of a YouTube video into an email along with the video's URL and send
it to a friend.
As I just now discovered, the description can no longer be copied but
all the comments and other crap on YouTube pages can be copied.
Thinking there was some shit cookie or other google garbage on the
Windows system I was using, I checked using 3 other Windows systems
and two linux systems with all experiencing the same problem.
Can you duplicate what I'm now experiencing? Visit this URL:
It's the trailer for the "EUROPA REPORT" movie. Try to copy'n'paste
just the single "Published on May 18, 2013" line.
FWIW, I checked 10 other YouTube URLs from which I previously could
copy'n'paste the description and I can no longer do that.
I wonder what the YouTube clowns are smoking now and why they think
prohibiting copy'n'pasting a description is a good idea.
I don't see anything in comments on the page source indicating what
it is they may have done or any obvious HTML quackery.
And before anyone asks, I killed all instances of Firefox and started
a new instance and the same problem occurs.
Several years ago I experienced something similar on a for-pay web site
from which nothing at all could be copy'n'pasted and I wished I saved
that URL so as to examine its page source.
