BBC Apologise To Billy!

 

 2008-01-13 14:14:20

Thanks to some diligent reporting by local SE London journalists Mark Chandler (The Newshopper) and Lawrence Conway (South London Press/Mercury), the BBC have issues an apology for having two video clips of Billy's 'Songs of Praise' ensemble removed from YouTube.

The Billy Office was contacted and spoken to by the charming Robert Brosgill on the telephone and also sent the following email:


Dear Mr Jenkins,

Further to our conversation a moment ago, I can confirm that the BBC takes no issue with your use of the name "Songs of Praise" for your band.

As I explained, the BBC actively seeks to protect the copyright in its programmes and routinely flags copyright infringing content on Youtube and other such sites for takedown by the website administrators.

It recently came to the BBC's attention that a great deal of footage from the BBC's "Songs of Praise" programme is being made available on Youtube in breach of copyright.

It appears that, in dealing with the high volume of BBC "Songs of Praise" content on Youtube, your legitimate content may have been accidentally flagged for removal. I can assure you that the BBC makes every effort to ensure that only infringing content is flagged and there was no intention to remove your legitimate clips.

With kind regards.

Yours sincerely

Robert Brosgill
Solicitor
BBC Litigation & Intellectual Property Department

The clips are now available to view, listen and enjoy on Youtube via www.billyjenkins.com/links
