Monday Morning Bummer or, a Viacomedy of Errors

Popularity has it's price, I guess. I have joined the league of bloggers and other YouTube enthusiasts who have received the dreaded e-mail:

Dear Member:

This is to notify you that we have removed or disabled access to the following material as a result of a third-party notification by Viacom claiming that this material is infringing:

Naked Brothers Band "If There Was a Place to Hide" (FULL):

Ironically, they pulled the plug on the long video but left the short one.
