Is it true that Germans can't see half of youtube?

I have a new German friend. When I pass her Russian videos, she complains about censorship and GEMA.

Considering that half the forum is German, they are being very silent about not being able to see any youtubes.

Well, that's an interesting job that Mr Proxytube has given himself.

Australia doesn't seem to have many videos blocked. I rip most via USA servers, which also seem to have no problem.

Looks like this is using a US IP,so it won't get me any additional blocked content. Anyone know of something similar that will get me blocked-in-US videos?
