Yes, World is Mine has been removed on the request of SEGA, even SeyrenLK starts to be pissed off, that's the third time they do this. Lucky he is, his account could have been suspended with Youtube's three strikes policy.
With that, I repost ZK comment which was so appropriate and made a few hours before the idiots in SEGA's IP department started their scorched earth policy
Do they want the Sapporo debacle to repeat itself again? And trust me, by having online viewing, its only going to promote and widen your target audience. Not only for those who watched it live, but also for those who lives thousands miles away. Plus, you will release DVD/BD of the concert in the end, and what guaranty that you have that those materials won't be distributed online too?
Embrace the fans for god sake! Make the leaked rips as your promotional tools. Yes, I do agree that maybe its unfair to you, but really, remember that Vocaloid franchise is all about the fans. Compromise!
And yes SEGA, that outdated thinking of yours is...well outdated!
Seriously the PR department of SEGA should contain the idiots who do not get the facts and still consider their fans and customers like bad people because they actually share this content, creating more fans. Don't these people read the studies that shows one after the other that "piracy" is INCREASING sales, and that YoutTube is the best promotional support for arts ever devised ?
I'm not that surprised, SEGA is a software company that certainly has not yet completely grasped the concept of Vocaloid and in big companies it's difficult and slow to change a mindset. But seriously guys if you want to enter the movement learn and change.
