why do they delete very old films on youtube

old films which you would think were in the public domain now, i really enjoyed watching old films from the 50s and 60s, old black and white films, surely they are all in the public domain now, yet stupid youtube management deletes many of the films!!
Thats why i buy the physical copy of the movie or music

Are they available to buy or rent? Money to be made
I have used YouTube to look at very old films a lot. If they are being removed? It is so that the newer stuff that they get money from, might be watched if the classics are removed. There’s a lot of old Alfred Hitchcock. Or has that been removed to

There is a coming push by the establishment to deny that movies were ever done in black and white.
@TheEmperor there's a conspiracy to deny the existence of B&W movies?!
Well I guess the Deep State will be confiscating my DVD collection any day now....

There used to be lots of films and music by those now long dead that were wonderful discoveries if you came across them in your research.
I suspect YouTube bought the rights and intends to charge anyone wanting to see/hear.
They come down hard on the side of big movie studios and music studios against little people like you and me.
