Like witness system used by bitshares, yoyow has a similar system called “Council”.The members of Council are elected by stakeholders of the platform. Except for generating blocks, etc. the Council also has the right of removing content from the Blockchain if the content violates the law. BUT the removal right can only be used when majority is reached in the Council.
