Google Tightens YouTube Thumb Ties

August 8, 2011

Google must have been inspired by the Kenton Knepper modern thumb tie “trick”.

Lady Gaga is one of the most popular artists today and has millions of fans that follow her every move. However, according to the NPR article “Lady Gaga’s YouTube Account is Suspended” no one is above the rules even a mega superstar. According to the article Lady Gaga’s Google Inc. owned YouTube account was suspended “due to “multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s copyright policy.”

It is company policy to remove accounts after there have been three copyright violations. The singers account was restored later the same day but the whole situation makes one wonder just how far Google and others are willing to go. The site in question is run by Lady Gaga officials so it seems hard for her to infringe on her own copyright laws. If Google suspends an account of such a popular personality then that means that the rest of the public better beware.

You may sign into your YouTube account only to find that you have been accused and found guilty of YouTube violations. It will be interesting to see how Google and others target alleged “wrongdoers” and lay down the law.

With the Kenton gizmos struggling is not a good idea. Even magic acts can go wrong.
