It's mainly the fault of YouTube's bot that was introduced in 2016, all it does is check your video to see if anything in your video matches something that is copyrighted that was posted to YouTube by a company regardless if it is legal under "Fair Use" or not. For example; I recently made a Try Not To Sing Or Dance Anime Edition video. The second it was uploaded, banned worldwide even though there are literally hundreds of videos that are similar that are still up and making money. When I sent an appeal and notified YouTube's team on Twitter, the said they would review it. They didn't do anything for over a month. I sent another appeal yesterday and when I woke up today, the video was removed and I got an official copyright strike on my channel. So basically, YouTube doesn't care if it's legal or not and neither do the copyright holders. Also, I'm pretty sure they just want to weed out the smaller channels like mine. I have gone more in depth into this issue on my last video and it also includes a link to a petition to remove the bot causing all these issues https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZA4P_b2CVUU&t=1s

All what you said about FarUse is right... But that mentality at the introduction of "Magical Copies" is exactly why we have to deal with shits like "Article 13"... It is because entitled PC "masterrace" PCerdos (spanish insult to PC players, I guess PigC can work in english) that companies get mad about SOOOO MUCH piracy that end letting the government to have way too much control about everything in order to try to stop abuse of Pirates... The same cancerous mentality is produced by Streaming Services like NetFlix... AND YES, you are paying... but you really think your monthly payment is enough to cover the WHOLE STAFF behind that product you are consuming!?... Just look the example of damn SJW CrunchyRoll... Those bastard said that tbey will give money to Japanese Companies to produce more Anime, and in the end the only give like $5.000 and that onky works for ONE episode of ONE show... and you are paying like $20... Is that fair!?.... That is why the best way to give the creator what they deserve is BUYING the individual BluRay, Games, Books, etc... SJW are selfish bastard that only "think" in their "feelings"... and for that if stilling feels good then is good for them... They are completely retarded and hopeless... But the morons who want free stuff without a reason are WORST than SJW... When you say "Magically coping a Car" you sound completely retarded OR cynical as hell because YOU KNOW that magic doesn't exist and those ideas that you don't want to pay for DONT BELONG TO YOU!!!... Wait 100 years so it can end in public domain and do what ever you want then!... Because you ARE NOT entitled to those "free" stuff, you PARASITE!... And I repeat, YES! It is absurd that you can use footage or anything in a review nowadays, but it is because morons like you who think "Everything should be free....for me" who are to blame for Article 13... because if you was enough mature to accept reality and you don't deserve everything in live JUST because you want it... and then you criticise Communists... hypocrite... Listen Mr NotComputing, I lived in Venezuela, aka Pirate Landia 2 (after China of course) Do you know how sad is that we never get original / legal copies of ANY movies because "They are to expensive" ?... And because of that we don't get games in our language... And we had to import everything by CADIVI the damn few dolars that the government use to gave use to expend ONLY we were going to travel or buying through internet and it was limited per year... Can you image trying to be honest and pay for you stuff in a shitty country like this with morality!?... Precisely now we can NOT buy even a pirate DVD because by the selfish of Venezuelan that never care about doing thing right!... now the dictatorship send use to the hell that Venezuelan deserve because they wanted free shit and now we have only free shit everywhere... I still have my 19 Bluray movies and my 32 DVD original... but now, I can't even buy a fucking ice cream!... my shitty internet service is cheaper than a Pepsi of 2 liters... so Im fucked thanks to retarded lefties and selfish morons like YOU who just want free stuff... Enjoy Hour Article 13, parasito Cabron!

How can Youtube allow itself to act as copyright police? There *IS* no copyright police. If CBS or whoever wants to protect their copyright _(which should only lie in the hands of the creator and for no more than eg. 20 years from _*_creation,_*_ not death)_ then they must go to court if they think that it has been violated. That's what an author must do.

