That Time National Geographic Claimed Copyright On NASA Videos

Keith's note: Over the past several days media giants such as CNBC and National Geographic have been filing copyright takedown requests on YouTube - which have been granted - against people using their own material that they generated from the launch of DEMO-2 as well as NASA public domain material. National Geographic took this a step further by having NASA's own video taken down, asserting that National Geographic had the copyright on NASA's own footage. This has been going on for days. It is baffling that NASA PAO ever allowed this to happen - much less to continue as long as it has. At a time when global chaos has people focused on other things NASA needs every single amplifier of the value of space exploration that they can get.
