I think a better method for news is not to rush right out and post the details, until they all come in. I’m only saying that as this is the 4th time I’ve edited this. Basic story is that rumors started to fly around noon time today that pony videos were being taken down. I dug around and someone gave me a link, which gave me the “not available” screen on youtube. A back search of google revealed that it was Episode 1 from MenloMarseilles’s youtube channel. Menlo also had written on the channel that a C&D from youtube was handed down on August 18th, but nothing has been confirmed if its actually Hasbro or just a massive troll roaming around.
Then someone asked the MLP Facebook page “I got a very important question for you – I have faith in you
guys, so you hope you got a good explanation, but why are you removing videos from YT?”
This is somewhat cryptic in nature, doesn’t exactly say it was Hasbro but they are aware. The fact they say “posted without proper permission” seems to say that yes, it is Hasbro. EqD and even myself here has called it confirmed, but I’m backtracking and waiting for more news before we officially confirm its Hasbro.
If it is, I’ll repeat the most common phrase of today, “good way to shoot yourself in the hoof Hasbro”. Otherwise for now, we wait.
There has also been rumor that PMVs and such have been taken down, I have no source for this at the moment, but if its true, you might want to grab a downloader and snag your favorites.
