Hello everybody and welcome on this thursday’s video. It’s always a pleasure to talk to all of you. But unfortunately this time it a video we woud not have liked to do. This video is concerning the removing of our two Eiffel Tower illegal ascension and debriefing You were a lot to remark about that and to send us messages and we were a little bit ripped, we know that guys but we were compeled to do that guys and today we will explain why… So you see this iron thing behind ? In 2015 we climbed it illegaly without any authorization and we had some justice problems at the moment and after that we thought it was done. And few time ago we received an e-mail, like a new contact. Yes that’s it, I will explain because i managed this story and I received a message from a guy that we can called “Didier”,, it’s not his real name but we call him Didier and he’s telling me that he’s the lawyer of the “SETE” (Eiffel Tower Exploitation Society) who represents the interests of the Eiffel Tower. We talk… and he says clearly that Eiffel Tower can’t tolerate videos who were done illegaly concerning ascensions as well from us but also from James Kingston and the others guys of the team who climbed are in the same situation and says that we have to delete the videos and I’m telling him that it’s difficult for us because we have been already judged about this infraction Then these videos are important for us, they are mythics and are the base of our collective history So we discussed with Paul and tried to propose them some solutions And even write alerts messages on the videos, explanations… But for them it was the videos the problems. And we never had response. Then for 2 or 3 months no news… Was the time of the conspiracy maybe… Their vengeance… So we are back from our expedition At the Adele’s Planchard montain and then we received a registered letter at home and he said that from this date We have 7 days to remove the videos, if not judicial proceedings will be engaged. So now we have the list of all the pursuits and there’s also a problem with copyrights for the lights of Eiffel Tower and for endangering others and he insists about the prescription time of 6 years for this kind of situation so we are still able to be juged… But that we will talk later about it because the exploitation of the image of the Eiffel Tower it’s when we do it for a commercial exploitation in any case, and it was what I understood when I called them 2 years ago. I’m a little bit surprised of the situation and with this letter we received only 1 day before the 7 days deadline of the videos removal and we have to take a decision. very quick and we have no time and no ressources to begin long judiciary pursuits and Eiffel’s Tower ressources are strong and they have power to lobby. so we think, let’s play prudence and remove the videos as asked but, nevertheless, let’s call them to know more about it and see forward about the blame made to us are to show some security vulnerabilities who are from 2015 and to incitate people to remake our exploit while we stil had a big part in the video about prevention of doing this and explaining what happened after it was something dangerous to do seriously and that the issue of the judgment depends only of the judge so we considered by our side… You see this debrief is in fact that we show how it finished, and, in a way in contrary to the original video of 2015 we explained our judicial consequences for this so, somewhere, it could dissuade people but especially we really incitate to not reproduce our performance because it was a very long work to prepare and realize it was an unique performance at one point and never an invitation to reproduce what we’ve done safely. All the Eiffel Tower security was rebuilt after that Some glasses were put on each side and I’m not saying that there’s a link with our ascension, but all the security systems is completely different now and nobody can know based on our videos to repeat the operation. By this side we found the behaviour was somewhat limited. But the thing to re consider the removing of the videos is maybe that we don t have the absolue certitude to be rejudged another time and to engage another battle. But what i’m wondering is that in France we can’t be judged twice for the same things We’ve been judged at first for intrusion in an historical monument I didn’t think that 3 years after we can get one more shot on our ass (french expression) for endangering others, things that is a little far-fetched we are surprised but we can’t take the risk for next thursday’s videos and I think it’s a risk that you don’t want from us as well Exactly, there’s was this famous “Didier” and he has a partner, she is probably lawyer too but I don’t remeber his exact position we can called her “Patricia”, yes “Patricia the partner” So, these two persons we had on the phone we called them to get more details about the letter we received Are you sure that there’s no solutions ? We sent you a lot of propositions about modifications on our videos some alternatives facts and then refusals after refusals and the things that it really bother to me was the speaking behaviour especially Patricia’s speaking who was a little bit patronizing there was no humanity with her. What I liked from the first judgemnt with judge, we were guilty, certainly, but she understood that there was a real sporting approach it was a kid dream and something unique that could happen only once in a life and she understood the artistic approach and from this we didnt have more than what we get. And with Patricia no way, it’s no the law is like that, I’m a machine and I’m processing the law. But Clément, she’s working for his client It’s sure that they have to apply the law and what we’done is forbidden… I would like to talk about this conversation because at the end of this conversation we had a nice exemple of what could happened with the videos we didnt want to take the risk that YouTube delete the videos by himself and eventually doing something bad for our channel after this famous letter. And so I called back the lawyer office to tell them that the videos were deleted and so there’s no necessity to begin legal procedures so I’m on the phone with this famous Patricia and, unfortunately, Didier were not available this day I have the impression that you’re telling a joke ! I give her all the arguments that I explained and she said that it’s like that and not otherwise I explained to her that we will record this explication video on our channel by transparency with them and it was not because a revenge we will make a video to explain to people. It’s important to explain to you guys. She repeats a lot of times, be carefull about what you’re saying you could be attacked for defamation It’s the reason why we changed the names One more time all we’re talking about is a personnal feeling, these persons are probably not like that It’s our view, we have the right to get our own view It’s the base of freedom of expression on You Tube. Exactly, and so we talk… The discussion is goin nowhere, “it’s ok you deleted videos as we asked you” And at the end this person hang up the phone, but hang up badly the conversation is not cut and i’m always listening what’s happening at the lawyer office and it’s a little bit uncomfortable Patricia : “Thank you for your call, good bye Monsieur” Clément : “Thanks to you Good bye” “He’s serious ?” “Without means, my ass yes !” “The things are the lawyer fees” “But he’s winning” “He had asked a lawyer and he said…” “That the video is illegal…” “If he’s just deleting the videos with a formal notice…” “He said I won’t win with that” “And endangering others…” “Ask YouTube now to delete videos…” “Shit !” (hang up) I can’t think so competant people and probably very well paid could hang up badly and explain their strategy to come because on this extract we understand that they will ask YouTube to delete videos And so it’s a little bit patronizing with you. Personally it was a little bit funny that they forgot to hang up and talking freely about our case. It was astounding Was funny. This is a little bit the conclusion of this video and I know that it was not a very funny when a video is removing We first Hope that we will all together could grieve these videos And write others because there’s a lot to make ! It’s too bad because these 2 videos were the most iconic for Hit The Road channel’s The debrief was the most viewed video with 1 million viewers before dying It was a magnificent ascension, and an extraordinary adventure […] hey no, don’t do this, ok ? And this is the end for this thursday’s video… You and us are very sad about extinction of these two videos about the Eiffel Tower But this kind of climbing is forbidden and illegal and fortunately or unfortunately there’s laws to respect in this country. It costs to realise our dreams… this is the conclusion… So guys if you want to support our creations and dream to make bigger and craziest things it’s on Tipee No matter about your donation, you can dowload each month photographies from our expeditions And think to put a BIG BLUE THUMB on the video and a comment about what you think about this story This is the end of this video… RIP So guys let’s meet here next thursday, train well, feel well, Ciao !
