    I haven’t seen your video, but I have seen a music video on YouTube that has vaginas in it…
    exactly what guideline are you supposed to be violating? =

  • Lucian

    Maybe copyright issues on some of the background music?…

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      Nope, no copyright infringement. The email says “The following video(s) from your account have been disabled for violation of the YouTube Community Guidelines” and that’s it.

    That sucks. What a lame excuse that was that YouTube gave you.

    such a cool video. that dj rocks! i looove the fetish scene! s&m between consenting adults is fabulous, in my humble opinion. i don’t know much about YouTube or if they have any videos online similar to yours. i know nothing about their policies, but i think they should have communicated clearly their reasoning to you. some of the submissive girl’s goodies appear to be hangin’ out (can’t really tell because the lighting is quite dark), and she’s being flaggelated. i’m torn, because although i love this, i can’t really blame the old fogeys for wanting to protect the under 12′s.

      I think they should have communicated the problem to me, and allowed me to remove the video or edit it — instead of penalizing me. (If I ‘offend’ them again, they’ll pull the channel.) Or put an age filter on it… >__<

    Man, that sucks….. and it’s definitely singling out the goth/actual fetish performance community since stuff like Lady Gaga’s is still up. I guess it’s only against the rules if the submissive person is enjoying it??? o.O

    *waits for them to take down the Dahlia Tour White Poem live if male sub is suddenly seen as OMG AGAINST TEH RULZ LOL*

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      The submissive person in the Osaka video is enjoying it, very much so! hahah!

    Hmmm – I mean whilst I don’t have a problem with this (at all), I have to say that YouTube is kinda well famous for keeping even borderline stuff off. I guess the problem is finding the right host. As for whether they’re hipocritical, I guess they are… but as you found there’s always alternatives.

    Still looked like a good night – and good get the post out eventually.

    And yes – that sour puss face should be punishment enough! ;`)

      It’s just upsetting because I built up a large number of subscribers on YouTube, and yet so much is out of my hands and things can get shut down any second?? Not cool…

    Having standards is one thing. Having arbitrary standards that are inscrutable and simply increase the level of self-censorship are another. I suspect they have a bunch of immature dildos and dildettes who capriciously take down videos when it suits their current mood. I just had a run-in with Raw Story where their so-called moderators were running wild like a bunch of 2-year-olds with too much sugar. Fortunately, the owner reads his e-mail and disciplined the little knuckleheads. Trouble with Google is you really can’t get through to the honchos.

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      Exactly, there is no recourse. I saw instances of people who got their channels shut down, and the notice even says they can’t argue it or get them back…

  • PockyChu

    lol. Silly reason for them to take it down.

  • JNova

    Wait wait wait…. so this video has been banned, but it's perfectly acceptable for LADY GAGA'S NEW GAY BONDAGE NUN RAPE VIDEO 'ALEJANDRO' to be posted???

    *sigh*

  • Lindsay

    Ugh, YouTube is sometimes special needs. >:T

  • Laura

    Honestly I've seen much worse survive on YouTube without getting flagged, that sucks! (But it looks like her breasts are bared?)

    And unfortunately, covers aren't a fair use in most countries, I learned that the hard way. There's two layers of copyright: on the performance of the music by the original artist, and also on the music itself (when performed by anyone).

  • Dukebrady13

    Guess they didn't your video up at the same time as Gaga's. Ppl might compare them & judge hers as the truly lame derivative corporate product that it is.

  • Nick

    why dont they just put an age filter on it if they didnt think it was appropriate?

  • DDollie

    That indeed is a strange move for You Tube to just take down that video like unless someone flag the video for inappropriate or You Tube got their balls squeezed on again. I did not see anything wrong done here. Sad to see you had to alter a video that cover an event in Tokyo that happens all the time. What will they do next?

