The Wikipedia article states that: "In February 2010, YouTube removed the videos "Element" and "Tides" from its service saying the representation of nudity offended the site's "community standards." The National Coalition Against Censorship and the Electronic Frontier Foundation both intervened in support of Greenfield and the videos were promptly reinstated."
It is, of course, culturally important that the nude representation of the human body, a fixture in Western art since its earliest period, should not be removed from the free internet, especially not by ideologues who have negative attitudes to the body. The NCAC and EFF are to be commended for their stand and YouTube respected for not allowing itself to be bullied.
What will be puzzling to many Europeans is why the material is still age-restricted. It is not violent or disturbing or overtly sexual. It is simply the naked body engaged in fluid and free movement, enaged with the elements. It is inconceivable that this natural aspect of humanity should be considered inappropriate because of the inherited prejudices of some.
Cultural and personal freedom can never be taken for granted, given the disturbed and ill-educated state of much of humanity, a situation likely to get worse during the ongoing economic crisis. Defend it or lose it!
