If you try and go to one of the famous Ron Paul YouTube channels: http://www.youtube.com/user/RonPaul2008dotcom you will receive a message that says, “RonPaul2008dotcom has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted.” It seems the Ron Paul channel had collected thousands of videos of Ron Paul appearances, speeches and more in this channel.
It seems that this account is not directly run or owned by the Ron Paul 2012 Campaign, “Restore America Now.” The channel was run by Ron Paul fans and often aggregated network TV appearances from news interviews and coverage from network Tv. It’s suprising the thousands of videos had lasted this long without DMCA requests directly to YouTube officials.
The Ron Paul campaign has yet to acknowledge this famous Ron Paul YouTube channel was shutdown or that they have any concerns about it. Users on the other hand at websites like The Daily Paul & Ron Paul Forums are incredibly upset and trying to figure out what they need to do to get the channel reinstated.
One post on DailyPaul.com is titled: The Largest Ron Paul Channel on YouTube…Removed?! It goes on to say, “RonPaul2008dotcom Has always been my source for watching video’s from current to years back. Having thousands of videos, millions of views, and hundred’s of thousands of subscribers.. Youtube has decided to shut the account down……. To all those who added videos, to it.. Thank you… But, Youtube, must be trying to censor ron paul even more…… IM SO P***ED THOUSANDS OF VIDEOS GONE!!!!”
The removal of this social footprint could be a blow to the Ron Paul 2012 campaign if the numbers quoted above are true. With hundreds of thousands of subscribers there are definitely some users that will lose communication with the Ron Paul political campaign right when the Presidental 2012 race is heating up.
Some of the more popular comments from the forum address the current YouTube Ron Paul Channel banning:
“Interestingly Google (employees) are one of the largest donors to Ron Paul, maybe they won’t be so happy about this either.”
“Although this was a great channel, it wasn’t the YouTube channel for the Ron Paul campaign. It was from a Ron Paul supporter. The campaign’s channel is youtube.com/ronpaul”
We’re posting some of popular Ron Paul videos below. Let us know if there is one we should add.
Please tell us in the comments what you think about the takedown of the Ron Paul unofficial channel.
Ron Paul wins Iowa
Sixteen weeks after Iowans hit the polls to vote for their GOP nominee, Ron Paul has officially been named the winner of the pivotal state. Initially Mitt Romney was declared the victor, and then later Rick Santorum, but it turns out now that the Texas congressman has claimed the most delegates. Paul has also won over the delegates in Minnesota. Mary Willison, volunteer organizer and Ron Paul supporter, joins us for more on the victories.
Ron Paul: A New Hope
Congressman Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution. In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535″ on Capitol Hill. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.”
