Hasbro has "again" filed a DMCA against FiW

Wow seems the Hasbro DMCA train has been rolling full steam and making alot of stops recently. Well this time their cross hairs are on Friendship is Witchcraft... again. On Griffnilla's tumblr page the following was posted:

"Bad News
The Friendship is Witchcraft videos have been removed from YouTube by Hasbro, and this is after sending an appeal. I am sending another appeal right now. I don’t know what to say, other than I hope this works."

Upon our research all the episodes will now give you the following screen (tested from the USA if you find this works in your country let us now by commenting) 

Again we have attempted to reach out to Hasbro for a comment but unless a non Brony friendly website contacts them we have a better chance of finding a portal to Equestria.

Thanks to our readers we now know the following countries listed at the bottom are not effected. So far it seems to be just blocked in the US but we'll keep testing with your help and let you guys know!
Correction: 1–7 work from Germany, only 2 and 7 from Canada.
United Kingdom (thanks to @docservine)

  1. I am downloading all of FiW from the Netherlands right now, it still works from here, though I don't know for how long.
