Thumbs down YouTube told to remove all World Cup Videos by the ICC

Just saw this article on Cricinfo (or Crapinfo as some people refer to it)...

ICC targets YouTube World Cup clips

March 26, 2007

The ICC has ordered YouTube, the online video-sharing website, to remove World Cup clips claiming copyright infringement. The ICC and the rights holder to the event, the Global Cricket Corporation, took the action after hundreds of World Cup clips appeared on the site.

"We are here to protect the commercial broadcast rights for the ICC and GCC and there is an issue here," Christopher Stokes, the chief executive of online rights protection agency NetResult, which represents the ICC, told Media Guardian.

"In general there is a dilemma for rights holders in that they want people to enjoy the event but also have stringent contracts with TV broadcasters and with mobile rights holders. In today's world, broadcasters buy highlights as well as live coverage and mobile rights means clips. There is an obligation to protect them."

YouTube was reported to have agreed to the request and the clips were gradually being removed from the site. However, one of the problems faced is that as fast as the offending clips are withdrawn, more are uploaded. A search this morning showed only a handful of clips from the Bangladesh v India game, and yet a few hours later it was dozens

I think it's obscure that the ICC are depriving millions around the world of watching footage of the grandest spectacle of the game we all love...Aren't the ICC meant to be promoting Cricket around the world and not restricting the viewing of it?

What are your thoughts?

You Tube are not selling the clips, so ICC can give them authority to broadcust the videos.
