevenson (well the e-mail was replied by her), At The Races footage, and a ‘made up’ video of again channel 4 footage and at the races. Never Racing UK footage. So i was wondering does Racing UK have a right to claim copywrite to the channel 4 clips even though i was granted permission to use, i guess they must have links to channel 4 somehow other than just sponsorship. However the AtTheRaces footage has thrown me. Surely RUK have no link to that??

    Thanks, Kirstey

    I must admit I am surprised that C4 gave you permission.

    Ultimately the copyright remains with the courses and it is they who assign the media rights.

    Strictly speaking I would say all racing clips on YouTube are technically in breach of copyright.

    Racing UK coverage is produced by the same production company as Channel 4 racing – Highflyer.

    Any use would be breaching copyright, it’s just the bigger companies that cop for it first – hence Youtube.

    Be careful though as it is sometimes easier to go after the smaller company for a breach as it will scare people off – eg Oink.

    It has always baffled me as to why these companies would object to footage being posted on a site like you-tube, even if they did hold the copyright. Its not like a poor quality 3" x 3" picture of a horse running around a field can be bootlegged and sold on to fund terrorism, is it.

    It just seems like some sort of pathetic corporate power trip.

    Difference is though mate that Mininova (best internet site since the RP :wink: ) doesn’t host the content – the users do with Mininova simply storing the torrent paths.

    Of course there is bound to come a time when they are indicted for something else but until then …

    Yes, i mean it’s hardly going to stop people from signing up to Racing UK. It’s not going to cost them anything as i doubt people sign up to it just to see replays of Kauto Star races. Ah well nothing can do about it. May take it further with the clip was granted permission from C4 as was just bit of fun with medley of pictures / clips and got the e-mail saying was fine to use what i had n it, and the attheraces footage, baffled as to why they would have copywrite to that. Will know for next time though! :P Will look for Mininova Thanks!

    The New Zealand Racing Board actually post their own feature races on Youtube…(http://www.youtube.com/user/nzracing).

    Why can’t the BHB do the same ?

    I agree they should

    It is afterall completely free and what better way is there of advertising racing as a sport?

    Getting videos of old races to watch, for many, was like pulling teeth before U-tube came along.They should be thankful it exisits.

    I thought that the racing picture came from Racetech as they have the cameras around the racecourses and they must own the copyright.

    You could always e-mail RUK,ATR,BBC,C4 and Clive Smith plus all the other owners,trainers,jockeys,commentators and people in the Grandstand and ask for their permission to be on YouTube.

    It is an odd thing for RUK to do as you would have thought they would have been happy to have the races online over the world so people can see UK races but what can you do.

    I’d suspect it has something to do with their ties to the Racing Post video library, and that that organ charges for viewing them. :roll:

    The 2008 Vodafone Derby has disappeared off the face of the YouTube earth.

    Shattered.

    It’s a shame. All about money :-( Not the amazing horses we are so lucky to have seen.
