Over 4,000 YouTube videos and accounts were removed due to fake DMCA copyright infringement notices being sent in to YouTube.
The 4,000 videos and accounts were critical of the Church of Scientology, and were taken down due to a copyright claim by "American Rights Counsel LLC." YouTube users responded with DMCA counter-notices.
Most of the videos were reinstated about 24 hours after the fake DMCA notices were realized by Youtube. Mark Bunker, a critical Scientology critic, also had his YouTube account suspended for a second time, the last being in June of 2008.
