After YouTube removed several videos of the corona protest action #allesaufdentisch, a court ordered the decision to be reversed. In one case, the video portal has now done so.

Google's video platform YouTube has uploaded a deleted clip of the controversial campaign #allesaufdentisch again.

"After another check, we found that one of the videos does not violate our guidelines," said a spokesman for the dpa news agency.

"This video has been retired."

The decision followed a legal skirmish between the initiators and the Google subsidiary.

At the request of the artist group, the Cologne district court issued an urgent decision on two of the three deleted clips.

YouTube did not tell the channel operators specifically enough which passages in their opinion violated which provision of their guidelines, said a court spokeswoman.

The videos were therefore wrongly deleted.

YouTube could now appeal the decision in an urgent procedure.

Then the civil division of the regional court would hear the matter.

However, the company did not comment on legal issues when asked.

Conspiracy ideological narratives

The #allesaufdentisch internet campaign, initiated by actor Volker Bruch (“Babylon Berlin”) among others, was launched at the end of September.

In many videos that were uploaded online, the Corona measures and the media reporting about them are criticized, among other things.

Critics accuse the makers of using conspiracy-ideological narratives.

The video series is reminiscent of an action that had caused a sensation months before: At that time, under the hashtag #allesdichtmachen, well-known stars from the film scene criticized the handling of the corona virus with satirical videos.

After widespread criticism, several participants distanced themselves from the protest shortly afterwards.
