The version of Beyond the West Horizon
on Youtube was a pirated copy, probably from a ripped DVD
sold at the Hiscock museum on the isle of Wight by the Hiscock's niece who owns the film as part of the Hiscock estate. It is not a free film. Is a British copyrighted film with an owner. TheSailingChannel has a distribution agreement with the film's owner and paid for the film restoration
and professional scanning to HD at the British Motor
museum, the goto restorer of classic
films by the BBC.
We asked Youtube to take down the pirated copy to protect the interests of the owner and ourselves.
We see your comments on Youtube and have replied to them and others with the same complaint. Please recognize that just become someone pirates a copyrighted film, be it BTWH or Gone With The Wind
, they are stealing from the rightful owners.
