YouTube Removes 3D-Printed Automatic Rifle Magazine Footage

A popular video showing off a 3D-printed automatic rifle magazine was removed Friday "as a violation of YouTube's policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content." Mashable reports.

... Wilson told Mashable in an e-mail that he's attempting to re-upload the video to YouTube, but it's automatically rejecting the footage. He's now attempting to host the footage on an alternative service.quotesmarksleft.jpg

At the time of posting on this blog, the video on the Defense Distributed website still links to the YouTube video with the removal notice.
