YouTube is not a "public forum" that must guarantee users' rights to free speech, a US court has ruled.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
The case involved right-wing channel PragerU, which argued YouTube was infringing its rights by "censoring" its conservative views.
But judges decided that the US constitution's First Amendment did not apply to YouTube, a private company.
The landmark ruling by US judges could affect future cases involving freedom of speech online.
The decision, by San Francisco's Ninth Circuit appeals court, rejected the conservative news outlet's claims that YouTube had breached the First Amendment by censoring its content.
PragerU said it was still "not done fighting for free speech" and the appeals court "got this one wrong".
