Ever noticed how many YouTube videos are being removed by YouTube for no apparent good reason other than politically motivated censorship?
Lets do something about that! Let us build a network that keeps re-uploading everything YouTube removes ;)
Special thanks to KLC for suggesting this group and for producing the original group logo :)
Re-Load videos to your own channel and show us your handy work, embed any reloads here in a comment, have fun dissidents! If you are unable to do this but have some suggested videos for reloading, please forward in a comment and I shall try to upload to my channel.
I'm not suggesting that we steal anyone's creative original works and upload, linking to videos for full credit is the right thing to do. But when YouTube removes content for no good reason, let us show some dissent! A media corporation cannot demand that no one dare display a minute long excerpt from one of their broadcasts in the public domain, when it is done so in a totally not for profit manner and for educational purposes.
