    Here's something interesting

    This video has been muted because apparently uploading a video which has the national anthem without permission is copyright infringement. This is not the only video of Bernie's speech in Seattle that has been muted or taken down because of this.
    This is absolutely ridiculous IMO.
    Thoughts?

    Someone with a bone to pick probably lodged a complaint.

    YouTube's music copyright crap is pretty stupid and really easy to game.

    You can agree or disagree with what he has to say, but I think everyone can agree that that is absolutely pants on head retarded. I thought the national anthem is public domain. How can someone even claim to have a copyright on that? It's as ludicrous as staking a claim on Happy Birthday.

    The Star Spangled Banner is absolutely 100% public domain (anything written before 1923 is, necessarily).
