The campaign by Metaquotes Software to eradicate those videos has apparently stepped up a bit. Seems everyone just caves in. I wonder what to would cost to sue any sites that left them up...and risk losing. The video showing how to edit the candle size can be done by ANY user on ANY mt4 platform that's available from ANY broker offering it. How is that a copyright claim?

Given the amount of MT4 related advertising I'm sure that some trading forums are just looking for a convenient excuse to delete the videos.

Still it must have made for an unhappy holiday period at Metatrader dashing around the internet looking for these videos. Maybe ECN will ruin their new year as well by posting them all again on Friday evening. Any volunteers for double time this weekend?

i believe because that part of the meta software isn't in the public domain they can indeed claim copyright and get vids of it removed. though there would appear to be a good argument for fair use, due to the nature of the expose and the apparent clampdown of free speech. the vid hosting sites are being spineless, and you can understand why.

I could be wrong but I believe it's fairly easy to get a legal valid for use registered copy of metatrader manager within 24-48 hours for no cost. Since it's no trading week for me I might have a go at it...depends how much info I want to share to sign up.

ok but then what will you do? if you make a vid and upload it here it'll likely get deleted?

and wont you have to be a recognised company to download it? they may be unlikely to just dish it out on a free download to any old tom, dick or harry?

True, so it's not much use. Would only prove a point about public domain. I have a better idea but I'm not keen on getting banned if/when it gets pulled. Besides, I'm not looking to cause headaches for t2w. I like it here.

i just looked, and its not exactly easy looking to get hold of, its not like it's got a "click here to download" button, a company fieldx in the form is mandatory, i suppose you could try it on, wackyfx ltd lol
