Google has given roughly 200 people and organizations, including a British police unit, the ability to “flag” up to 20 YouTube videos at once to be reviewed for violating the site’s guidelines.

The Financial Times last week reported that the U.K. Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit has been using its “super flagger” authority to seek reviews – and removal – of videos it considers extremist.

The news sparked concern that Google lets the U.K. government censor videos that it doesn’t like, and prompted Google to disclose more details about the program. Any user can ask for a video to reviewed. Participants in the super flagger program, begun as a pilot in 2012, can seek reviews of 20 videos at once.

A person familiar with the program said the vast majority of the 200 participants in the super flagger program are individuals who spend a lot of time flagging videos that may violate YouTube’s community guidelines. Fewer than 10 participants are government agencies or non-governmental organizations such as anti-hate and child-safety groups, the person added.

In either case, Google said it decides which videos are removed from YouTube. “Any suggestion that a government or any other group can use these flagging tools to remove YouTube content themselves is wrong,” a Google spokesman said.

Google’s guidelines prohibit videos that incite people to commit violence, or that show animal abuse, drug abuse, under-age drinking or bomb making, among other topics. Google maintains a separate system to monitor for copyright infringement.

The news about the super flagger program comes as some governments pressure social-media sites that they blame for civil unrest. In Turkey, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan threatened this month to ban Facebook and YouTube because they “encourage every kind of immorality and espionage for their own ends.”

British officials say they use the program to refer videos to YouTube that they believe have violated the U.K.’s Terrorism Act. These are then prioritized by YouTube, according to Sarah Buxton, a spokeswoman at the U.K. Home Office.

“YouTube may choose to remove legal extremist content if it breaches their terms and conditions,” she added.

Google was not pressured to let the U.K.’s counter-terrorism unit into the program, the person familiar with the program explained. Instead, the government agency showed an interest in YouTube’s guidelines and spotted videos that violated the rules, the person added.

More than 90% of the videos identified by super flaggers are either removed for violating guidelines, or restricted as not appropriate for younger users, the person familiar with the program said. That’s a far higher percentage than regular users who occasionally flag dubious content, the person said.

  1. Provided one is paying attention, should it surprise anyone Google takes advice from the United Kingdom’s Counter-Terrorism authority to flag its posted videos? That bollix ACTA came from Europe after all, and its proponents tried to pass it off to us quietly without any regard for our Constitutional rights. Sadly, I could have guessed something like this.


    • Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to the governments around the world, They all work together…BUT yet they are all fighting right now for that one seat at the top of the New Wold Order, You see their has to be one that has to be second in command, next to the anti-Christ.


      • The saddest thing is none of this is necessary. Is it so hard to let people be themselves and live kindly with neighbors?


      • I know, You are so right…And the other sad thing is most of the people from other countries around the world think it’s the people, And in reality it’s not the people it’s the governments and yes you do have some people that do go along with the governments only because their not awake to what is really going on. I would really like to get to know people from other countries, especially the ones that our governments are fighting with, if only to let them know please know that it’s not the people it’s the government. I love people from all parts of the world. In my eyes they have done nothing wrong. But yes all we need to do is just be kind to each other.
