Is Google using YouTube to put one over on Samsung?

Google having a go at the most profitable and biggest Android manufacturer makes little sense.

The procedure is well documented, someone claims copyright, Google runs cursory checks and if passed pulls the video and sends an e-mail to the YouTube account holder, YouTube account holder replies saying this is wrong because... and if the reply looks credible Google puts the video up again.

Samsung USA started this off and the YouTube account holder argued that the complaint was invalid. Google didn't do anything different than it would have for a DMCA complaint for any other video.