Copyright laws like any laws are terribly slow at keeping up with modern times and unfortunately NEVER will catch up..... So the law needs to be written as such that if a claim is made its up to the claimant to prove that they are losing money by what they are making a claim against because we all know in the end its about money.... A man showing 5 sec clips from a show from 10+ years ago is hardly killing their income...… infact he definitely is making them more money

I don't support piracy of any kind, but I do want the companies who put out content to respect their users. I collect BDs and DVDs, and the amount of DRM on the former is still so atrocious that I can't usually so much as create a backup of the content on the disc or view it with open source software like VLC. It doesn't make sense to punish the people who buy these things to support the content creators.

Just because you don't care about your content and images being used without compensation . Not everyone feels the same. You speak about huge company's but you see to forget about about individual artist who make content .. Photo's and images and words and sounds.. I understand the fair use argument.But if someone is making money off my images.. Whats wrong with me being compensated. ?

Actually, the character of Sherlock Holmes and most of the surrounding mytbos, including Watson, Moriarty and the Hound of the Baskervilles, have been in the public domain for many decades. What most recently became public domain was only the last few stories in the Holmes canon, which contained just the last few details such as the fact that Holmes retired to the back country to become a beekeeper in his old age. The Doyle estate was hanging on to just a rather small part of the Holmes canon. The larger part that was public domain has allowed the excellent genre of Holmes pastiches to flourish since at least the 1970s. Those stories just tried not to reference the still-copyrighted stories too directly. But I think it is wonderful that now we can use the entire Holmes canon to build new adventures without worry. Also, many omnibus editions have been published over the years which have omitted the copyrighted stories. I think it's great that now, most new print editions will have the complete canon.

You can also end so called hate by looking at past content new content with likes dislikes , If someone has done 100 videos had 3 hate clams on them then gets a 4th hate clam on video 101 this shows it was not real. This is how you look for workers irl by looking at there past to understand there future basic math.

YouTube is able to match audio and video 1 to 1 , So they can look at the times the content was fully cbs and the time it was not fully cbs with audio over it and just a 10 sec clip. So over time YouTube could put a stop to this night and 100% protect copyright laws. Also CPS brakes the law so there should be a 100$ - 50,000$ fee via net income.

Unfortunately it is not "the movie industry" and "the media" who gets Special Treatment, as there are quite a few exceptions. The answer is more like this: (((YouTube))) gives Special Treatment to (((the movie industry))) (but not to the movie industry in general) and to (((the media))) (but not to the media in general).

I like your idea of copyright for the life of the creator + 20 years. That allows the creator and his 1st generation descendants to enjoy the fruits of their idea (assuming they don’t squander it) but allow the creative use of the thing in question by all of humanity - including corporates.

Ok,I'll throw you a counter point. Does becoming public domain degrade the value of an intellectual property? There are many songs in the public domain but many aren't really used much. How many old cartoon characters have fallen into the public domain but aren't used for anything,even though people still recognize them? So most are either old or not really popular. By extension,how many times have we seen great characters and stories mutilated by other people? How does one define canon when anyone can do anything with the character? It would be difficult to define Dracula's "canon" with all the "X meets Dracula" type of cheap cash ins. How does one stop others from using intellectual property they made in a public domain canon? So clearly,simply allowing copyright to expire brings it's own problems. Personally,I think IP should last as long as the creator of said property is alive. Once they die,even if they signed the rights over to someone else,the main copyright expires. At which point the IP can be claimed if A) someone else currently held the copyright or B) some kind of heir to the estate is left the copyright. Otherwise,it's immediately public domain. Since the original creator of a work can no longer provide any oversight of it. Once the creator dies,the IP can be optioned for a secondary copyright. Secondary copyright means that the holder can do what they want with it,but it expires after 50 years. No options. No extensions. So most of us won't live to see Star Wars become public domain. Or most pop culture either. But other,older properties will and at least it will mean an end to a lot of old IPs being held for ransom,like Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was. Still,I can't help but wonder why no one digs up those old public domain characters and properties and do something with them.

