I’m a scientist, that means that I hate the censorship of ideas and it also means that I value legitimate criticism. Due to this recent article on the Huffington Post, National Geographic went on a rampage all over YouTube. Filing DMCA complaints against everybody and their uncle who wasn’t showing Cesar Millan in a favorable light.
It’s simple. Just because NG doesn’t like people criticizing Millan’s use of force against dogs, that doesn’t give them the right to take away their right to express it. A compilation of segments of a couple of seconds long does not constitute stealing.
In response, I am posting the video in RuTube and if that gets taken down there are other Chinese video sharing sites outside of NatGeo’s influence.
