If so, does this mean the legacy media will no longer be able to obtain and purchase footage of events they haven’t covered themselves ?
And that the judiciary, assuming it wants to, won’t be able to use said footage against the perpetrators of those “violent acts” ? In Paris, Ferguson or anywhere ?…
Glorification ? Is YouTube going to censor all the famous – and less famous – writers who’ve covered the topic ? Should we soon expect digital book burnings ? And what to make of future Mohamed Bouazizis ?
Is this humiliation ? By which criteria does YouTube determine whether it was deliberate ? Does “someone” include public figures ? If so, is YouTube rehabilitating the concept of ‘crime of lèse-majesté’ ? Would YouTube “strike” an ordinary citizen for what it deems acceptable coming from a late-show host ?
