April 20th is Hitler's birthday and once again he doesn't have a whole lot to celebrate about.
Constantin claims that the parody vids (where people change the subtitles on this German language film) is a violation of their copyright on the movie Downfall which they own.
Apparently, Constantin was selling DVD copies of Downfall hand over fist until people realized that they could get a three minute clip of the film with altered subtitles for free. This obviously had a huge impact on their business practices. Just imagine, why would you pay to buy the Blu-Ray disc of Star Wars when you can watch a two minute re-edited Star Wars parody clip online for free!?
Looks like you lose again, Hitler!
