Automatic or Manually Assisted: Manually Assisted, supervised
Programming Language(s): python or AWB (whichever is better depending on situation AWB seems more sane)
Function Summary: Remove illegal links such as youtube links that are in violation of copyrights.
Edit period(s)(e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): Manual run when necesary
Edit rate requested: less than 10 edits per minute
Already has a bot flag(Y/N): Y
Function Details: Bot will be used to help remove external links to youtube or any other illegal site (in violation of copyrights). This is something I can do regularly with AWB but I'd prefer using the bot account. In some cases some illegal links maybe inserted in bulk quantities which bot removal would be handy. -- Catchi? 13:56, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Erm...ALL youtube links? --uǝʌǝsʎʇɹnoɟʇs(st47) 13:53, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
No just the illegal ones such as linking to TV episodes on TV episode articles. (Assuming the TV episode is not released with a free license). And not just youtube links but other garbage such as spam. I want to have some leniency in the scope to deal with garbage. -- Catchi? 13:56, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
And how will the bot determine which are good and which are bad? --uǝʌǝsʎʇɹnoɟʇs(st47) 13:56, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Many studios now upload to Youtube and other sites, how can you be sure the copyright is being violated? BJTalk 13:57, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
I will be looking at it. I would review each link individually. And bulk remove the same link if it has been inserted multiple times. Determining copyright of the yutube video isn't that hard. I'll be using methods people who had been using so far. -- Catchi? 13:59, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Request Expired. Marking request as expired as it was either never transcluded to Wikipedia:BRFA or has had no attention for some time. Richard0612 12:22, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
