01:43 pm - Youtube wtf?
Why is youtube targeting Hetalia videos and deleting them??!  I have so many on my favourites list, mostly MADs, that has gotten deleted.  Whatever copyright issue they've got there HAS to be millions of other videos violating those same rules, why are they targeting Hetalia so insistently?!  It's so annoying ARGH! (And I think they're suspending accounts of people who have been uploading them too).

Probably because someone is reporting them unfortunately.

But all of the reposted MADs that I've seen the people reposting clearly state that they did not make the MADs and generally they also give the nico link to the original. It's not as if they say they made the MADs and aren't giving credit to the original creators, in which case it WOULD be like stolen fanart. Personally I've had pieces of art I've done taken without my being told and put onto facebook groups (it was an APH fanart that someone posted onto an APH group on facebook) and by luck I came across it. It didn't really bug me that they didn't tell me they took it to post there, they didn't say they drew it and they left my initials on the bottom, albeit I was surprised they chose that pic to post given all the other ones out there that are so much more awesome than mine XD

It's so much easier for non-Japanese fluent users like myself to use youtube rather than nico, and also I like videos on youtube because I have a site that can download the videos off for my own collection, or just the MP3s of the videos if I happen to like the song or something but can't be hassled to go digging for the name of it and then downloading it.

Youtube isn't targeting them, whoever owns the copyright is. Fox went through a phase of reporting as much as possible last year IIRC.
