there are videos posted showing the opening of the beijong olympics. if you try to search athens olympics and sydney olympics, thousands of posts will appear in youtube especially the opening. but why is that beijing olympics is removed in the youtube website or any websites? is this because most of their fireworks used in the opening FAKE? don't answer me copyright thingy because like what i said, sydney and athens opening of olympics are still in youtube...

Maybe it has something to do with copyright limitations for now? The Sydney and Athens Olympics have long passed and the commercial viability of their footage is not strong anymore. You will probably find that once the Beijing Olympics focus starts to slow down, the rights owners for Olympic content will back off also and there will start to be more and more videos of the event posted. At this moment in time it is HOT property and the rights owners will be wishing to exploit this as best they can for now.

Oh really?? i didnt know that, well whenever i go on youtube i seriously find videos that are not happening anywhere in real life and something i came to know from you is that something SO GREAT happening is not on YOUTUBE is really shocking. I guess there must surely be some government rights then or maybe youtube people are off to vacation now lol ahaha!
