I didn't record the slo-mo replay which is where everyone in the room realized what happened, apparently it was a much better reaction. I was just so upset that one of my favorite fighters had been beaten by the same guy twice, I just wanted to shut the camera off and drink heavily. I had the same feelings when he beat rich the second time but I hadn't been watching the sport long enough to get as emotionally involved with rich as I did andy.

They have to have explicit written permission to use footage that is not their own, from the copyright holder, or the owner/creator of the video.

I would not bother suing UFC for this promo video because it doesn't really have mega views, and probably didn't generate much after Youtube has taken their cut of the ad revenue (which is 45%).

Glad you got in touch with their legal, because you can get at least something out of it. If they don't respond with anything, I would claim the video (the part that includes your footage), and then Youtube will issue a Content ID claim on it, which would transfer all revenue generated from the video to you, while the video would still remain public (viewable to all).

A copyright takedown would be a perfect riposte for how stringent the UFC is about their own takedowns, but they really wouldn't learn a lesson and it wouldn't change or soften their stance on removing their UFC footage from Youtube. It sucks because there are some very great video creators out there, like 'looknotawhale', if you guys remember that AWESOME Mike Tyson Punch-Out creation of the Anderson Silva vs. Weidman fight, complete with Usher singing away Silva's dizzy stars. It got taken down because of the UFC
Anything you post on youtube gives copyright to youtube. Anybody can use the footage with the permission of youtube.

Love how the UFC can just take other peoples videos and use them to make money to sell their event but if someone takes a small UFC clip and makes NO money from it they have your channel taken down

It wasn't the UFC. They contracted the job out. The contractors were the ones that just ripped stuff off Youtube instead of doing some actual work.
