Blender Foundation's Sintel video taken down on Youtube for copyright violation

Anonymous Coward writes | about 7 months ago


An anonymous reader writes "As if the automated take downs on Youtube weren't already bad enough, today fans of the popular open source 3D software Blender were greeted by a copyright take down notice for their third open movie, Sintel, despite it being released under a creative commons license: "This video contains content from Sony Pictures Movies & Shows, who has blocked it on copyright grounds." It is believed that the take down was a result of Sony Electronics adding Sintel to their official 4k demo pool."

Taking down someone else's past work right when they're trying to get funding for their next project? Absolutely abhorrent behavior by Sony. If you want to help the BF dogfood Blender on an actual feature film project, you can pledge on All of the film's production files will be open sourced after it's done :)
