The Michael Moore-produced documentary “Planet of the Humans” has been pulled from YouTube due to a copyright claim by a third party. The move was denounced by writer-director Jeff Gibbs as a blatant act of censorship.
It was taken down following a copyright claim over four seconds of footage contained in the film. It comes 37 minutes into the documentary, in a sequence titled “How Solar Panels & Wind Turbines Are Made.”
The documentary, which has drawn criticism from environmental groups for its harsh assessment of the efficacy of solar and wind energy, has garnered 8.3 million views since its release on YouTube on April 21.
