Nyan Cat Video in Legal Limbo

YouTube took the original Nyan Cat video down, and in its place there is a notice that "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by PRguitarman." However, PRguitarman says he did not file a copyright claim. He is having trouble straightening this out.
Funny how someone can easily make a complaint but to actually prove it the owner has to jump through all of these hoops. FUN TIMES! But seriously, there is a lot of work involved here and it's pretty stressful.

Meanwhile, people are flagging my videos on Youtube and giving me death threats just like upstanding Internet citizens usually do. Good job.

Anyway, I've been working at this for about two or three hours and have done the most I can for now. Saraj00n, Daniwell, and Youtube have been contacted and I am just now waiting for each of their replies so we can work on getting the video back up.

The cat is still available in the original .gif format at his site. Link -via The Daily What

Seriously? 0_o With everything really bad happening in the world, THIS is what some people are freaking out over? A cartoon?! Thank you Neatorama and all you Youtube netwits out there. I needed a good laugh. BTW, I like Nyan cat. Very cute. Can't go wrong with cats and rainbows. :D
