Taylor Swift dancing video: Fair use?

One of this year's students, Charlie, an exchange student from China, created an interesting dancing video. He sent it to me and I asked him if he was ok if I uploaded it to YouTube. He agreed. One of the reasons I did upload the video was that I was interested in how YouTube would deal with fair use.

Within 5 minutes after uploading I received a claim, and the audio was surpressed. I immediatly rebuttted with a fair use argument. I am curious what the lawyers representing Taylor Swift's reaction will be. If they watch the video they would realize the video does no damage to Taylor whatsoever.

 I expect that I will succeed in getting the audio back on, and if not, I have an interesting copyright experience.

And maybe Charlie gets his spot in the dancing team of Taylor, as he applies for at the end of the video...

Is it just the audio that was suppressed? I'm in another country (France) where the whole video is blocked

Thanks for noticing. Indeed, it was not before. UMG denied my rebut, but that does not give them the right to block the whole video, the dancing is a creative action UMG has nothing to do with anyway.
