There is a "humanitarian crisis" in NHS hospitals in England, the British Red Cross has said.

The Don could use one of those hats to make sure that muskrat doesn't escape from his head.

Liberal You Tube in action

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/01/...s-channel.html

Legal Insurrection founder and publisher and Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson voiced his anger and astonishment at the channel’s removal. “It’s very frustrating, it’s very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself,” he told FoxNews.com.

WIKILEAKS PROPOSES DATABASE OF VERIFIED TWITTER USERS' INFO, SPARKS UPROAR

In an email, Jacobson said that he never received notice of the claims prior to the channel's removal on Thursday. On Friday the publisher received notification from YouTube that the copyright claims were filed by the Modern Languages Association (MLA) based on audio posted of a recent MLA vote on a resolution to boycott Israeli universities. The boycott resolution at the MLA Delegate Assembly failed.

One might have thought it was something inflammatory....but we see why it was taken down.
The same people who scream for free speech are the first...always the first....to deny it to others. been that way for 50 some years here.

Since YouTube is owned by a private company they can do as they please. If the material is that important they could raise money and rent internet space and broadcast it themselves.
Saying that for a long time YouTube was the biggest pirate music and video distributers around, letting people just post any music and videos they pleased and putting ads on them to make money.

Just to clarify, String....I don't support the notion of boycotting any university and probably don't agree with 50 percent of what that now banned outfit believes in. I never visited it and probably never would have even if it was allowed to exist on YT. I have no problem with YT....just that their 'anything goes' approach only applies to some viewpoints.
Of course, you're correct about proprietary rights. It is a privately owned company.
