YouTube Folds, Turkey Lifts Ban

Sony's New WiFi-Enabled Cybershot DSC-G1

YouTube has removed all of the offending videos that led a Turkish court to order that YouTube be banned from the country earlier this week, and the ban has been lifted.

This sets a terrible precedent for YouTube, who should have stood their ground. The original videos were sophomoric jabs at Turkey from Greeks, none of which should have led to a ban in the first place. For YouTube to agree to remove the videos shows that they’ll be soft on these issues in the future, and it will lead to a never ending series of headaches for the company. This is also yet another blow to freedom of speech in Turkey.
