Germans should now be able to view all videos on Youtube containing copyrighted music.

http://www.dw.com/en/deal-brings-fre...any/a-36219529

Many road videographers (including me) had almost all their videos blocked in Germany only.

I hope Youtube will also do something about making all videos viewable on mobile devices as well. Although you can use copyrighted music in a Youtube video, it's not always accessible on a mobile device (phone, tablet).

Germany has turned a bit better now, but I still consider it the worst country in Europe, the only good thing they have is beer. And no speed limits on the autobahn, but that is only in theory, as there are so many construction zones the fastest way to travel around Germany by car is taking as many back roads as possible.

Sixty years ago, on 4th November 1956 the Soviet army invaded Budapest and repressed the Hungarian fight for liberty.
Hundreds of freedom fighters were executed aftermath, including prime minister Imre Nagy.

98 years ago, the armistice of Villa Giusti endend WWI, with Italian victory over Austro-Hungarian forces.
The day before, the Audace was the first Italian military ship to dock in Trieste port.
4 November is still the festivity of Italian armed forces, although it stopped being a civil holyday in 1977.

Knowledge of World War I is generally limited in the Netherlands. The country was not directly affected by warfare and it is overshadowed by World War II.

Though knowledge of World War II is also limited beyond Western Europe, not many people know much about the Eastern Front or Pacific Theater other than Stalingrad, Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Even knowledge about the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies is fading away, otherwise than 'it happened'.

Few people today know that the Netherlands had colonies in places like Brazil, Taiwan or Mauritius.

The colonization of Suriname was part of a larger colonization of the Americas by the Dutch. They held quite a large area of northeast Brazil in the 17th century.

It's interesting that Suriname had almost no indigenous population prior to colonization. Most Surinamese people are descendents from what we now call Africa, India and Indonesia. Today the indigenous people of Suriname amount to less than 4% of the population. So Suriname is very diverse, as is the Surinamese population that lives in the Netherlands.

The Dutch East Indies was a colony until 1949. An independence war broke out immediately after World War II ended, and the Netherlands being occupied until a few months prior, could not mount a significant military operation to put the uprise down, which resulted in Indonesian independence. Papua New Guinea remained under Dutch administration until 1962 though.

Well, Italy occupied Albania 1939-1943 and many Albanians emigrated to Italy, so maybe that's why they copy Italians.
