If you’ve seen the image above before is probably because you live in Germany and are also tired of fucking GEMA.
Good ol Malte Götz is a 17 years old high school student, programmer and web developer from Germany. He has come up with an free addon for Firefox, ‘ProxTube’, which easily unblocks all the videos in youtube that GEMA decided that you should not see. In his own words…
I was just annoyed time by time to find a solution to watch a blocked video. Also, I don’t want to accept the decision of the GEMA (Society for musical performing and mechanical reproduction rights in Germany), which totally unreasonable demands on YouTube and against the opinion of most of their own members, that they can tell me what I can watch. I gladly pay for music but in my view, YouTube is much more a kind of platform where artists can picture themselves and promote the purchase of the songs. Accordingly, I’ve worked on a solution that should make it easier, as well for a user that has no large background knowledge, and also not unlawful. The result is this addon.
