Hey would you be able to point me in the direction of who you talked to at Sony? I have an issue with one of my videos that I'm certain is a parody (I read the OP's post and I feel it falls right in line with that, plus I did write a 16 page paper a couple years ago for an honors college class about parody so I know more than just a random person on the street). I tried disputing it through YouTube's system, I laid out in detail the evidence I had that my video was a parody, and I still got denied so now I'm at the point where if I dispute it further they could sue me. And I'd be willing to go toe to toe with them but I couldn't even afford to and win let alone if I lost. So anyways, I tried emailing someone at Sony because that's who the artist is signed with and never got a response. Because I figured I may be able to talk to someone and get the video reinstated without worrying about them trying to destroy me.
