YouTube Bans Nudity; What About Art?
Of notable interest. The LA Times’ Culture Monster did a quick search of YouTube to see which artists and works of art have succeeded in evading YouTube’s nudity standards policy. According to the Monster,
YouTube, which is owned by Google, officially forbids users from posting videos to its site that feature sexually explicit content. It also forbids “most” nudity — that is to say, “if a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for YouTube,” according to the company’s rules. “There are exceptions for some educational, documentary and scientific content, but only if that is the sole purpose of the video and it is not gratuitously graphic.”
