Some youtube anonymous people also referred to two other companies, 'ContentFactory America, Inc', and "Media House Enterprises, Inc". They also calimed that the 'oschaper' account was involved in the takedown notices, and these companies, although I did not see anything saying how. I do know that accounts can be hijacked, but no one, has claimed that so far?

If the legitimacy of the claims has not been verified then why have the videos already been removed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.107.249.60 (talk) 14:05, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

A single DMCA notice cannot be used for multiple videos. Each request to remove a video must be submitted via seperate DMCA notices. This means that over 4000 individual DMCA had to have been submitted by American Rights Counsel LLC, and organization with no record of its existance in the United States or otherwise. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.186.56.126 (talk) 17:55, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

That may be the case on how it is supposed to be done. But we have what is called a rights group which does not exist, who files this claim. The fact that they don't exist should say a lot about the way they do things, as opposed to how they should be done. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 19:56, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
