Google has announced that it will cover the legal fees for protecting the Fair use Rights of youTube video Creators. Google started this New Fair Use Protection Program by refusing to remove few youtubes videos that received DMCA take down notices from copyright owners.

Google's this new initiative is part of a growing effort to fight back against DMCA abuse.

I wonder if this is more an attempt to curb the misuse of DMCA takedowns by individuals with no real claim other than they want a video taken down. i.e. Try to scare off people from filing false claims because someone said mean things about them in a video.
