[Updated below, with a response from the NHL.]
I happened upon something interesting last night: Madison Square Garden’s Youtube account, MSG Online, has been suspended. And from what I can tell, no videos have been posted to that account for about a week or so prior to this suspension.
It’s hard to say what’s going on—and my requests for an explanation from both MSG and the NHL have yet to provide an explanation—but it’s a curious situation.
First of all, an account suspension is how Youtube has previously responded when a copyright holder has erected a challenge to the content carried by one of its members. And secondly, the NHL itself has enforced their copyright claims with Youtube in the past.
So it makes me wonder: did the NHL claim a copyright violation by MSG and the New York Rangers, and request Youtube suspend their account?