  • http://twitter.com/Dravarious Yukiro Dravarious

    Youtube banned my Medusa video too, and it’s so harmless!! I really wish to upload it since I worked so much with it *grrr*

    as for the fetish show, I love the dominatrix lady, she had the best outfit ever! too bad we didnt get a good picture of her =/

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      That’s so stupid!! >__< So much great Art is lost because of YouTube's policies!!

    nonsense…. :(

  • Sarah

    Sorry you got flagged. I watched the full verzion and well. idk. You tube likes to choices favorites i think. People you can do waht ever the fuck they want and peo[ple who follow the rules and still get punished.

  • Dawn

    As others have said, I’ve seen much worse on YouTube! And I can’t see how this violates any agreement, since this is obviously a stage performance.

  • Meg

    I never gotten that one.. damn.
    Maybe someone just reported it.

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      If someone reported it, it sure backfired on them because now SO many people know how YouTube arbitrarily pulls videos…

  • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

    Hahah! You hit upon my frustrations EXACTLY! So many things have been frustrating me about YouTube lately. I wonder what will happen and if this will continue..

  • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

    Lady Gaga = money and views for YouTube = anything goes!
    Ahaha that is hilarious about the Spiderman!

  • Riff

    Yeah, I think everyone is confused as to why Lady Gags is allowed to savage her crotch on Youtube but you're not allowed to have some dim footage of not-nearly-hardcore bondage.

    Oh, right, it's okay if it's mainstream. (I really resent Lady Gaga for appropriating underground club fashion and putting it forth like some provocative original style of hers…)

    By the way, I've seen a video of a guy in a latex Spiderman costume caressing himself on Youtube.
    Granted, he did make that private after a while, but, to my knowledge, it was never removed.
    But a bit of nipple JUST MAKES EVERYONE GO CRAZY.

    I think it’s missing the point a little to call YouTube’s activity (whether fair or unfair) anti-free speech and so on. YouTube is a business, and definitely shouldn’t be thought of as an unalienable right. They’re going to choose what content to have in order to make them profit. YouTube has strayed away from the alternative, indie video scene (which started as their original concept) for years now and their commercial behaviors are, at least to me, really predictable at this point. I think people should consider giving more attention to the less-mainstream services if they really want a networking place. If we really want to continue to have our voice and art heard on the net we need to empower ourselves by avoiding the mainstream outlets. What do you think?

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      That’s part of my dilemma. YouTube is THE leader when it comes to video hosting. Whenever you, me and friends look up a song or post one on Facebook, we go to YouTube. Just as we go to Google for search.

      I don’t have a problem with putting my fun videos on a different hosting site. But my “reporting” videos have the goal of getting the word out on Japan’s subculture and arts: such as Osaka’s Goth scene at Black Veil. This is a culture that very few people would be able to see for themselves, and I want to support the scene by having the information to reach as large an audience as possible. (and I have close to 3000 subscribers on YouTube.)

      So it’s a struggle… perhaps a balance of using non-mainstream outlets that embrace darker material, and the mainstream ones but with caveats…

      • http://silver.itsumo-online.net/ Lemon

        That’s true, in a way we still need YouTube to carry out such activities…it’s not exactly possible to have the same influence with the alternative hosters. I think you’re right in saying we’ll have to find a happy medium by using both.

        • http://silver.itsumo-online.net/ Lemon

          Oh, and yes, my blog is gone…my host is trying to figure out what’s wrong with the server XD

    What a load of BS! Don’t worry Bazzie, I’d cue up the “angry face” too.

  • Ayame

    There really isn't anything wrong with your video. I like it and it's perfectly fine, it's clearly a report on a stage show. I think it's just business, you don't actually pay Youtube to show your video, but Lady Gaga does. And I think her new video is ridiculous. Ridiculously ridiculous.

  • MoonMaiden90

    this is just stupid! I’ve seen WAY worse things that should have been taken from youtube…& u’ve clearly pointed out all the things here that they couldv’e had a problem with but shouldn’t…*blah*
