I was rather shocked when Youtube took that video down without warning, but that they deleted all of my personal films - of which I am the copyright holder. They also deleted the the account the next day. As a person who makes his living in the motion picture industry, I felt my video fell under Canadian Fair Use policy. I still feel it does.
The video could also have fallen under professional use - YouTube may have been required to pay the actors and/or Warner Brothers each time the video was shown.

The BBC has a special agreement with YouTube, you may have to sign a similar distribution agreement.
