A video of the wreck, shot by a fan and uploaded almost immediately to YouTube, detailed some of the carnage that swept across the stands and the race-goers that filled them. In a particularly intense moment, one person appeared to be pinned down by an errant wheel that flew off one of the wrecked cars.
But just as quickly as it was uploaded, the video was taken down from YouTube at Nascar’s request, citing copyright concerns.
The copyright to any video or photograph is owned by the person taking that video or photograph. This is clearly an abuse of DMCA. Here’s an update from the above linked to site with a restored link to the video in question.
Update 7:45 pm PT: Well would you look at that. Not more than a few hours later, the video in question has been unblocked, and is now viewable on YouTube user Tyler4DX’s page.
