This is what it's come to. Teenagers singing "Winter Wonderland" being censored off YouTube. Fair use has always been at risk on YouTube, thanks to abusive DMCA takedown notices sent by copyright owners sometimes carelessly , sometimes not. But in the past several weeks, two things have made things much worse for those who want to sing a song , post an a capella tribute , or set machinima to music. First, it appears that more and more copyright owners are using YouTube's automated copyright filtering system known as the Content ID system , which tests all videos looking for a "match" with "fingerprints" provided by copyright owners. Second, thanks to a recent spat between YouTube and Warner Music Group , YouTube's Content ID tool is now being used to censor lots and lots of videos previously, Warner just silently shared in the advertising revenue for the videos that included a "match" to its music. EFF, along with many other public interest groups, have repeatedly expressed our concerns to both copyright owners and YouTube about the dangers of automated filtering systems like the Content ID system. These systems are still primitive and unable to distinguish a tranformative remix from copyright infringement.
YouTube features images of Devins' body in search results
Active shooter at YouTube HQ. Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk. Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers.
Two days after the killing of an Instagram star with thousands of followers shocked the internet, YouTube has failed to remove multiple videos featuring images of her mutilated body from the platform. Police have charged Brandon Clark, 21, with killing Devins. The incident made headlines around the world after Clark posted photos of Devins' body on his Instagram profile. Business Insider has seen the images, and police have verified their authenticity. They were removed from Clark's Instagram stories by Monday morning, and some hours later, his account and his Facebook profile were deleted. But this was not before other Instagram users republished the photos.

Clark also shared the images on the gaming chat service Discord, police said, and they have appeared on other social networks, including Twitter, where a simple search for Clark or Devins produced results with the photos on Monday. Instagram is getting a handle on the spread of the pictures , according to ABC News, and users have also assisted in scrubbing them from the social network by flooding key hashtags with images of pink clouds , according to Fast Company.
Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg said he was "sickened" when the killer mentioned him. On Thursday evening, it was reported that at least one shooter opened fire on congregants in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand , killing at least 49 people. As information on the attacks started to emerge, it became increasingly clear that the shooter or shooters were adherents of far-right extremist ideology, particularly after an page manifesto surfaced articulating Islamophobic and white supremacist views.
