Bob Dylan fans fight back

The battle for control of YouTube rages on

After dropping badly all last week to YouTube account suspensions, Bob Dylan fans went on the offensive against the copyright bots today.

At 7 am, Dylan videos on YouTube had dropped to a new low of 97,400.

We have been alerting the loyal both here and on Expecting Rain.

Thousands of people read YouTube suspends thousands of accounts and secretly went into overdrive.

By tonight they had restored 4,600 Bob Dylan videos to YouTube. We have no idea how many other music videos were rescued. Bob is a barometer of fan loyalty.

Keep up the fight. Don’t let the bots win.
