I had a video online over at The Daily Card Trick. Jerry Sadowitz wrote me an email wishing that I remove the video, as it is material that he uses. I set the video to private so basically nobody could see it. Jerry Sadowitz seemed OK with that compromise. Now the video is removed due to a copyright claim by Jerry Sadowitz.
Here is the thing. It was me in the video, not Jerry. The material although based on his effect had alterations. By alterations I mean I changed the whole damn method. So basically nothing save the effect is by Jerry Sadowitz.
As much as I like the man, I do have trouble believing he can simply take down my content. Thoughts?
EDIT: OK I got things worked out, turns out this was a case of "weird" timing. Jerry filed the copyright complaint against my video, before contacting me. But I got the information from YouTube after both of us had reached an agreement. It took him a while to get my email address. Within ten day my video should be back. But I am going to respect his wishes and make the video unavailable to almost everyone.
