Apparently a privacy violation does not count against a youtuber’s rating on youtube. Because an unmentioned person (though I suspect that I know who it is), file a “privacy claim”. Youtube wrote me, and mentioned the complaint. I then filed my evidence that the photos were blurred out. In fact they started grayed out, until I could properly blur the photos so that they were not “uniquely identifiable”. Which they were not, the blur was strong enough that now own could make out the person’s face. Regardless of that fact, the photos were from MySpace and therefore were public domain.
I posted a video after the complaint was filed, which was like 2 weeks ago.
I didn’t know how this would turn out, but I dug my heels in on it because of those two facts of having gotten a photo from “public domain” and blurring the faces. So I documented the process in stages, before, during and after the complaint process.
I have explained what “public domain” means in several other blog posts. Reference: https://opinions.clovisstar.com/?s=brandon
BTW- To make it clear the only photo of anyone anywhere was in the thumbnail. And any other than that which only took up a second on the video itself, was mine, and I did not mention anyone’s full names.
I suppose the good thing,is that it didn’t effect my relationship with Youtube and I have appealed this take down, I will continue to work on this issue in whichever ways that I can and I will report the results.
I realize that youtube is a private company, and they can and should be able to do whatever they want, with censorship and all of that. So I am very much in favor of starting and building new and newish broadcasting platforms. Then hopefully the best format prevails.
I still work with www.Steemit.com and www.D.tube
I also recommend looking into the Ron Paul Institute
STEEMIT PLATFORM FOR STREAMS
More broadcasts will be given to Disruptarian at Youtube
