Metal Star Accused Of Infringing His Own Copyrights

YouTube's race to remove copyrighted material from the streaming video site has proven to be a bit too aggressive as a notable metal star has called out the service for removing material that he posted himself claiming he was infringing on himself.

Last week Devin Townshend notified fans of the actions by Youtube via another notable website Twitter. On the 18th, Townsend Tweeted: "HA! Got a copyright infringement warning from YouTube for posting my own sh*t... AWESOME!!!! Suck it! =]"

A short time later he Tweeted: "Wow! The music industry is at war with itself! Who will win? ...stay tuned for more wacky adventures! woopwoopwoop! =] "

The following day he Tweeted: "Youtube is pulling lots of my own stuff for illegal content. So freaking weird. Get over yourself, money isn't everything."
