"Among other criteria, any video intended or designed to arouse viewers will be considered sexually suggestive."

So that means they are going to take down the Beastman vs. Skeletor vid?

I think this is a good move for YouTube.  The change in policy doesn't remove anything from their site that wasn't going to be removed already under the old policy.  They are just labeling things more accurately.  That doesn't count as censorship to me.  If you want to view it, you still can.  But you will be less likely to encounter sexually explicit video on accident which in my opinion is a good thing.

youtube is doing a phenomenal job with this move.  hurrah to any organiziation actually making a difference to the affect of censoring uneeded and inappropriate material.

i hope this evolves into FCC regulations and sanctions against public broadcasting of any media.  would undoubtedly make this a better world.

Your kidding right? I can't tell.

 

But the idea of ALL media being cencored the way the FCC does is well...frightening...

 

Imagine no matture games, movies, websites, mashups, fan factions, or art.
