MTI has taken action to have all home videos of people\'s children, friends and family performing in Seussical Jr. removed from YouTube due to copyright claims. None of these videos contained the entirety of the musical, and many were medley style compilations, created for the sole purpose of sharing their home videos of these performances with their friends and family. These videos are in no way compromising or damaging to MTI, their business profits or their performance licensing rights. Tell teachers and school districts that if families can\'t video tape their children\'s performances they should put a ban on MTI (Music Theatre International, Inc.) shows and choose a different theater company to work with.


I video taped my sister\'s performance of Suessical Jr. with the director\'s permission. I cut it up into 2 short videos and placed them on YouTube for her to have something to show her friends and our family. Nearly a year later MTI contacted YouTube to have ALL my YouTube accounts permanently removed. It is very sad to lose all of the videos that parents, students and teachers have posted. And I don\'t think it\'s fair to \"crack down\" on these students that put so much work into their performances and simply want to share their personal achievements.
