    2010 Olympic men impossible to find

    I noticed on Youtube they have Yuna and the ladies, but Plush, Evan, Dai are missing. Content blocked. Why would Olympic Commitee block the men but show the ladies. I wanted to watch Plush and Evan. Anyone have links to these vids elsewhere? I found nothing. Thank you.

    the IOC does not block the content. The people who film and broadcast them do.

    Then why Toni would they leave up the ladies and not the men? What is the reasoning for that? Thanks.

    Thank you bibi24 but the answer is "the uploader has not made this available in your country." (USA). I've googled for any possible links. Rats!

    I don't know. I don't know what broadcast the men vids you are looking for are from. Are they NBC-Universal? CBC? The ladies etc maybe from a network not willing to cruise youtube for the olympic links. Again, I don't know. But it's their right to claim copyright, so I don't get upset about it. Perhaps email whatever broadcast company is pulling their stuff off (normally NBC-Universal) and ask them? They may give you a detailed explanation.

    Because Universal Sports/NBC uploads their videos to universalsports.com and charges a fee that's why they have youtube pull them down. Which is, again, their right as the copyright holder.

    Well several broadcasters have had the ladies up for a long time, pretty much 2 years. And NBC's coverage is there. Something 2 years old is not making any money I am guessing on Universal. I am beginning to think it is maybe Lysacek,as has he not been vigilant about his likeness being used if he's not getting paid for it? And wasn't there a thread before Nationals saying it was money keeping him away? He seems to be hurting himself as he has two more years before the skating world has a new chamion. Then I wondered if Plushenko's people (he's quite rich-his lawyers maybe-doid not want his skate up there. His other skates are all there, but we know he was not happy with the skating LP nor the result. I wonder how much influence the "artist" has if he's a skater. I see Prince was vigilant with Youtube, at least when I was looking... while most artists realize that it is a way to make new fans. And more money.

    I rewatched a lot of Aerosmith due to Tyler's Idol thing. It was a great business decision for him, though I must say I wish he were more honest as he liked way more than seemed likely.

    So, here in the US, there are only blocked vids of that Mens Olympics and not just one source. HMM. I stopped taping long ago, so youtube is where it's at for me. Just as we have libraries, free and open internet is the best thing for education/innovation.

    The only way Evan could have vids pulled down is due to copyright, and he does not own the copyright to olympic broadcasts - even when they are of himself. I don't have the answer for you as to why one is blocked and not another, that's up to NBC/the networks.

    Remember they paid big bucks for the rights to film and broadcast. So, yeah, I'm not feeling sorry for we the fans not getting to see it. You can still view the olympics on UniversalSports[dot]com. And, really, if figure skating fans aren't willing to pay for a broadcast how can we expect to have Doritos or other big company sponsors to pay for it? We devalue it just as much as the rest of the world in the eyes of the network. Possibly more so.


    Interestingly enough - other niche sports like the sport of mushing are completely online paid for subscriptions. Folks pay for it and they don't turn around and pirate it for others. And it\'s not as accessable as figure skating. *shrugs* Just food for thought, I suppose.

    The one I'd love to see is Lambiel's short program. I remember getting gooseflesh from that one.

    Thanks so much, Doris! I just watched it. The guy is a phenomenon. I'm so glad he stayed in even though he didn't medal this time. The more there is of Stephane, the better. He does have that silver from 2006, after all.