The thing with gaming is that in most cases ANY coverage is good for their game (even negative). I still get copyright claims on a lot of games, but EVERY single one of them is done by the music copyright owners who happen to have their music in the game. It's super annoying, and unfair to the games with said music, since disabling the music takes a lot away from some games.

I haven't made new videos since 2014, with or without original content. Here's why. It's just no fun to make anything with the constant fear of someone claiming ownership over the tiniest of details in your video because "it costs them revenue". That's a serious limitation on how much one can contribute in terms of creativity.
Frank Berry (4 months ago)
Another reason that studios will want to defend and extend copyright is to ensure their ideologies are the only ones available to the public. For example, no matter how entertaining a story based on Star Trek/Star Wars might be, if it isn't in tune with the 'all men are wastes of space' brigade, it will never see the light of day.

Why shouldn't it listen and believe the entertianment industry after all it's trying to become it, what with hiring real actors and comedians who have already made a name for themselves in hollywood to edge out youtube creators for youtube red. I mean this doesn't surprise me they want to be the new hollywood which means playing ball when a big studios claims a video.

Blame Walt Disney company, after Walt passed away in December 1966, the Disney Company as well as other Movie and Music companies in America lobbied the American Government to bring in Copyright Laws and most of these companies these days are breaking Fair Use Laws. And the Disney company made most of their money from animated films based on fairy tales that were originally created centuries ago.

I am somewhat sympathetic to copyright laws as I have made films that I would LIKE to make money off of. The idea of my years of work ending up on the internet for free (where I and my crew who made the films get no kickback) does bother me. It's like if someone paints some beautiful painting and wants to sell it. But you come in and take a high def photo of the painting instead and make it available. Yeah, the artist still has his but you DID basically rob him.

The way to solve the copyright problem is just to let them expire after 14 years like originally intended, the only problem is corporations are subverting the law, it's not so much a copyright problem as it is a lobbying problem.

DS9 competes with Star Trek Discovery. It is the same exact thing as the Star Wars sequel trilogy and the Star Trek reboot, where the old heroes were torn down to elevate the new ones. I'm sure if Razorfist liked Star Trek discovery, CBS would endorse his DS9 videos. As is, he's making the comparison and STD is found wanting.

3:33 And they also prevent works from being conserved. Since some of them are still on rapidly degrading nitro celluloid and you aren't allowed to preserve these till long after it is way too late ... THANKS DISNEY AND YOUR FUCKING MOUSE (couldn't have they gone the way of a trademark? why did it had to be copyright?) Anyhow anything than 15 years after publishing is a perversion ... and any prolonged period after death of the creator is necrophilia. Just to remind you: The Hollywood industry was build (and build there) and grew on patent and copyright violations.

Post your videos on DTUBE as well as on YouTube. Leave a link to the DTUBE video in the description and tell people to use the DTUBE link in your video. That way, you'll still get the exposure of YT, you'll earn STEEM tokens for views of you video at DTUBE and you'll encourage people to ABANDON YOUTUBE. The more money YT loses, the less they will be willing to just side with corporate psychopaths.

copyright should be limited to 10 years, maximum, that's it....and it should deal specifically with physical object. Most movies and games have a "presale" model for them to gain millions within the first week of sales....I don't see the problem with having no protection for "virtual" product, they have their week, model accordingly.

You can't copy and paste a car to your driveway. Small business designs and creates a wildly successful product. They fail to copyright their works. Big corporation comes in and creates a *friendship* and the two collaborate on several special high profile projects. Suddenly small corp sees big corp release it's own product, a darn near exact copy and protests. Big corp with deep pockets and in-house lawyers, steals the products, legally makes the creator cease and desis and even legally forces them to apologize to the thief corp in a public fashion for having their intellectual and physical products stolen from them. This is a true story by the way. I understand your position on fair use and I completely agree. However copyright laws are necessary. In the case of the EU, they are going too far. The scary part is many are lobbying for and demonstrating for a 1984 state. I thought surely Britain was on the right track with Brexit until their government found a way to undo the voter. Why they aren't in the streets protesting I don't understand. The stiff upper lip will get you knocked flat on your ass.

