Patriots "cleaning up" YouTube?

Check out the post below about Drunk Marines.  Notice the top video is missing?  Check out the message on YouTube:

"Wasted Drunk Mari..."
This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated due to multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement from claimants including:
Sorry about that.

How about that? HBO claims copyrights over a poor-quality home made video?  I don't think so.  And who are the "multiple third-parties" also making the same claim?

Then, the video is still available here:

and here:

But in this case it has been "flagged as inappropriate" by "the community" and you have to "verify" that you are over 18 years old by signing on to watch it.

Methinks that all this is some lame attempt to clean-up the eggs on the corporate face of the USMC.

The Saker

PS: does anybody know if this video had any consequences for these "proud Marines"?
