However, YouTube has gone on targeting a number of crypto-related channels in a response to the fake crypto giveaway scam videos that are usually posted. The platform even shut down the official channel of the crypto-news focused website Bitcoin.com which is a violation of YouTube’s Terms of Service. After an appeal, the channel and about 40,000 subscribers were restored in two days’ time. Many other channels had similar experiences regarding the strange attitude towards cryptocurrency as the platform suddenly pulled the plug on livestreams regarding Bitcoin halving livesteams and coverages of the Twitter hack.
Also as recently reported, The Youtube Crypto Channel Altcoin Daily run by the brothers Austin and Aaron Arnold got a ban from the video streaming platform after more than two days offline
YouTube argues that it cannot be liable for what other users are placing up as content on the platform and therefore wants the lawsuit that was filed against it by multiple companies including Ripple to be dismissed. YouTube argues that the claims made by ripple are barred under the 230 Section of the Communications Decency Act which “protects websites against the evil of liability for a failure to remove offensive content” therefore providing the platform with the much-needed immunity. This means that YouTube is not a publisher of third-party content and they are not liable for it so they cannot be sued.
