It is really horrible - and unbelievable!

The German investigative TV-porgram REPORT MAINZ reveals that YouTube has many videos containing illegal, inflammatory extremely right-wing/Nazi thougt and propaganda. The journalists even FLAGGED the material, because YouTube told them that if they are informed about -generally speaking- illegal material, they would ban it and delete it from the servers. However, even after the journalists reported those videos, which are often über-explicit and also commented by Nazi-supporters, YouTube did not take action.

Now the German public prosecuter's office will investigate into this issue - at least politicians want it and also the Central Council of Jews in Germany. The Central Council of Jews in Germany consider charging YouTube.

Here are two links. Unfortunately, the are only in German language.

.

However, if you are a member of YouTube, flag those videos. If you want to find them, type in "Landser", which is the name of an illegal and prohibited Nazi band.

It is so sad. And it is time to turn the tide and STAND UP, SPEAK UF against right-wing extremist thought of ALL SORTS!

Well, OK, but isn't the internet international, and what is prohibited in one country can be legal in another country, and even if youtube deletes these videos, at least for users from Germany, they will be again very soon on another website, so I don't see much sense in banning such videos from the internet.

But of course, in case some German youtube member uploaded them, the police should visit this person soon.

this issue is not so much about the location and the respective legal situation. it is about the fact that youtube does not delete those videos which are flagged as containing inflammatory contents.

Interesting.

According YouTube's terms of service, users may upload videos only with permission of the copyright holder and of the depicted persons. Pornography, defamation, harassment, commercial advertisements and material that encourages criminal conduct may not be uploaded. (wikipedia)

So yes, this Nazi music should be deleted then, since Youtube itself says such things may not be uploaded.

YouTube's argument is naturally that is should have never been uploaded in the first place because of their clause. Ultimately YouTube will pay the price because they miseed this and the original owners who sold YouTube were more than smart to take that deal they got!

This won't cause YouTube any lost viewership. Google might regret their decision to buy YouTube, but only due to copyright suits or the newest latest video site surpassing YouTube. But not cause of this.
