This week's BBC World "Click" half-hour magazine carries a pretty damning report on Google/You Tube's three-strike [alleged DMCA infringement notice] account takedown principle. It is applied to rank-and-file bloggers, but would YT –which is perfectly happy to monetize any potentially "lefty" content as long as nobody objects– behave equally harshly towards any "offender"? In all, yet another reminder of the utter idiocy that is the DMCA and its ilk, and the legislators that brought it upon ourselves [and the predominantly American voters who put those legislators in place... why can't they fight Communism or something instead?]. There's an embedded 4m28s Google-response video on the page, though the whole segment has yet to appear on the site (possibly next week). Better watch it on TV cable near you; schedule & FAQ: news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes ...
