20,000 Worldclass University Lectures Made Illegal, So We Irrevocably Mirrored Them - LBRY

lterrat's bookmarks 2017-03-16

Summary:

"Today, the University of California at Berkeley has deleted 20,000 college lectures from its YouTube channel. Berkeley removed the videos because of a lawsuit brought by two students from another university under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We copied all 20,000 and are making them permanently available for free via LBRY.

This makes the videos freely available and discoverable by all, without reliance on any one entity to provide them (even us!).

The full catalog is over 4 TB and will be synced over the next several days."
