This neat thread may become obsolete and moot.

YouTube may be going down the "tubes"

In the last 2 days, 5 of the videos I had as Favorites are no longer available and the users have lost their rights to ever join YouTube again. "This video has been removed due to terms of use violation."

"Long Long Time with Bobby Darin [video unavailable]

When clicking on the user that posted the video the result is:

"This user account is suspended."

From YouTube Help:

"Why was my account suspended?

Your account was suspended due to repeated or severe violation of our Terms of Use. Users with suspended or terminated accounts are prohibited from creating new accounts or accessing YouTube's community features. "

There must be someway royalties can be provided so we can see these videos. Perhaps a membership fee that YouTube passes on to the copyright owners.

I would gladly purchase DVDs of some of the videos if they were available.
