Save ATalkingBadger's YouTube Channel
YouTube has put my channel, ATalkingBadger, on death row. It has 7 days before it's taken down. Why you may ask? Because of a handful of videos that I recorded on my cell phone at the Classic West festival in Dodger Stadium and posted to YouTube. No where did it say that recording was prohibited. In fact, they allowed people to bring in their personal cameras. My account is nearly 6 years old and has been growing quickly to 430 subscribers. Recording and sharing these videos to the people who couldn't witness it in person is one of my favorite hobbies. Now, YouTube wants to take that away from me and my subscribers because of 3 strikes that were put on my account from a series of 5 videos from 1 concert. I've had videos like my Original Santana Reunion videos featured by big websites like Ultimate Classic Rock. These videos have brought joy and nostalgia to the many great people that have watched them. Please help me save my channel, ATalkingBadger, from extinction by signing this petition. Hopefully, YouTube can have a change of heart and let me continue to do what I love to do and what hundreds of thousands of people love to watch. Thank you, -ATalkingBadger
Petition to Tammy Baldwin, Ron Johnson, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
Pass US Copyright Legislation that Supports Creators, Competition, and Consumers
The United States' current copyright law is too much in the favor of copyright holders. This ends up hurting content creators on websites like YouTube, competitors to copyrighted products, and the average consumer. Content creators have to deal with rampant misuse of DMCA strikes that take down their videos and suppress criticism or review that is legal under fair use. Competitors have difficulty making products to compete with others as the creators of the original product can use the DMCA in their favor to prevent making similar products. The average consumer suffers too with having to purchase the same product multiple times to use it on different platforms and being required to deal with digital rights management and licensing that hurts users that lawfully purchase products and software. To end the woes of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, I am proposing that Congress reintroduces the Digital Millennium Consumer Rights Act into this session and gets it passed. This law will rein in the power held by large copyright holding companies and give it back to those it currently hurts like the average person. Copyright holders have a right to protect their property but US law is currently unfairly in their favor. By sending this petition to Wisconsin Senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson, I hope that they bipartisionally will support copyright law reform. Even if they decide to make new copyright law rather than simply reintroduce the DMCRA, that is fine, but action needs to be taken. DMCA reform is essential in a world ever-dependent on creative thinking and technology.

Put a stop to "This Video Is Not Available In Your Country" on YouTube
Yesterday I was trying find my song and I couldn't find the music video for it. So I went to playlists and I found the music video uploaded by Vevo, and I clicked on it, and it said "The uploader has not made this video available in your country" I was like really? This still exists? Are you freaking serious? The year is 2017 and I live in the United States! So I did my research and I found more videos blocked in the United States or just blocked worldwide and they were uploaded by Vevo! Also this isn't just Vevo other channels are doing this too. This is becoming annoying than a meme, I understand it's because of copyright, but come one: I know you can work something out, with the copyright holders. Recently the Germany blocked was lifted and now it's time for the rest of the world. And I know what you're thinking "just use a VPN or go on another website" well we shouldn't have to do that, YouTube is the top dog right now and having to go on another website or use a VPN just to listen to a song that can't be played on YouTube is bogus. I want this to be a thing of the past, we shouldn't have to put up with this anymore. So please sign this petition if you think "the uploader has not made this video available in your country" should come to a end.
Petition to Hallmark Channel
"Coincidence" Between 'Love On Ice' And 'Yuri On Ice'
I've recently seen a trailer for the movie 'Love On Ice' played by Hallmark. It is obvious that Hallmark is making a movie very similar to the hit anime, 'Yuri On Ice' created by Mitsurō Kubo. I've asked some other people in the fandom of 'Yuri On Ice' and they agree that indeed Hallmark could be copying from Mitsurō Kubo. I would appreciate an explanation for the "coincidence". It also so happens to be that this isn't the first time Hallmark has allegedly copied from a content creator. A man named 'Brad Wigor' filed a $7 million dollar lawsuit Hallmark Hall of Fame Prods and McGee Street Prods, while claiming that they stole his idea. It isn't fair for content creators who put time into creating something unique to have it be stolen. If we get enough signatures we can raise attention to this problem and hopefully convince Hallmark to give us an explanation, or more in that matter. Please help me by signing this to show how many people agree with me on this. Thank you.
