(Newser) – The day of reckoning has arrived for one of the Internet's most enduring memes. The German movie studio behind the film Downfall has demanded that YouTube remove clips from the production subtitled by users to make it seem as if Hitler is ranting about anything from Michael Jackson's death to the iPhone 4G leak. Downfall's director says he considers the parodies a compliment, but Constantin Film's lawyers are taking a harder line, Mashable notes.
