Copyright infringement? They are available on Netflix, Amazon streaming, Blu-ray, DVD and, I believe, Star Trek.com.

Exactly. They were removed because they were there illegally.

I thought the episodes were uploaded by CBS.

No, not those. The only legit ones are on sites partnered with CBS, and Youtube isn't one of them.

Hulu also has the first season available to watch for free.

Thanks.

I have the Star Trek Comics DVD. I figured I would periodically make avatars out of some of the artwork.

Yeah...given how easy it is to get TOS right now we really can't complain if they get pulled from youtube.

As a tiny, tiny part in the creative class, I am glad when anything gets pulled for copyright infringement.

Oh, no. And it was so difficult to view the series any other way. I mean it's not like there was a legitimate, affordable DVD release of it available. Tragic.

I wouldn't be so hard on the original poster. She probably didn't understand that the YouTube versions were likely in violation of CBS' copyright.

I'm pretty sure that CBS themselves had full episodes posted on YouTube, at some point within the past few years or decade, but they seem to have reversed course on that.

You and EnsignTOS are correct; simply visiting the page where the episodes were posted would make it perfectly obvious they were legit:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/SWZk2dX5DnW_c

The clips that are there now were always present and would be just as much of a copyright violation as the full episodes. The episodes have been up for only the last few months and just came down in the last week; I know because I used to play them on my iPad as I nodded off to sleep. =(

The episodes were the 1985 transfers (i.e. not TOS-R) and strangely several episodes were missing (I Mudd, A Private Little War, Assignment: Earth, ...And The Children Shall Lead). CBS probably felt comfortable posting them on YouTube since they were not TOS-R, only 360P, and could not be downloaded. They apparently had second thoughts for whatever reason.
