Google to filter YouTube

Google Inc. is set to start filtering videos and other content on YouTube for copyrighted materials, taking a key step in helping the online video-sharing site comply with one of the biggest complaints it faces — rampant piracy


According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

It was bound to happen with the "rampant piracy", which is actually a pretty good description of it. I'm personally against all of this, but it's a wise decision on Google's part.

What really sucks is that I have a YouTube channel and I uploaded like six movies, and among my subscriptions was a guy who uploaded lots of hard to find 80s horror flicks and slasher, some of which didn't even get a DVD release. He got suspended. I've had my account since 6.6.06 (teehee) and if I get closed down, it's gonna suck.

But I'm gonna get an account at a less regulated video hosting site before that happens. Which just goes to show, the War on Piracy will prove to be just as useless and counter-productive as the War on Drugs and the War on Terror.

so if there's a video in another website, you can't post it one Youtube?


Any video that is copyrighted and uploaded without explicit permission from the rights holder won't be allowed. They never were allowed. but YouTube did a crappy job of screening them. They're just ramping up the effort.

Well, at least it'll get rid of Vincent745 and his "Sarcastic Hate Speech."

Teedley-hee!


Seriously, though, does this mean I can't watch like, television shows?

This has been happening for a long time now.

Most recently Viacom decided Youtube was broadcasting too much 'copyrighted' material. Now almost every Colbert Report or other Viacom owned clip just sends you to the main page and says that it's been removed due to copyright violation.

Here's my thing. I have a DVR, or TIVO as most people know them as, so I never watch live TV or commercials, and I can promise you that goes for everyone else who owns a DVR. I think quick 30 second/minute long clips you can embed on pages like Myspace is the best advertising Viacom is going to get. Does this mean someone's not going to go to iTunes and buy the entire show? Sure, but I think getting greater awareness will lead to a much better payoff than risking a few people not paying for the episode. Not only that, but you can still go on the network's website and watch the episode there for free... Look at NBC.

I do agree that entire episodes shouldn't be allowed, but I think restricting all of the content is kicking themselves in the ass.

I used to like Google, and still do to an extent, but now that they're a traded company, they have investors to look out for and have to cover themselves. They aren't the grass roots 'good guy/for the people' type of company we all fell in love with.

My other issue with Google is that when you search for something, rather than getting decent helpful results, you get links to buy crap.

Time to move on I guess...

Do you know that music videos and live videos, series episodes are also copyrighted material? If they really go all the way, they will probably lose at least half of their users. I for one will be among the first to leave when the filters hit.

i've already started to notice things like this going on on YouTube..... i went to watch a live performance (i believe it was a version of muse - plug in baby) and it said "this video is no longer available as to subject of Viacom copyright laws" or something of the sort.... maybe it was becasue it was from a dvd directly or maybe they just didn't want it up.... well, i guess it was bound to happen, google spent big bucks on it and doenst want to have to shell out any more in lawsuits

Foo, YouTube isn't the ONLY video hosting site, it's just the most popular. Within a few months, we will still have the same threads, just they will be linking to Dailymotion. Trust me.
