Malkin + EFF + UMG + YouTUBE = DMCA fight

What do you get when you mix one crazy rightwing pundit, an online rights organization, a music company and YouTube?  One gigantic copyright mess mess: YouTube Caught In Malkin, EFF, UMG Crossfire:
Between Malkin and UMG is a hard enough spot to be in, but add the EFF into the melee and you've got yourself a first class nightmare. The EFF called UMG's actions an "improper attempt to silence her online criticism of one of its artists."

Hat tip: The Trademark blog.
