YouTube admits mistake in deleting crypto videos last week, plans to reinstate all w/o penalty

posted 4 months ago
YouTube said today that its removal of hundreds of crypto-related videos earlier this week was "in error." The Internet giant said the channels have since been put back online. However, a quick check today indicated that none had yet been restored.

"With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call," a YouTube spokesman said. "When it's brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it." The spokesman added that there has been no change in its policies vis a vis crypto and that all affected videos were "reinstated" without "any penalty to the channel."
