Wow, that would suck. I hate people who do shit like that, and screw it over for everyone else.
But I think I get a bit confused, am I seducing or being seduced?

YouTube is censored since it was bought by Google, and that's about many months ago. Before YouTube was managed by a couple of friends, but now that it's run by Google it's obvious that many people will put complains to delete some videos, and so YouTube has to censore them -in some cases- or otherwise, lose money.

The censorship has already started.
I use YouTube exclusively for watching music videos, and I've noticed that certain videos will periodically disappear due to "copyright infringement". Of course, they are promptly re-uploaded, but it is irritating because it ruins my "favourites" list.  :roll:

Oh no censored further then.... -I didnt catch the whole news story, only saw the preview. . . Maybe now they are going to pre-censor instead of afterwards via complaints. God hope not.

Dunno what all the fuss is about really.
The quality's usually crap on youtube anyway.
But censoring isn't a terrible idea.
It's just a shame the youtube folks actually allow this sort of thing on in the first place.
I remember a while ago a Mexican drug cartel "offed" a guy & put it on youtube, so you have to ask yourself, "do we need to have it censored.
In a way, this forum is censored, but we term it "moderated". It's still censorship, but no-one complains about it. In fact it's done very well here.
Cheers

I agree that this site is censored well also Steve,  :smth023

 Iam affraid youtube will end up like television, Very little reality

- Thats what i envision happening.
 To control and silence the people, To only let us see what they want us to, and nothing more or less.   Thats my fear.

I like the way it works now, the public complain and something is removed.

I have only recently discovered UTUBE and other web-based sites.

As a parent, I think that it is a great idea to censor, or at least have certain age limits from what I have seen is available. There are some UTUBE links that lead to adult sites, content and violence that I do not personally even want to see. I am not an advocate for blackouts on social information, opinions, etc.. but even though I have high security for certain content, it still gets through.
 Parents should be aware of their children and what that have access to. Again this depends on knowing and talking to your child/children, involving yourself and checking up on them if they are on the internet!

Well said.... and I agree with you....
There goes my life...

Not at all!! I would be pretty safe in saying that your movies don't involve drug sniffing, violence or other "censorship" issues? You will still be free to express yourself. Sometimes, the minority spoil it for the rest of us, so censorship must be implemented. Just read the above quote...says it beautifully!! And you don't feel you are being censored here, do you? No..keep creating.... :smth023

 hey CV ..I encourage you full-heartedly in your creative work!! U know that..  :smth023

 It's the R-rated  stuff that I think , rather , insist that be censored.. I have parental controls on my PC..( may have mentioned before), but I also celebrate freedom of speech AND artistic expression.. I think there is a difference here.. your life is not over.. just beginning!
 Freedom of speech and artistic expression, does not necessarily need to be censored. We live in a basically democratic world.. where anything is possible. Throughout the world media is controlled by governments, millionares, corporations. It will not change. the little voice is the voice worth listening to, not necessarily the absurd or contraversial voice, that needs to 'rock' the boat..
 Basically what I mean is that..
 1. our children should be safe from pornography.
 2. there SHOULD be freedom of speech and personal beliefs.
 3. artistic expression should NOT be suppressed.

 there are many facts considered in censoring.. and they relate mainly to - content and things like violence and viewers ratings, eg., PG, M+15, R etc..

This is the way of the world nowadays, anything that is grrrreat HAS to be taken down....  :smth100 :smth100
It makes ZERO sense too because it is so selective.  :(
I mean they take down all of the videos from The Cure In Orange for copywrite issues because it was a movie recording, but they don't touch the Trilogy videos at all.
                                popcorn??WTF?? popcorn
Saw The Cure twice, once in High School on The Prayer Tour, and again when they came to William & Mary College on the Wish tour.... BEST live band EVER!!
