The most recent copyright claim pertains to a amateur video, shown here on another channel, filmed on a cellphone camera in Iran. This film does not appear to have any legitimate copyright associated with it, nor was there a designated owner of the material.
Freedom Messenger’s Youtube Channel remains the most watched Iranian protest channel, and has been the target of repeated false and malicious copyright claims with the intent of shutting down the channel and silencing the voice of the Iranian people.
The team at FM has fled a counter claim against the individual who reported our video, however we ask for your help in bringing awareness in regards to this issue.
Please ACT NOW and call on You Tube to stop act quickly to re-open our channel.

We strongly believe that the Freedom Messenger 20 Youtube channel was wrongfully deactivated based on a false claim of copyright infringement. This is now the fourth time that this channel has been accused of copyright claims maliciously. Due to the sensitive nature of the situation in the Middle East, YouTube should immediately restore the account and it should remain uninterrupted until a thorough investigation of copyright infringement can be determined. Please bring the channel up as soon as possible so we may continue spreading videos from Iran. There is no media in Iran and these videos are crucial to keep the Iranian people safe.
