YouTube has recently begun removing videos that feature content from Constantin Films' 2004 film, Der Untergang ("Downfall"), despite the fact that many of these videos are parodies and thus constitute fair use of the material.
The Downfall, or Hitler-parody,
meme has been, arguably, a viral spat of publicity for Constantin Films
in the past few years. The meme takes a now-infamous scene from the
movie (the scene in which Hitler reacts to the news that Germany is
about to lose the war) and puts satirical subtitles over the action
(the movie is in German).
