    They Changed It

    It's a good thing the author of this article took a screenshot, because it's been changed now. It no longer says who issued the DMCA takedown notice. It just says "multiple third party notifications of copyright infringement".

    Re: sensorship

    Were you responding to me? I can see the links I posted in my comments. My first comment has one link, my second comment has four links, and my third (last as of this post) comment has one link. Some of which are youtube links.

    Re: Re: I can comfirm the full title

    I got a response.

    "Ah crap... Stupid mobile, just lost my reply to you.... Yes, my old channel was one that contained that video. I don't know why channels are being yanked, when Ppl are staying well within the lines of the law. The same week mine was pulled, ronpaul2008 and nufffrespect were down as well.. I'm sure many others. I made a video reply for you, feel free to share it. Btw, that was not the only upload I had that was flagged in such a way. Rather bizarre..."

    Here's the video he made in reply to me. I really liked it. He seems like a really positive guy and I got a good chuckle out of watching it.

    Re: I can comfirm the full title

    I've got some more information now.

    I continued trying to find a cached copy of the video. Out of curiosity, I tried used something called the Wayback Machine to find a cached copy of the original youtube page this was on. The actual page with a description, comments, etc. Not just the URL. Here is the cache.
    (Note that any links you click will be relative to the archive url and thus won't work. If you want to view the article he linked in his description, you must copy/paste the text of it.)

    Out of curiosity, I decided to check out the userpage of the guy who uploaded this video: jettercat.

    But as you can see, jettercat's account was suspended as well.

    Now that I have this new useful tool for viewing page caches, I used Wayback Machine to view jettercat's cached account page.

    There content of that page may give some insight into what the guy's views may have been. There's a video at the top about the teaparty. In his description, among other things, he says he's a right-leaning libertarian.

    But, among the information there is a link to another account of his that he apparently uses as a video blog. GunClinger.

    This account is live. And among its featured channels, is "Street Sand AveNEWS", which is a link to the jettercat user!

    Thus I believe I have tracked down the man who posted the video that was taken down. I've sent him a message asking him to confirm whether the alternately-linked video is the same video as the one that was taken down.

    I can comfirm the full title

    I can confirm the full title of the video that was blocked with a DMCA takedown. "Obama Calls For New World Order In Berlin". Almost the same title as the video that you linked to in your article.

    When I found out about this, I wanted to know what it was that was taken down. Because obviously if the government wants a video taken down, there must be a reason.

    I started googling around trying to figure out if I could find a copy of the video cached by google's caching service that lets you view cached copies of a site. I was unable to find a cache of the video itself. But I was able to find a cached page of the video in question. The cache lead to the embed URL for the video that had been taken down.

    As you can see, the "0CV8Xt2VWvc" indicates that it's the same video that was taken down. And this is on youtube live. Hover your mouse around the screen, and the full title of the video will show up. However, the video won't play. And the google cached version of the video was nothing but a black screen that wouldn't do anything.

    It doesn't -necessarily- prove that the content in the copy you linked is the same. But it proves that the title of the video was "Obama Calls For New World Order In Berlin". If the linked video is the same video that was taken down, then someone up there didn't like the comparison between Obama and Hitler.

    Maybe someone out there with better google-fu than me can find the cached video.
