Speaking of Copyright……!

A LinkedIn connection from Greece, Dr. Anthi Katsirikou, Librarian, PhD, MSc, professor at the Technological Educational Institution of Athens, Greece and Co-chair of the international magazine: “Qualitative and Quantitative Methods for Libraries”, sent me a YouTube link of a historical documentary video about ancient Greece. The name of the video is, “Greece, Secrets of the Past” and the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QI9dez35-zM&feature=related. When I went to the specific link to watch the documentary, I found this message in the video window: “This video contains content from Image Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds. Sorry about that.” So, the video is blocked in the United States and maybe other countries. It may be available only in Greece for whatever reasons this is happening. Apparently, the world is not allowed to share a documentary with historical facts about the biggest ancient civilization on earth; not even the people (like this author) who are descendants of this civilization!
