There are both philosophical and factual errors in the video. For example "transformative" is not one of the four fair use factors. There is also a lot of offensive innuendo and ad hominem attacks. In addition, the video over simplifies to an idiotic degree, the legal issues. It also ignores the practical issues: Does a pirate REALLY want to be clashing legal swords with a rights-owner? Acceding to a DMCA takedown notice is normally the smartest thing legally, ethically, and practically.
