GEMA versus YouTube's Top 1000

A lot of YouTube videos can't be seen in other countries.
Almost 19% of the world's top 1000 videos are blocked in one or more countries outside Germany.
In Germany, however over 60% of the 1000 most popular videos are not available, because YouTube assumes that the music rights are "maybe" owned by the music collecting society GEMA.
