Youtube: Inappropriate videos? Violation? Why?

Very often when I want to watch a video discussing any kind of conspiracy from the banks to the media to the politicians, Youtube claims it has been removed due to terms of service violations.

But which terms have been violated in this case? It's not copyright infringement, because these videos are uploaded by their own creators.

How about inappropriate content? Yeah, but what does that entail? When is a video inappropriate? When TPTB says so?

The following Youtube regulations are a little too vague, and raise some questions about what's tolerated and what not:

The quotes are taken from Youtube Community Guidelines



1. Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your video shows someone getting hurt, attacked or humiliated, don't post it.


In other words, you cannot upload videos with the bloody bits from historical wars as well as images of the holocaust and such that intend to educate the people in a more effective manner.

In schools in Germany kids have to watch a long video about the holocaust in 3rd or 4th grade, and Youtube can't show such content?




2. YouTube is not a shock site. Don't post disgusting videos of accidents, dead bodies and similar things.


Dead bodies are seen in the daily news on TV at all times of the day, and again give the people a better understanding of how much damage is being caused by wars and conflicts.




3. You may not like everything that you see. Some of the content here may offend you—if you find that it violates our Terms of Use, then click "Flag as Inappropriate" under the video you're watching to submit it for review by YouTube staff. If it doesn't, then just consider clicking something else—why waste time watching videos that you don't like?


And who will flag conspiracy videos? The CIA? FBI? Those hired by the ruling elite? Who? Is my next door neighbor so bothered by David Icke, Alex Jones, or videos such as 9/11 Coincidences that they decide to flag it as inappropriate? Is it going to distort their kids minds? I don't think they can be bothered flagging them.




4. The uploading of videos containing defamation, pornography, copyright violations, and material encouraging criminal conduct is prohibited by YouTube's terms of service. Accounts of registered users are called "channels.


Is discussing Obama, Bush, Gordon Brown and anyone else in a disapproving manner called defamation? I bet it's alright to talk bad about Saddam Hussein, Chavez, Fidel Castro, Ahmenijidad and such. Is the holocaust viewed as pornography?


According to Wikipedia:




Although YouTube's terms of service forbid the uploading of material likely to be considered inappropriate, YouTube is unable to screen every video that is uploaded. Controversial areas for videos have included Holocaust denial and the Hillsborough Disaster, in which 96 football fans from Liverpool were crushed to death in 1989, conspiracy theories and religion.


This quote is found on many websites and blogs. So apparently conspiracy theories are viewed as controversial on Youtube. The problem is that this also includes conspiracy facts not willing to be made public.

Here are some further rules for you to interpret:

According to (YouTube Terms of Service on WikiSummaries):




1. You will not submit falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage YouTube or any third party.

2. You will also not submit any material which is obscene, defamatory or otherwise objectionable, or unlawful.

3. YouTube will remove all content considered inappropriate or that violates somebody’s intellectual copyrights. Anybody who repeats such activity may also be denied access to YouTube.

Dude, you would make a good communist leader or something icky like that. Aren't you tired of twisting everything around? What do you make of this?

Maybe YouTube doesn't support the style you like: expletive-studded idiotic conspiracies based on patent lies.

There are tons of videos on Youtube that are overlooked, and besides the elite know that nothing's going to change their actions towards achieving their goals.

What I am referring to are videos such as the following:

Do you see David Icke? I don't.

But luckily other people re-post his videos anyway, so Youtube can't escape. For every video they remove, they will get at least 3 more of the same again.

Communist? hah Good one. I'd prefer to be a communist than a sheep though.

The censorship on online videos sites is growing at a staggering rate. I can't even find footage from videos games people have uploaded anymore on youtube. The big companies abuse the Digital Millennium laws every chance they get to have stuff removed. Nothing can be done about it they own the world.
