I recently saw this post:
Whilst far from being the most perfect of questions [sigh], within seconds, it was made invalid and unanswerable due to an edited(removed) link stating "copyright violation". Whilst I understand that copyrighted material is potentially an issue, the link/site in question included embedded youtube content that cannot directly be judged as having potential copyright infringement.
An editing user (unless reasonably qualified) can't possibly know if the site in question contains copyrighted material unless he/she has direct knowledge of MOU's/contracts that may exist between parties.
Furthermore, many posts contain links to live/working examples - sometimes (wishfully) in addition to pasted code and JSfiddles etc. Are such links to live example to be treated the same?
To what extend should users/editor's ideally treat such links or the content that exists within?
