Base on the two quoted examples: they want to stop a Japanese company patenting a traditional Kenya bag design not stop people making them and they want to stop a UK company copyrighting a common Kenyan word.
The quoted text is not suggesting Kenya want to take the copyrights and patents, just stop anyone from doing so. Reading the source article makes this very clear.
I believe Kenya is right to do this, it is not protectionism and Mike Masnick owes Kenya an apology.
I live in the UK and don't notice any UK music videos missing. I went looking, extensively, several times after but I found everything I was looking for including recent acts like La Roux and Kosheen. They were available in HD too.
