Thats what freedom of speech is about.. The terriost win if we say ok well we don't like that so you can't say it. Hello.... Thats what they want. Don't get me wrong I hate them as much as the next person, but you can't fight them by taking away any of my freedoms. Then you're becoming just as bad as them.. As far as youtube goes its their site their rules. If they feel something is inappropriate they got the right to remove it, and if they don't they got the right to keep it up.

More power to Joe for voicing his concerns. As long as he doesn't try to actually push it on youtube.

i agree with that although allot of people USA or not don't like these video so you tube might not hear much about this but isn't you tube supposed to be about free speech and technically banning videos like this is a breach of free speech. but we cannot put porn on you tube too but thats another story

This isn't an infringement of rights to freedom of speech... the people that own Youtube can do whatever they want to the site, as this article shows. It technically isn't a public forum for people to express their views (even if that's what they intended to do in the first place), it's a business, first and foremost.

captaincharisma jimmythe1 is correct, this is not a free speech issue. You can send your opinion letter to a publication (magazine, newspaper, or news channel), but they do not have to air your views. Google is a private company offering a service in hopes to make a profit.

However, I wonder which country's legal standards will be used to define some of these terms. Not all countries share the same definition on all the terms presented. (One man's terrorist is another man's revolutionary hero...)

I especially like the part where you are not to reveal other people's personal information.
Privacy is important. A partial privacy (choosing what to make public and what not) is to be controlled by the involved person alone. Please apply that to Google street view and the like. I just CAN'T STAND people wanting to know more about others without them allowing this, but I HATE the means to fulfill this desire (read paparazzi).

"predatory behavior, stalking, ___threats___, harassment, invading privacy, or the revealing of other members’ personal information"

Now I can ban "ThePreacher84040" for threatening me and a lot of other people in the world that we will go to hell for not believing in his god (Jesus Christ). This will work for most fanatic religious videos, or at least it should if YouTube guys are not hypocrites and actually do what they say they'll do.
