    Hi i was interested to see footage of the crash that Massa had in the Formula 1 in hungary, but all the videos say i can't watch them because of copyright restrictions in my country.

    Surely the whole point of youtube is to allow people to watch anything regardless of what is posted and prevent this ****.

    Why does youtube allow copyright restrictions based on your location. Surely this is just stupid??

    The right to broadcast F1 in this country is owned by the BBC no one else can broadcast or distribute the footage. Youtube allows people to upload videos provided they own the copyright to do so.

    It is getting really bad. You can't even view some music videos because of copyright restrictions lol. This has only happened in the last year and it is stupid because they have probably lost half of their viewers, I certaintly do not use it as frequently as I did a year ago!

    The record companies have started to enforce their rights on behalf of the performers because when the videos are shown on Youtube they don't receive the royalty payments that would be due if the videos were being broadcast in any other regular way.

    I am pretty sure the beeb took the short video down. It was on their site yesterday and is no where to seen now. You could probably find the replay in the iPlayer footage. It is on you tube loads of times, as people upload it and FOM block it.
