    Quite right KS

    Money comes before sentiment it seems.

    Good thing about YouTube is that it is a fantastic vehicle for sharing horse races on a worldwide scale in what is probably the only sport that has a huge international following.

    International copyright issues are very complicated,even within the EU their appears to be many discrepencies!!

    Look at http://www.onextwo.com and you will find a video archive of all the races shown on Racing UK, this is a German Bookmaker site thus commercially seen they have more to gain than a “free for all` Youtube!!

    So if you had a product which had a commercial potential then you would be happy for a third party to take that product, give it away for nothing, therefore losing you potential income?

    What a generous person you are :lol:

    Just my opinion, but only the ardent racing fan is going to pay to view these, which does nothing at all to attract the non-committed into our sport.
    Also, it’s a fair bet that the probably piddling amounts involved would be more than recovered by the increased advertising revenue from the much greater number of ‘hits’ on a free site.

    That is absoloutley gutting, leading up to the kauto and denman cheltenham clash I watched the gold cup legend video so many times! I think about kauto everytime i hear rule the world now. It was a great video and luckily i recorded it on my phone!

    This is where racing goes wrong i think, to advertise the sport I think they should be left on there and if anything they should be encouraged!

    As you would guess it’s not only racing footage being hit.

    From todays FT, could this signal the end of YouTube and the like ?

    Sadly when I tried to register, there was a message that they cannot register UK or Irish clients at present.
    Unfortunately censorship is a by-product of an economic downturn so we can expect much more of this kind of thing.
    BTW is it only replays of the races on the day which are visible on the C4 site or is there a way of viewing the archive?

    A former (?) user and YouTube user with an enormous catalogue of racing, jackane24, had his account suspended this week.

    It’s a small world. What does this do for the exposure of Racing UK and British racing to an overseas audience? Minds are not in the right place.

    Certain people and organisations know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

    A very sad development at a time when making easy access to the sport should be a priority. Instead of listening to snake oil salesmen from Formula 1, racings supremo’s should be taking themselves off to Hong Kong for a week.

    If anyone has a copy, could they sum up this article re: the best racing clips on YouTube? I wonder if they’ve got anything to say about copyright banning a la jackane24.

    It is mentioned, but only in passing- the article’s thrust is what a great resource of racing videos Youtube is. The big news of all the content recently removed seems to have gone completely over the writer’s head.

    Yes, seems quite strange to write such an article about clips that have been removed. Not seen it so can’t comment. Any mention of the kauto star videos which were rudely removed. huh. Still bitter about it. May write a letter to them