I always thought Napster was good for business when I started using it back in 2000, before it got slammed. AFAICT it was a way for me to find new music and sample it, and later buy the CD if I liked it. To make matters worse (for the music industry, didn't affect the downloaders at all) the music industry started making CD's more expensive, and this imo drove down sales and just ramped up downloading... bottom line, the music industry panicked and then shot themselves in the foot. :l

But why are clips allowed? Fair Use?

It's not just the film and video game industry - copyright laws are ruining the music industry too. Do you remember the famous suit against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke, by the Gaye estate, in 2014 for the song "Blurred Lines"? Marvin Gaye has been dead for over 30 years - his family have already become incredibly rich from his music sales (which they themselves did not create). They had absolutely no right to sue them. Especially when considering how the original song which they claimed had been violated had no protectable elements that were stolen - it was the "feel" that was stolen apparently. There are so many more examples of this - the 21st century is the worst time ever to be a pop star. Ed Sheeran has been hit with two high profile lawsuits. Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" was gang-raped by so many disco guru copyright stakeholders that he practically makes no money from it anymore. Copyright laws are a gravy-train for greedy, unscrupulous lawyers, big businesses, and rich old creators who are too lazy to write new material. They currently benefit nobody at the bottom, only those at the top. They are bullshit, and they need to be reformed.

It wouldn't matter what the law was or where, CBS/Paramount has had a "cut our nose off to spite our face" policy in place for the Star Trek properties since about 1972. It is clear they don't intend to change, look at the Axanar controversy which while not cut and dried was still handled more as if their name was Palpatine rather than Khan. When the copyright expires CBS/Paramount will figure out a way to extend it, somehow. In that respect they are WAY out ahead of the comicsgate hubbub and Kennedy's Star Wars in dumping all over their greatest fans.

As an independent author of fantasy and sci-fi I have to admit that I do feel a little annoyed that I loose a certain amount of money to illegal downloads of my novels, only because what money I do receive from sales goes directly back into publishing more books, otherwise I've always had a very open opinion on sharing stories, ideas and worlds. I did, however, decide to independently publish because I wanted to keep my own identical rights - selling to a big business is a terrifying thing. So there are pros and cons. It's a complicated world out there. ^_^

