Let’s petition the BBC to allow clips to be shared

Pete has brought us the sad news that the BBC is seeking to shut down his YouTube account if he continues to post BBC clips there.

This is a very unfortunate development. BBC journalists here in NI are privately very supportive of the way in which Slugger allows the debate on Stormont Live, Hearts and Minds and the Politics Show to continue on-line. It also allows readers in the Republic of Ireland and around the globe who cannot watch through BBC IPlayer access to important public discourse.

I would like to propose we start with a thread – petition which we can pass on to the powers that be in Broadcasting House.

All you need to do is leave your name and an email address. Please pass it on to your friends wheerever they may be.
