YouTomb collects banned videos from YouTube

An interesting project, YouTomb (http://youtomb.mit.edu/) collects the banned from YouTube videos for alleged copyright violation.

The authors says that “YouTomb is a research project by MIT Free Culture that tracks videos taken down from YouTube for alleged copyright violation.”

There’s no explanation how do they monitor those videos, but the fact is that the project keeps them for free view and download.

The project is licenced as AGPL 3, and the source code available here.

but have since spoken out in support of the project as it shifted towards nonviolent protests and other legal methods.
