That wasn't actually my point at all. I'm all in favour of stuff being on YouTube. As I said, I've bought many great things solely as a result of coming across them on YouTube.

It was just, as Kes said, this guy was screaming about people belittling him, when all Kes had said was there are no official Brian May DVD releases, which is correct. I don't see how that's belittling in any way.

Thanks Leigh.

I can also see it from JulyMorning's POV. Sometimes when you say something, it either doesn't come out right, or wasn't right in the first place. Sometimes we don't like being wrong. If I'd put ANY sarcasm in there, or anything I said could be misconstrued as being derogatory, I'd possibly understand the reaction a bit better.

Queenonline, and the servers and the people who run it, are based in England.

YouTube and Google, AFAIK are based in California, so if Obama gets this piece of law through, it'll be up to him and his administration to act on the things that are "going on" in his territories, and not just lauch Tomahawk cruise missile strikes against the countries who might take a while to catch up.

Here is wikipedia's article but as it states in the beginning, it must be updated. Very international in scope.

Here is the text of section 201 which (allegedly) Obama wants to revive

Just know also that we may see a different Obama after midterm elections. He needs to be spanked and
hopefully the American voters will do just that at the midterm polls.
