Hitler “Downfall” Remixes Removed From YouTube

Constantin DMCA

Constantin Film, the German film company behind the 2004 film “The Downfall: Hitler and the End of the Third Reich” (“Der Untergang”) has sent DMCA takedown notices to YouTube forcing the removal all of the popular Hitler Downfall remix meme videos.

UPDATE 1: Both EFF and Brad Templeton give their take on the whole downfall of the “Downfall” remixes. Brad’s “Hitler Ordres a DMCA Takedown” is still available on Vimeo.

UPDATE 2: Here’s Hitler’s reaction to the videos being removed.
