An anti-shooting video made by the League Against Cruel Sports has been removed from YouTube and Vimeo after BASC accused the organisation of breach of copyright.
BASC reported the League Against Cruel Sports to both internet sites because it had included a clip from BASC’s own film “An Introduction to Pheasant Shooting”.
BASC heard today that both YouTube and Vimeo, the two main film-hosting web channels, have removed the League’s anti-shooting video, Gunsmoke and Mirrors, while the copyright issue is resolved.
A BASC spokesman said: "Gunsmoke and Mirrors is littered with factual inaccuracies and misrepresents shooting. Now the film has been taken down this propaganda cannot be used to mislead politicians and the media."
