Are Copyright Laws Killing Wider Access To Dance?

“The YouTube Ketinoa channel contained over 1300 videos of Mariinsky & Bolshoi ballets. Last month this channel was suspended because it was found to contain a small subset of copyright protected videos featuring ballets by Balanchine. The claim was submitted on behalf of the Balanchine Trust, the body in charge of protecting the legacy of that choreographer.”
