Youtube Finally Penalized For Censorship

YouTube was punished with 100,000 euros (around $118,115) over the weekend in a German court for lifting a video of a coronavirus lockdown protest in Switzerland.

After the Dresden Higher Regional Court in Germany demanded an injunction directing YouTube to re-upload the video in April 2020, the video platform neglected the ruling for nearly a month before complying on May 14, a "deliberate and serious violation," the court found, according to free speech group Reclaim the Net. YouTube told the court the video required it to be removed because it disrupted the company’s "medical misinformation policy," which YouTube has broadened since the outset of the pandemic to push content that includes claims about COVID-19 vaccinations that oppose health authorities' guidance. The court reportedly rejected this argument.
