Default How Does Viacom claim EVERYTHING!!

I was going to watch some Human Giant vids. I went to their website, and clicked the link to one of their videos. It linked to youtube, which then told me the video had been taken down due to copyright claims by Viacom. How can Viacom claim something like this? HumanGiant puts their own money into making it, and they then show it on youtube, and Viacom claims it? wtf is that BS.

Looks like a well made show. Great production values. Doesn't look cheap at all like I expected it to be lol

lol, yea, a lot of people don't really like the humor though. Sort of random skits. I really like it though. I watched a lot of their videos, completely random, but so funny, lol.

I hate Viacom they own most of the popular stations you see on tv and they constantly sue youtube for copyright infringement on anything as small as a 15 second family guy clip.
