oprah.pngYouTube’s lawyers, locked in a frantic bid to clean up the site’s content in order to attract potential advertisers, are a busy bunch these days. Perhaps they’re too busy to notice that talent will soon be migrating to less heavily policed areas. And hello lawyers, can you say “satire?”
Full disclosure: I’ve been a guest on Oprah! three times. I think she’s great. So I’m really surprised at this development.
The lawyers have certainly identified a public enemy by banning the latest video of those loveable rabbits, Buns and Chou Chou. Oh yes sir, the Internet is a safer place tonight because YouTube and Oprah’s lawyers took down the video where Rabbit Bite’s bunnies took a satirical look at Oprah. But you can see the video on Revver.
