Submission + - Rightster blocks Youtube video of UK Prime Minister's Questions (

united_notions writes: Prime Minister's Questions is a popular weekly televised puppet show in the UK. Expatriate political nerds cannot access it via the BBC's iPlayer unless they have access to a UK-based VPN (top tip: most UK universities and many UK employers run VPNs, all you need is a working login!). For VPN-less expats, the solution has been the UK Parliament's imaginatively named 'UKParliament' Youtube channel. But their upload of last week's PMQs has been blocked by online media distribution firm Rightster. Rightster have previously hosted clips of PMQs, but does that enable them to block the whole thing? Just W exactly TF is going on here?