0:26 _"The copying of a car"_ is a broken analogy. However, what you've done there is annoying because I would agree with you that the name piracy is a bullshit name for it. If (and that is an "if") it is going to be illegal, then it would be called _"intellectual property infringement"_ (and not all Intellectual Property is called copyright). The word "piracy" is inappropriate. Yes, that DVD "PSA" used a shite analogy, but so did you. As Stefan Molyneux has said before, the first pill costs millions of dollars to make, and yet the second pill costs pennies. So your analogy doesn't work. However, what constitutes the reason for the first pill to be so costly is debateable. A lot of IP Law and legislation stifles the little guy when only large companies can afford the cost to register trademarks (per country) and patents (an patents tend to only last 5 to 20 years). It could be argues that a patent can be used to protect open source if the author of it chooses to release the patent into the public domain after some years (so let's say 4 years). It proves the author was the origin and it can be said it authorises them to release it. Personally, considering private ownership can be eroded severly by monetary systems, I think sometimes _"Intellectual Authority"_ is a better term. The find the audit trail back to the origin of a discovery isa quest for the truth. To veto that with money is the failure to prevent the of the burning of the library of alexandra. A man who chases two rabbits catches none. Truth or something else. Pick one. Technology has eroded the landscape and a great many of these bunch of copyright "laws" are not the way forward. The majority of changes to law have historically been clauses to existing laws. This massive bulk-buy creation of new laws is hamfisted. Some large companies (including car makers) have backed down over IP infringement when it is China doing it. An example is in the ADVChina video from 5th January 2016 with _"How Bad is Piracy in China?"_ as the title. The public uproar in China against Chevy's legal case was massive and they essentially had the power to severly reduce (if not entirely destoy) the sales of the original "copied" Chevy car. There is something that seems unfair about the way only the little guy (not massive China) gets taken to task. However, whether it is morally right or wrong, what that China incident can tell you is these large companies' legal actions can be slain. They can be slain, and people don't need an entire China in order to do so. As an aside, your comparison to video games having their _Let's Play_ footage captured (not including cutscenes) is not the same as sampling a DVD movie. A lot of games have IP in the form of patents. Not all the patents extend to all countries. Some may only be USA and others only protected in UK. However, even if a game's patent is protected worldwide, there is sometimes a good chance you are not infringing on it because it may require the user to control something. An example is the arrow showing you where to drive in the _Simpsons Hit and Run_ game. Even though can see it, your video's viewers do not control it. If however you were to make a game close to it, then the most important parts of the game's IP might well be infringed upon, and then you'd probably get some sort of legal issue. My guess is the authors are prioritsing that. In brief, your car analogy is terrible. Please copy a better analogy off somebody else (under fair use of course).

Copyright, the very concept of copyright is evil. The only reason we have property is because of scarcity. Scarcity is why we must be prudent with our goods, it is why there are prices

Dave, you can haul their asses to court, which I would suggest you do because YouTube is in violation of the United States laws in which their HQ is in California.

The extension of copyright times is scandalous. It should certainly never extend beyond a length that covers the creator's lifetime.

That which can be done to find the right balance is the following: 1) Make your own bloody game//film. Boycott and stop playing and viewing ANY AND EVERY copyrighted game and film. Stop being so goddamn obsessed and drugged out over these stupid games and shitty films. 2) Go outside and play with your friends. Get off the fucking computer and do something creative. Just saying.

This is why I was initially angry at Axanar for not letting the courts decide. I understand he wanted to get it behind him but I think it could have struck down many actions by CBS.

If I crib answers on a test from the top student in my class, without their knowledge or consent, then I'm considered to have stolen their work, even though they will still enjoy just as much benefit from having studied. They'll still get the 'A' they studied for, but having copied their work, _I'll_ get an 'A' that they studied for, too. Leaving aside the value of education for its own sake, and how important it is for me to learn and not just copy, I'm not sure how this is morally okay. Now, I'm fully on board with the idea of it being terrible that powerful interests routinely abuse, twist, mutilate, and manipulate copyright laws as they stand like nobody's business,, but I'm really confused how people can say with a straight face that only tangible objects can be stolen.

I wonder if they strike videos of the people who give them ultimate praise.

Funny is how Hollywood constantly copies from old works, but pushes for eternal copy right. Always taking without giving is how modern economy works it seems.

You had it absolutely right re: copyright law: Originally 14, then 28, then allowed another renewal of 28, then 70 years after death of author, etc., etc. Yes; every time the Copyrights are about to FINALLY expire, the large companies lobby congress to change/extend the laws. e.g. the 1976 Act (taking place on 1/1/78), which removed the Published or Registered requirement. And for works before '78, they had to be renewed on the 28th year to get 95 years of protection, BUT, the Copyright Renewal Act of 1992, made renewal automatic. Etc., etc., again. As it stands, works before 1978 may be protected until 2047, so far... As for Article 13: It really has nothing to do with copyrights, and EVERYTHING to do with controlling the Internet and people's voices.

I always found it ironic that I purchase a DVD and then I have it suggesting that burned copies are bad....I already bought your movie...I'm not a thief, why would you suggest that I am one. People who burn movies, don't care.
