YouTube Hosting Illegal Videos?

Youtube is on shaky ground in Germany after seeing a few violent reactions from a German Paliamentarian. The source of the problem was that Youtube was found hosting Nazi related material uploaded by users.

This was quoted

“amounts to aiding and abetting incitement of these people.”

Clips include scenes from the 1940 Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda film Jud Suess and music videos from German far-right rock band Landser.

The display of Nazi imagery or logos, or supporting Nazi ideals is illegal in Germany and punishable by jail time as well as severe fines.
