France's Front National (who support the EU's mandatory copyright filters) furious when Youtube's copyright filters kill their channel.
These filters don't even exist yet; the closest we come is YouTube's Content ID, which Google created voluntarily, and which is notorious for acts of arbitrary, incorrect censorship.
Google spent $60,000,000 building Content ID, so that's the table stakes for any new online service.
That's what makes the far right European parties' support of this proposal so weird.
The broadcast named TVLibertés is gone, described by YouTube as “YouTube has blocked the broadcast of the newscast of Thursday, June 14 for copyright infringement.”
Political messages will be disappeared on mere allegations by a political opponent, just as might have happened here.
