Worst pro sports league ever. Do they not realize that filing copyright complaints against fans is counter productive to marketing, fan interest, etc? The videos they upload themselves are so terrible.
It's ridiculous. How is a youtube canucks highlight channel subtracting any significant revenue from the canucks or the nhl? Don't they realize that it is basically free advertising for their product reaching hundreds of thousands of fans and potential fans?
The NHL wants control over who shows their content. People can't find what their looking for on youtube -> they go to NHL.com instead to get it. He has no right and NHL has no obligation to let him use their content
