Les Guignols de l'info fan account on YouTube called " Generation Guignols " is getting shut down by Canal+ tomorrow. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn-R1gBlR3hu8-bzF7Y2dLg So enjoy the videos while you still can. #LesGuignols #LesGuignolsdelinfo #GenerationGuignols #JeSuisGuignols Similar thing happened with a Spitting Image fan account on YouTube called The Complete Spitting Image when ITV ( and or BritBox ) had it shut down.
Both political satire puppet television shows were Leftist leaning. Like Les Guignols and Spitting Image, both are uploading clips on their official social media. However even though they own the original master footage and films, Fandom uses saved recordings if recorded from a VCR or DVD Recorder or Internet capture or just found. Generation Guignols is a collective of fans who gathered footage together for this account to be shared. Attacking fans with Copyright Infringement, ID and Matching ( Especially when fans are not profiting off of this and it is literally being shown for educational / historic purposes, isn't that one of the purposes of what the internet should be used for ? The information age ? Remember ? ) is a violation of fair use because Fandom and fan accounts help preserve for history / educational purposes when copyright owners refuse to supply the demand. Vincent Bolloré bought Canal+, fired the writers of Les Guignols de l'info and the original producer in 2015 and they were replaced from 2015 - 2018. Canal+ / Vincent Bolloré didn't care that Les Guignols de l'info still had a strong fanbase and perhaps stronger than the surviving Spitting Image fanbase maybe.
