YouTube banned my videos from Winter Olympics opening ceremony

Yes, banned. The videos in my previous post do not work any more. Sorry for that. They have been banned in YouTube. I received this e-mail today: "Your video Richie Hawtin @ Torino 2006 (2 of 2) has been rejected due to its inappropriate nature. Please refer to our terms and conditions for more information on what video material is not permitted on YouTube."
No more explanations. No way to reply that e-mail. No defence possible. Of course, as you can suppose, a video with a excerpt from the Opening Ceremony of Torino 2006 does not contain obscenity nor drug abuse. Copyright? it was recorded from a public television, the spanish TVE2. There are millions of videos in YouTube that contain similar material, like sport events, so I don't understand a damn thing.
[UPDATE: I have rechecked a bit and it seems that all videos related to Torino 2006 are being banned at YouTube. It seems that someone from the Olympics Committe or something told them to remove the videos. Oh, how lovely are those people, aren't they?]

Hey, i found a way to listen to Richie's opening ceremony composition. Go to youtube and look for Torino 2006 Roberto Bolle. U will find a 9.30 min opening dance that "9.20" was composed for :)
