Downfall's Downfall

Okay, I've written about the "Downfall meme" a lot on this blog. (Here is one example.) Now, apparently, YouTube takedowns by the owners of the intellectual property rights to this German film about the last days of Adolph Hitler are now on the verge of forbidding the hundreds of subtitled parodies on the web.

Check out Slate magazine's coverage of "YouTube vs. Der F├╝hrer: Why you shouldn't blame the video site for removing all of those Hitler videos" for more about the latest developments in attempts to police these remixes in the face of their even greater proliferation.
