YouTube banned by Russian court


www.guardian.co.uk

Russia’s blogosphere reacted with anger today after a regional court banned YouTube because it carried a single video containing “extremist” content.

The court in Komsomolsk-on-Amur in Khabarovsk region in the Russian far east ordered Rosnet, a local internet provider, to block YouTube as well as three online libraries and a website that archives deleted web pages.

The regional ban was made because YouTube hosted Russia For Russians, an ultra-nationalist video which was added to the justice ministry’s federal list of banned extremist materials after a separate court decision in S

This is amazing to say the least folks. Youtube has been a useful tool of the new world order in the past and also LOVED my millions. This is an interesting decision on Russia's part.

I do not truely think the reasons Russia is giving are the TRUE reasons that Russia has banned the video. Still this is new and I am sire more info will come out after the dust settles

This is dumb though and shows the court has no brains or knowledge of how the Internet works.

Basically you can get that video and host it on any one of thousands of websites, many of them variations of the "Tube" style.

Why didn't they ban Google Video or LiveLeaks or other websites similar to that?

Oh yeah because you would have to UNPLUG THE WHOLE NET eventually!!

Sigh....why are people in positions of power so clueless these days??

Oh well, I guess thats a good thing. Idiots will never be able to stay in power for very long. Thankfully.

Oh and I bet that a higher court will quickly overturn this ruling. Just watch.

There is just no way this makes business sense or anything. Too many powerful influences are going to come in and apply pressure to reverse this decision.

Oh and all those angry screaming kids will also speed up the overturning of this.

This is what I think they are going to do to enforce control on the net. No one will be allowed to post or surf anonymously. A key or license of some sort, that you will have to pay for will be used to tax us and keep better track of our net usage.

Heck, expect time on the net type charging.

That is where I see it going.

Don't know how good this information is but...

Exaggerated Reports Of Russian YouTube Ban


A court in the Far East city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur in Russia's Khabarovsk region said YouTube had allowed extremist videos to be posted, Pravda reported. It only only provides to a local provider, however.


And some more information.......

Russian court orders provider to ban YouTube


Russian internet provider Rosnet has refused to ban access to five websites including YouTube, as instructed by a Russian court.

A court in the far eastern city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur, which is the only place the order applies, told Rosnet to limit access to the websites on the grounds they express extreme views, but the internet provider has appealed against the ruling.


And here is a list of countries that have banned YouTube...


Russia joins a growing list of governments who have blocked access to the video hosting site, including China, Brazil, Indonesia, Iran, Morocco, Pakistan, Tunisia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates. YouTube material has also been censored in the U.S. and U.K.

I'm not sure what exactly it means by banned - because I am in one of those countries, and I can access youtube np - but I have not tried uploading.

Same here.

The list is bogus, and probably the story is all an overreacting spin.

I have seen similar court decisions in my country, yes. But they end up nowhere, as it is an impossible ordeal.

I guess is just like muzzleflash said.

Peace

PS.: Brazil can and does upload tons of videos daily.
