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.
I am starting to think the companies that do this have absolutely no idea how the internet works.
"Yes but we don't get paid for them to advertise"
"Do they get paid?"
"No. But we don't get paid!"
"Get it removed. Copyright."
So out to lunch.
The funny thing is the NHL does get paid for content that other people upload. Pretty much every hockey highlight is tagged as 'owned by the NHL' and they make all the money for all ads you see for that vid. They have the option to let the videos be watchable and make money off the ads or file copyright complaints and get the videos removed.
