So I was browsing with my keen analytical ability to search up some of my famous rock singers'. Like David Draimen, ZP Theart, or Corey Taylor from Slipknot, to Disturbed, and Dragonforce. I found something that was strange. Very strange, almost half of the video's were missing!
Due to contents from the band. Such as RoadRunner Records and WMG itself. I found myself stunned with a confused face, my first reaction: "What happened to the videos?" Then after browsing alot of forums/Internet providers about WMG. I then relized that people were "Pirating" music from YouTube.
What I want to discuss is the probabilities and factors about YouTube's copyrite protection, or as in, "Terms of Agreements". What happened to the original YouTube? Were we can just go in, upload video's, enjoy ourselves during the process. After the many updates and rules we have encountered it seemed...Well, inevitable.. During the whole updates we found ourselves leading by the head of Google.
YouTube is reported to have created technology that will automatically detect when copyrighted music is used in videos, give Warner the right to accept or reject those videos and will calculate the royalty fees Warner is owed. Financial details haven’t been disclosed yet, but may include a cut of advertising revenue in exchange for licensing rights. It’s also unclear who will pay the royalty fees; that payment may come out of the advertising revenue or it may be demanded of the individual users who have put Warner music in their videos.
Whilst this said, however, in other words YouTube is known as the place to find almost any kind of video clip, recent agreements with high-profile content creators require YouTube to deploy an audio-signature technology that can spot a low-quality copy of a licensed music video or other content. YouTube would have to substitute an approved version of the clip or take the material down automatically.
Do you think YouTube with third party Google is ruining YouTube upload's policies? Or is this just fact that YouTube just sucks in General?
