YouTube restricts weapon videos in the U.K.

AK47-touting and knife-wielding Brits are no longer going to be able to sound off on YouTube . More specifically, weapons shown intimidatingly will not be allowed as gang violence rises ‘cross the Pond. YouTube has enacted regional restrictions in the past such as banning Nazi-type videos in German but this marks this regions first restriction. The companies 24/7 content review teams are acting to monitor all new material and YouTube is asking viewers to flag previously uploaded videos that violate this new rule.
