Reasons not to use Google
Youtube's "content ID"
automatically deletes posted videos in a way
copyright law does not require.
Google Groups and Google+ Communities require the use of nonfree
Youtube requires nonfree
not a good way to distribute video. (Most sites specifically for

LibreJS), you'll see that you should not use thos services.
