A YouTube channel featuring TV classics like “The Andy Griffith Show” is run by a lowdown limb creation income off other people’s work … according to CBS.
In a lawsuit, a network says 8thManDVD.com — run by Edward Heldman III — has racked adult over 2.5 million views, by posting 16 episodes of a dear sitcom. CBS alerted YouTube to passage it in a blossom and mislay a vids, that it did. Temporarily.
Heldman fought behind and, according to docs, got a episodes reposted by claiming they were in a open domain. CBS says open domain doesn’t matter since a shows enclose copyrighted characters like Deputy Barney Fife, Sheriff Andy and of march … Opie.
Heldman insists he’s in a transparent since he “remastered” a episodes — that he believes creates them new and accessible for his use. He also claims CBS is perplexing to abuse copyright law.
CBS is suing to get a vids taken down for good, and to squeeze Heldman’s increase from them.
