Copyright claim thwarts North Korea

ianare (1132971) writes "A propaganda video from the North Korean authorities has been removed from YouTube following a copyright claim by games maker Activision. It shows a space craft flying around the world and eventually over a city resembling New York. The buildings are then seen crumbling amid fires and missile attacks. However, the dramatic images were soon recognised as having been lifted from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. By Tuesday, the video had been blocked, with a message notifying users of Activision's complaint shown in its place."

It's OK for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to display New York as a burning pile, but when those same images are used by someone on the other side of the planet it's all: "Oh no, they are planning to blow us up! We must invade them!!!"
