PragerU Takes Google to Court Over Restricted YouTube Videos

PragerU, “an online video resource promoting knowledge and clarity on life’s biggest and most interesting topics,” according to its YouTube page, announced the following:

Lawyers will present opening oral arguments Friday, Oct. 25, in Prager University v. Google LLC before the Superior Court of the State of California in Santa Clara. …

Similar to PragerU’s federal case currently awaiting decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the California state lawsuit asserts that Google continues to ‘unlawfully restrict and restrain speech and expression.’ YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, has restricted over 200 PragerU videos, more than 10% of PragerU’s video library, labeling them as ‘dangerous’ or ‘derogatory.’ …

The lawsuit maintains that PragerU’s videos have been restricted, not because they are explicit, vulgar or obscene in nature, or inappropriate for children in any way, but because they promote conservative ideas. …

For more information, read the press release.
