Techdirt found an interesting example of how easy it is to censor videos on YouTube. After this faux ad appeared to criticize the control of cable companies, someone filed a defamation complaint and, as shown below, the video was removed. That’s right a faux ad criticizing unnamed cable companies was the basis for a defamation complaint according to the site.
I suppose the makers at Extremely Decent Films could argue the truth defense, but it gets tricky. Do they have to argue real truth or faux truth?
