let them ban youtube then
if the government want to censor the internet and block youtube, let them, whats the problem here? I mean, if turkey wants to show a censored version of youtube fine, or no youtube fine again.
nothing to see here, move along.
what I don't get is why the head of the internet board is meeting with google, to discuss what? you'll find it hard to defend youtube? ok, I don't remember youtube asking you to defend it, but if you choose to do so, why not.
google were right to put back the video, put it back, let whoever wants to block it, block it, or youtube, or whatever.
they are in a part of the world which is comparatively poor and has barely any money anyway, so what are they gonna miss? a couple of million page impressions. I think the youth in turkey will be far more pissed off when they can't watch their hamster videos anymore than google would at losing about 5 euros worth of ad revenue.
who cares, stop pandering to them, let them ban you, then walk away.
it's like the situation with the CEOP, the uk "save the children" brigade and facebook, why did facebook even turn up, just say "no, our systems work better than yours and cost SIGNIFICANTLY LESS" and walk away. don't return their calls and don't worry about it, what are they gonna do, block facebook? there would be riots! it's the only thing british youth have to care about!!!
