YouTube has added a new option to their “Inappropriate Content” feature: YouTube Adds “Hate Speech” Flag To Its Videos. (Hat tip: Baldy.)
I wonder if Ahmed Bedier of CAIR had something to do with this?

TOKYO (Reuters) - Google Inc.’s YouTube.com removed 29,549 video files from its popular Web site after receiving a demand from a group of Japanese media companies over copyright infringement, an industry group said on Friday.
The television, music and movie clips had been posted without the permission of copyright holders, the Tokyo-based Japan Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers said in a statement.
The group, which represents 23 media companies including TV networks and movie distributors, said it would ask YouTube to set up screening and other measures to block postings of unauthorized files. It also called on Internet users not to post video clips in violation of copyright laws.
