If you are one of those YouTube users who put up a Shining Force video and had it unceremoniously yanked by YouTube at the request of Sega, then you'll be happy to read this story. Sega says via this Sega forum post that it will no longer engage in such anti-community activities any longer (thanks to Andrew Eisen for sending this one in).
"Thank you to all of our fans for waiting while we worked hard to get this issue solved," wrote Sega of America - Associate Brand Manager RubyEclipse. "While SEGA may need to remove videos in rare cases, we’re happy to confirm that there are no further plans to remove Shining Force videos uploaded to Youtube by users living in North American and European territories. Additionally, if you live in these territories and your video was removed, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can look into it for you."
"SEGA believes strongly in our fans and we apologize for any inconvenience. You all are what keep us going – thank you!"
So if you are one of the many victims of Sega's ill-conceived campaign of terror against Shining Force videos on YouTube, now you can rest easy and have that video restored.
