Finally, a small victory in our battle against CNN and their abuse of the DMCA take down procedures.
Today we received the following message from YouTube:
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we’ve completed processing your counter-notification regarding your video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd2tg8gxCDU .

The YouTube Team
Below is the clip that CNN fraudulently forced YouTube to take down, in a vain attempt to silence us.
We also want to thank YouTubers Fearblocke and themaskedanalyst for their support, as well as the hundreds of others who chose to upload the clip into their accounts in defiance of CNN’s attempt to silence embarrassing criticism.
The only questions left are…what now? What comes next?
UPDATE: We knew we would leave someone out. We cannot go without thanking the good folks at Hot Air! for everything they did to bring exposure to our clip. You all have our deepest gratitude.
UPDATE II: We also need to thank NewsBusters for their tremendous efforts to shine light on this story.
