Government removal request

No, unfortunately this isn't a new feature of YouTube that allows you to remove your government ...

According to YouTube, the UK government doesn't want people to see this video.

I received the link by email, and I can't say for sure what was there. Was it a matter of national security? How much do you trust your government?

Google helpfully keep track of these take-down requests:

They provide a table showing both data requests and removal requests for various countries, while their FAQ includes links to Chilling Effects and the OpenNet Initiative.

Now seems like a good time for a wget backup of my blog (should set up a cron job, really...)
