Neil and Liam Finn video of Twilight at Taronga up on Youtube!

Just to let everyone know, that this video was taken down by Youtube, because of a copyright claim by PIAS, apparently the label the new CD "Lightsleeper" appears on, with a copyright strike against my Youtube account. Needless to say I'm disappointed. I'm merely a fan and thought this live video promotes the new album, 3000 viewers are 3000 potential buyers of the new album. The least they could have done is contact me with a request   to take it down, which I would have done without hesitation. Swinging the big legal hammer against fans, not a smart choice in my opinion. Anyway, take notice of this incident if you're inclined to post videos of this  act, and apply caution in your own interest.

I understand the disappointment, but labels have their own carefully considered plan to market and expose an album...so something like this is considered a threat to their plan (and thus the album’s success) more than a help. Is that true? Probably not, and I doubt Neil & Liam would object, but I can understand the label being cagey before the album comes out.  Hopefully when the dust settles they won’t be so litigious.

That is disappointing. Sadly most labels are short-sided in their thinking not realizing that a YouTube video is great marketing for the new album. And they can claim the video without taking it down and generate some ad revenue.
