Please excuse the missing videos

UPDATE 1/22/09: VIDEOS ARE NOW BACK UP.

Due to a mistaken copyright infringement claim from Marvel to Youtube, my account was suspended, and therefore any embedded video from my Youtube account will not show up on TheAnimationBlog.com

This is a misunderstanding on Marvel’s part and I’m trying to get the account back up as soon as possible. All the Marvel videos we have posted (Hulk Vs. in specific) have been sent to us by a public relations firm representing Marvel — so as you all can see, this was a misunderstanding on Marvel’s part and they should have never filed at Copyright Infringement claim with Youtube.

So I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and hopefully it will get fixed soon.
