Apple kills long-time event archive on YouTube


Amber Neely:

An Apple archivist has had his YouTube account disabled after Apple filed multiple takedown requests against his account.

Brendan Shanks, owner of the Apple WWDC Videos channel on YouTube, tweeted that Apple had filed a series of copyright removal requests against his channel.

The videos in question were decades-old recordings of WWDC events.

Due to the multiple violations, not only were the videos removed, but Shanks’ YouTube channel has been disabled.

I would bet this has more to do with Jobs appearing in portions of the videos rather than anything to do with the session contents.
