Well, IBM, that's a first

Well, a quick search indicates that GEMA is rather...aggressive in asserting its alleged rights where YouTube is concerned. (I say alleged because there are documented cases in which GEMA has claimed royalties for music to which it doesn't own the rights.) One survey suggested that 61.5% of the 1000 most viewed YouTube clips are blocked in Germany.

Techdirt has some interesting articles on this subject.

Press conference!

One of the dilemmas in using even supposedly royalty free music is that some places sell a license to music from artists who explicitly offer their music royalty free. Back when I tried to use music in a couple of videos, both times I got it free and clear with permission and explicit rights to use it, and both times Youtube tried to block it because one of the music sites sold the same music. After wrangling and showing the license and even involving the artist (same one in both cases), Youtube allowed the use in both cases. I know of other video creators who actually bought licenses, and still had complaints from competing music sources. Unless you wrote and performed it yourself, and can prove it, you can get hit by this sort of block.

IBM has lawyers, don't they?

I can see it without any restrictions. Just open it directly by clicking on the embedded video.

Looks like it has been fixed. Let's watch the olds.

So much for the 'world-wide' web.

YouTube scheint momentan in den GEMA Konflikt ordentlich Öl ins Feuer zu gießen, wie die Tage mit dem Live Stream vom Maidan. Das schreibt die GEMA:

Vielleicht betrifft das jetzt "vorsorglich" alle Live Streams...
