Simple solution for Youtube....
Step 1) Youtube sets up a block for all visitors from countries who have these rulings.
Step 2) Youtube releases press releases saying that the threat of being sued is too risky to justify providing services.
Step 3) Citizens of said countries lose their minds over losing access to Youtube.
Many Citizens will demand the country/courts update their laws to allow Youtube to safely provide services to those countries.
Either The countries will change their position or they won't but Youtube/Google needs to stop trying to convince these governing bodies to their way of thinking and let the citizens of those countries make the argument for them.
It isn't up to Youtube to change a countries policies, it is up to the country's citizens to do that. Losing access to things like Youtube and Google images will be enough to get them going.
