Default The Death Of DavidsFarm?

I've been subscribed to this guy on YouTube for quite a while, and last night he posted a video of cops raiding his farm and he could possibly be shut down.

This is the news article that was on the front page of their newspaper today, and there is also a video on there.

London man becomes YouTube star
&nbspavid Rock and his YouTube channel "Davidsfarm" are bringing in more than $10,000 a month making...


LUCAN -- His Internet videos have been watched 50 million times worldwide, but yesterday David Rock attracted unwanted attention from local officials who could shut down his growing YouTube empire.

Concerns the wrecked cars and trucks Rock keeps on his local farm breach a Lucan-Biddulph bylaw prompted an investigation yesterday at the property, where he films the humorous vehicle-stunt videos that have made him one of the world's most popular Internet celebrities.
Rock, though, argues the township's tidy yard bylaw that prohibits inoperative, dismantled or wrecked vehicles doesn't apply to the property he calls "the world's most famous farm."
"All these cars are in working condition and they're movie props," said Rock, 47.
Rock has spent years grooming trails and building ramps for the driving stunts.



"If I don't have cars to make videos with, I'm not (posting videos) on YouTube anymore, I wouldn't have anything to videotape anymore."
The loss to Rock, a trained machinist who has modified all the cars himself, could be huge: He's drawing millions of viewers to his online videos and, through a profit-sharing agreement with YouTube, could soon be making $200,000 a year.
Though he admits the vehicle fleet does look like a scrapyard, Rock calls the beat-up cars, trucks and buses key components of an Internet sensation he says is making the community world-renowned.
"The only thing Lucan is famous for is a mass murder in the 1800s," he said. "I've made Lucan famous on a global scale, not just a local scale."
Rock's boasts may sound hard to believe, but Google, which owns YouTube, confirmed them: As of yesterday, this week he was the most-viewed Canadian content provider, with nearly four times as many views as No. 2, and he sat at No. 30 worldwide.
The most popular of his 1,000 videos is a 39-second clip of a jeep racing up an impossibly steep hill Rock built. As of yesterday, it had 1.3 million views.
Ron Reymer, Lucan Biddulph's chief administrative officer, suggested the popularity of the videos was a surprise to township officials investigating complaints about the property's tidiness.
"I'm starting to realize" the extent of it, he said. "You just Google him."
The "YouTube antics" are not a surprise to police, said OPP Const. Doug Graham, who stressed officers yesterday were just escorting the bylaw official, not conducting a criminal probe.
Under the bylaw, a property owner has up to 45 days to comply with a warning. Township officials can then clear the property themselves.
Rock expects he'll be charged with breaching the bylaw, and if so, he says, he'll fight the allegations in court.
Here is a link to his YouTube channel, and no I haven't seen every single video of his, but I have seen a lot of them.

If they do shut him down I will be sad because I enjoy watching his videos.
