YouTube – Round 2 – Censorship fight!

Oh man I can’t just leave YouTube alone!

I have already published an article a while back about how YouTube’s practices are terrible in terms of content creators with the classical slogan of “Where’s the fair use?” Now for those who care you can check out that article before this one. But normally a company that does something inherently flawed and against its content creator base would attempt to fix the problem they started. At least I thought that was happening due to the last copyright claim that we fought (and won) on YouTube. But YouTube has decided instead of cooling down the situation that instead they’re going to add some gasoline to the mix!

YouTube at the time of this posting is the number 1 video service that the entire internet goes to for all of it’s user created content media needs. There was a time where even I used it.

That one of my hacks indeed does work.

Links and hot-linking to binaries is forbidden!

Broken Links due to hot-linking.

Hello! You have received this page instead of the binary because external web-sites and YouTube content creators attempting to link to files on my site while taking credit for hosting them.

Hot-link protection is now enabled. I didn’t want to do this. In a civilized society you would link to the blog containing my binary in an effort to give bloggers like us credit for hosting the file.
