U2 uploads deleted from YouTube?
« on: March 20, 2020, 09:24:00 PM »
Went searching for HD videos from Slane Castle, PopMart DVDs... and they've disappeared. Poor quality are still up (video of a TV playing the DVD for example). There used to be a few HD uploads of tracks from Live at Slane Castle, but they're gone.   
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

I was devestated when Mofo from the EMAs got taken down. I think that one said Viacom axed it.

Were they uploaded by the official U2 YouTube account or others? If it was others, I am betting U2 or their record label copyright struck the videos.

Others, who ripped the DVDs and uploaded the clips. Most of the HD good quality ones are gone, definitely happened recently. Yeah, they're breaching copyright, but meh.

On the topic, NBC blocked the YouTube upload of U2's awesome performance of Elevation on SNL (even An Tha would like it). And they don't have it available on the NBC website, so that one is gone to the ether and will never be seen again.

Man, I'm glad I had my YouTube craze when I did, then. All the ones you've mentioned were there a few weeks ago, when I was gorging myself on every concert video I could find. I was amazed at how much I found. Aaargh, does this mean it's my fault???

This is a time the world needs its content. Maybe the IP industry could give us a break for a while.

This makes me angry. I have a long list of fav youtube vids.... mostly U2, but not all. I have been finding many of them gone, too. I NEED that stuff.

The ones I was talking about are individual songs, not complete shows. I'd have to go through my list to find them, but there were a few.
