WATCH THE VIDEO BANNED BY YOUTUBE AND VIMEO: My interview with a gay activist attorney in Chicago. Watch it on Facebook: https://t.co/73A052IrPN
|Staring into the camera while being interviewed|
YouTube removed the video in August, 2012, when I originally published this post. Vimeo removed it in July, 2013. Both said the reason was violation of privacy.
But no privacy was violated. I interviewed an openly gay attorney (David Amen) who attended the anti-Chick-fil-A "kiss-in" in Chicago. He consented to an interview on camera, which is obvious in the video. Somebody ("an individual," says YouTube) filed a violation of privacy complaint. But who? Everybody in the video was on a public sidewalk. The only people identified by name consented to be identified.
I also believe that YouTube and Vimeo are in violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
