I don't know if it broke any, but since all french people have the right to access to material proposed by the candidates and vice versa, candidates have the right to tell people about their plans/programs, and since Youtube is a defacto platform widely seen in France and elsewhere, I believe restricting access to his video is an infringement to his rights.
I am in no way a lawyer, but I see it a common sense. However, it is more the duty of the french state to ask Youtube to give access to anyone to Zemmour video without restriction, as they can access videos of other candidates. Youtube is not and should not be a voter in these elections.
Plenty of other online platforms for them to use with much looser rules. Pornhub comes to mind :lol:
On a serious note, Youtube did not break any French law by limiting Zemmour's video. Again it is a private company and he is free to take his business elsewhere.
As for the copyrights, this is something to be resolved by french court not by youtube.
Youtube has it in its regulations so tough luck for Zemmour. Mind you, this is a very wise decision from any platform after Napster (You're an old timer like me to have heard about it)

But normally youtube does not require anyone to create an account in order to see its videos.
The only time you do is when you want to say something :D
not rue. Age restriction automatically requires an account.

He used copyrighted materials from France24 and someone else (forgot who) without their permission or knowledge, they are suing him in french courts. But if they made a copyright claim on his video then YouTube is obligated to remove it, it's as simple as that!

He's not a victim of anything. I find it hard to believe someone who worked in the media as long as he did had no idea about copyright claims and protections of intellectual property. So while he's playing the victim now, he knew perfectly well what he was doing and he did it intentionally so he can now go on his poor me media frenzy

Why did YouTube restrict his video there is no NSFW content in it, YouTube are trying to censor the Right
Hate speech and violence is NSFW based on their rules ;)

Stop using google if they are trying to censor you. Just boycott w rte7. I dislike Facebook i do not use their products, i dislike Amazon i do not buy from Amazon...if you dislike a company boycott.

One more time for the people in the back: he used copyrighted materials from 10 french companies without their knowledge or permission, they are suing and requested for YouTube to remove his video, youtube didn't comply because of something to do with french law vs eu law, anyway the video is still there pending precisions from the companies, however Youtube did age restrict the video for containing violent images.

So if anything you can say your far right champion won this battle against french media and copyright protections. You cannot however make a claim that "youtube is trying to censor the right"

His move was not for people like VipModz, it’s for JustLeb who are rightists but not on board with him.

I don't see any hate speech, it's a well structured video

Boycotting google/youtube isn't an option because there is no good alternative yet although I did boycott Google Chrome

your opinion differs from youtube's. They are free as a private company mish low regulations is a right wing thing?

Build a good alternative then (trump is trying to) or accept your fate. Ooooor get in line with high regulations which i support something that would set rules on these companies in terms of censorship and data collection. This BS of only my rules but no regulations and a libertarian whenever it suits my cause is BS. If you cannot boycott and you are for low regulations...you are being contradictory and following the path of idiocy.

He can do that which results in a Copyright claim from YT meaning the video cannot be monetized but it shouldn't have been restricted

It's restricted because it contains violent images, and no, the owners of the copyrighted materials decide what they want done with the video, they can either choose to have it removed or keep it and take the adsense money.

In this case they requested its removal and YouTube hasn't complied yet.
