"YouTube’s tagline is “Broadcast Yourself.”64 People around the world have taken up the invitation, including people whose lives are being lived out in conflict zones. Proponents of international criminal justice have seized upon the resulting material for its evidentiary value, and we are seeing the field of international criminal investigations in the midst of a major transformation as a consequence. There has been plenty of commentary about this transformation in terms of the challenges and opportunities that the evidence itself brings. But less attention has been given to what these technology-driven developments have done to expand the range of actors within the broader ecosystem in which international criminal investigations operate. Relying on digital evidence also means relying on the platforms who host it." (page 223)
