Or maybe AVG was just trying to prove how broken YouTube's copyright filters are. I'm trying to give AVG the benefit of the doubt here just out of courtesy of having a kickass Free AV.

Scratch that, I thought it was Avast for some silly reason. For the love of god allow us to edit comments on the TomsGuide domain the same as TomsHardware so we can correct ourselves when we make a complete ass out of ourselves :facepalm:

Your comment was still valid as AVG also has a good free anti-virus suite available.

The copyright laws in this country are seriously screwed up if this could happen... (at least they took down something that no one cares about though)

It's not as good as good as it used to be. It's one of the more bloated and less effective AV programs available now.

Probably some kid posing as AVG to get videos taken down, they did that with ABC(Australian broadcasting) shows like the Chaser.

It has happened before, false copyright claims (and I'm saying someone else did it, not AVG)... YouTube's standard policy in these cases seems to be to shoot first and ask questions later.

well now AVG just got some cool points from me. :)

Keep the free Anti-Virus software coming. thanks to AVG and other free good Anti-Virus software i haven't been tied down into paying for overbloated Anti-Virus software like Norton and McaFee in over a decade. now

I can't believe how many people still think AVG is actually good. I've heard that the newest Norton is even better than AVG now.

Mind you, WinRAR has retained a similar popularity when there is already a far better alternative (7zip, which is also free to boot)
