YouTube Blocks North Korean Channel

It has to be pretty damn embarrassing to have your YouTube channel blocked a month ago and no one noticed. Seriously, if you use the Wayback Machine you'll see that most of the current videos had only a few hundred views each.

Google, YouTube’s parent company, apparently blocked the channel last month to avoid violating sanctions, but the company has declined to comment. "We don’t comment on individual videos or channels," said Taj Meadows, head of communications in Asia for Google, "but we do disable accounts that violate our terms of service or community guidelines, and when we are required by law to do so."
