This week I give an update on the #CryptoClassAction Crypto Class Action in Australia and why the case that Epic Games brought against Apple, also in Australia, matters to us. It’s been a long time since we had anything to report but I’ll explain why the case is moving again.
Not only did Epic sue Apple in the US, they sued in Australia, and that might just help us!
I also give a little description of the IAF passing out parade and air show I was at on Thursday. Wow.
We were due to have our fourth case management hearing in our Crypto Class Action Law Suit against Facebook and Google in Australia’s Federal Court last night. It didn’t happen because it’s been postponed. But as I explain in the podcast, this is just the normal workings of the legal system and doesn’t harm our case.
On Christmas Eve reports started dropping onto Twitter of major YouTube Channels having large amounts of content censored and deleted. The common factor was talking about crypto currencies or blockchain technology. No warnings were given and the damage was widespread.
I put this into the wider context of mass censorship on YouTube away from alternative and non-main stream topics and creators and toward the mainstream “safe” for advertisers content that YouTube is able to consistently make money on.
My extra thoughts on this: there’s definitely an element of the fall out from the COPPA settlement, this saw Google fined for collecting data on children watching videos in contravention of a clear law. Whatever directed them to take this action, it is yet another reason why our Crypto Class Action case, links below, is so important!
I recorded this over a week ago, the video went up quickly on 3speak but it’s taken me a while to get back into the grove with updating my own website. I’ve got to say that I’m increasingly of the opinion that Steem provides a better blogging platform than my own site. I will explore the reasons why in the future but for now I’m still updating here.
