Sleep on the important stuff and wake on the dumb stuff
This one guy got copyright claimed by some douchebag for saying a sentence the douchebag said in his own video. Getting copyright claimed for saying words is just ridiculous
@Ald0bii, Dude, I can't remember his name, but a guy made his own song, uploaded it, and had it copyrighted by some douche music company claiming it was theirs. He appealed and lost. Then appealed again for a human to look into it and made sure to include all the proof of it being his song, and again lost. So this music company stole a song and YouTube enabled them to do it. This stupid claiming system needs to die in a bar fire.
@ JCLEMZ, unfortunately in the usa legal system you can create things and other people can copyright them, proving it was your creation would then need to happen in front of a judge, not a corporation.
@ JCLEMZ, that would be TheFatRat and the song in question was "The Calling"
@ JCLEMZ, another guy, Paul Davids, creates just a backing track to practicing guitar stuff over top and uploaded it, someone like a year later copied his backing track and used it for a song, then YouTube went back and copywrited Paul Davids’ original video where he made the backing track. Thankfully that one got resolved but that’s ridiculous
People using the system like it's supposed to be used? Rewind time.
People abusing your broken system? Yaahhh.
"Dislike mobs" for Rebecca Black, the Ghostbusters reboot, Battlefield V, Call of Duty, and probably dozens of other videos
"Dislike mobs" for YouTube Rewind 2018
Vox is copyright claiming people who reacted to the verge pc build, YouTube is getting ridiculous
I feel like a competing platform for videos is going to come out soon. Like it won’t replace YouTube or anything, but so many you tubers aren’t content with the service that a rival company with enough capital could get a lot of traction really quickly by appealing to those creators and offering them a workable alternative.
@80sHades, it would be really difficult. The initial start up would be really hard. The sheer traffic and amount of content that youtube deals with is insane. It's like 300 hours are uploaded a minute. Youtube couldn't work if it wasn't owned by Google. And it's hard to woo new investors to invest THAT heavily when youtube is showing how difficult it is to properly monetize
There was a guy who uploaded a livestream and later got copyrighted for saying ‘Hey guys’.
