Pornographic videos flood YouTube
By Siobhan Courtney
Interactive reporter, BBC News




YouTube is taking action to deal with the video hijack
Video-sharing website YouTube has removed hundreds of pornographic videos which were uploaded in what is believed to be a planned attack.

The material was uploaded under names of famous teenage celebrities such as Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers.

Many started with footage of children's videos before groups of adults performing graphic sex acts appeared on screen.

YouTube owner Google said it was aware and addressing the problem

6. That actually hurts the argument for Internet freedom
They argument for Internet freedom is not to protect porn, that is something that a societal standard can easily be argued, and it is not for the good of the censor, but to conform to a standard for the society that uses the service.

And by making censorship issues about porn, youtube can get an advantage in the argument. Internet freedom is about exchange of ideas and information that do not go against societal standards, but could be censored by a standard that just the censor holds, potentially a political, religous, or any other ideology.

8. I read your last sentence as I wondered if those pornclips might have
been posted by someone whose intent was perhaps to further the 'cause' of internet censorship, ala the Red Brigade:
