[tor-talk] rant - just want a bit of music



I am presently in New Zealand, and when I try to view in firefox or
download with youtube-dl, some a Capella music, half the time I get a
message from Google saying SME (Sony Music Entertainment) has blocked
this track in my country. Surely solving the ready-access to censored
content problem would be a good start for our freedom lovin'
community?

Example a capella failures to download:
$ youtube-dl 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Toga5cWRi0k&list=PLBCnvBvQEJRpdirUvR1CKLMhESI7whlWM'

More than half of this group's vocal performances are blocked!!

We need some sort of bit-torrent for censored youtubes, where those
who've already downloaded a youtube file, can automatically make it
available to others - this could also speed up download perhaps,
taking a load off those poor overworked google servers...
