YouTube ethics

I'm sick and tired of YouTubers deliberately overloading their vid descriptions with words that have nothing to do with the video at hand. When I search for clips, I sometimes find tons of clips that have nothing to do with what I want, but happen to have the keywords in their frivolous "This video has nothing to do with" lists. If you want to get people to watch your video, why not just do it honestly? (And if the YouTube TPTB can delete videos for being illegal, why not edit descriptions to not trick the search engine?)

Of course, there's also the issue of putting stuff that is ABSO-BLOODY-LUTELY illegal. I can understand putting up short isolated clips and stuff, but putting like whole episodes of your favorite TV show? It just doesn't make sense. (In fact, I do recall one of my online friends saying that she doesn't go to YouTube because of this... although the fact she has a dial-up connection also might factor in, too.)

I will go on the record to say that I do neither of these. Ethical all the way!

Yeah people uploading clips or whole episodes of TV shows is probably why Viacom is suing Google/Youtube for $1,000,000,000.

Don't care is it legal or not and, frankly, neither should you start yelling "WAAAREZ!" every time there is something potentially copyrighted. Even if it is blatantly so. It's not your job to enforce the law and I'm sure alliances like RIAA and MPAA are more than willing to do their part.

If everything copyrighted was courteysly removed from the net, you would be staring at blank pages for the most part. Oh, and I hereby declare this post copyrighted by me. Anyone quoting or moderating it without my explicit and written consent WILL be sued for breaches in my immaterial rights. I.e: the site will be shut down, owners sued for cash, and visitors directed to my monopolized shop of "YouTube Ethics."

As to the search-spam, the same happens with webpages. Just try searching for "Porn" -I can guarantee that you will end up to one of the million membership sites no matter which search-engine you use. Naturally the same smart-asses will do the same on YouTube and the like. Personally, I would like to see the blatant spam removed and their creators banned for good.

HEH

(And I've gotten into problems for quoting posts without permission, too. For some reason, "they" equate it to plagiarism. )

Complete Terms and Condition if disagree.

Even though it's not directly contributed by them, they are hosting it. But youtube and google video do have mods. And they are there to remove any illegal movies that would be illegal on those video sites. (wouldn't it be extremely tough to remove(and find) the tons of movies that are uploaded daily?) I suppose they can use key words like Family Guy, Stargate and other already licensed shows/movies. (also don't forget, anything contributed on UT is their property, but you bear the consequence. It's like a double edge sword)

SpiderBraids - Youtube is almost an anonymous board where users can post anything and everything they can get their hands on. And of course i've noticed that there are illegal clips/movies that shouldn't be on youtube. Many clips slips by that site and goes unnoticed for days to many weeks, if they ever catch on to it.

Also the naming and description are done by the users not by UT, so UT isn't responsible for their name and descriptions. Terms and condition says that the users has the responsibility for their submissions to youtube, and they have obtain the proper & necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize that submission. I really doubt many people have the proper rights to do it if they are submitting an illegal clip of Family Guy.

**--Terms and Condition of Youtube --**

Spoiler:


ps: Is this in response to the dolphin massacre clip you saw? Or do you just dislike Youtube fun?

If the authorities would decide to sit down and count down the number of illegal videos, it is completely possible that they might even reach a ratio around 0.9 (considering that even posting guitar tabs of a song is considered illegal, imagine the ones that play other's songs or sing other songs in their clips, that also includes preparing videos that include copyrighted images, etc). Also, there is no less illegal or more illegal, as long as it is illegal, it is illegal. And, I doubt, anyone here who downloads the animes freely on the web, would have a right to be able to criticize that content fairly.

(on a side note, I don't really care about this a lot, especially if the site does indirectly encourage you to do so: how, not banning ips of users that posted such videos, trying to keep the removal on a needly basis, not starting right ahead implementing automatic removal systems, which is already available, etc.). I am sure, youtube (and the buyer google) did never have the intention of forcing the removal of such videos, instead, using the power of the site, they wanted the companies to accept the current conditions, and availability of such videos.

As far as i see it, theres no point in uploading full movies and episodes to YouTube (or the YewTube as i like to call it), since all the latest stuff is available through torrents usually before they are even released. I, for one, have downloaded everything i need from torrentspy and if the thing i need has just been released, it will have very high speeds. Ok, you dont have to dl anything from youtube but streaming wont allow for much of a quality so just getting stuff through torrents is, in every way, much better and the viewing pleasure should be greater.

One thing you also have to take into consideration is Creative Commons. It's a like a less strict form of copyrighting. Anyone who wanders Deviantart should know about it.

ShareAlike (sa): Permit others to distribute derivative works only under a license identical to the license that governs your work. (See also copyleft.)
So AMV's, cosplay, and fansites are legal, it's almost like free advertising for the companies that own the series/comics/etc that are being used.

Most Japanese stuff is held under CC usage laws. A lot of American things have stricter copyrights. For example, Fox covets all of it's shows like bags of candy (Family Guy and The Simpsons being a couple of examples).

http://search.creativecommons.org/

If all Japanese media were held under strict copyright, imaggine how much "fun" anime conventions would be. Not fun at all. There would be no cosplay unless you bought the outfit from a company, no fanart galleries, no AMV showings and contests, nothing.

The only thing that is downright illegal is uploads of FULL media like an entire book of manga, full episodes or movies, or if you claim an image drawn by the creators as your own art (this includes a traced images). All that just falls under logic, though.

I rip DVDs (although Funimation and Geneon/Pioneer have protection on their DVDs so I can't rip 'em) and I download anime episodes, but not so I can watch 'em, I just butcher them up and use them for AMVs.

I also scan manga and colour in some of my favourite images, but never post them as my own work, I ALWAYS credit the original artist.

That made me laugh... not what I expected from a thread called YouTube Ethics, especially after the recent news about the lawsuit

Japanese works are NOT under CC licenses. They are under the same copyright laws as anything else.

Their enforcement of that copyright is, traditionally, less stringent.

AMVs, cosplay and fansites are ILLEGAL. It sounds ridiculous at least for cosplay and fanart, I know, but it's still illegal. I have nothing against such presentations of available media, but nobody should fool themselves into thinking that what they're doing is completely innocent. Yes, even cosplayers. Considering some companies like COSPA and its subsidiaries pay licencing fees to the original license holders to produce, sell and distribute costumes and clothes, making a cosplay costume is not much different than fansubs vs. legal distribution. While companies quite possibly benefit from such free promotion, the laws state that these are illegal activities. I repeat, I have nothing against such fan-indulging activities, I just think we shouldn't blind ourselves just because many of us draw fanart, cosplay, watch fansubs and AMVs.

As for the YouTube issue itself: YouTube has become truly main stream, and even people like my retarded cousins from Alaska know about it. As such it has an abundance of crap content on its servers, and people that do wish to show their work to a broader audience have no choice but to spam every possible tag they can think of. The goal is to have a link to your clip shown somewhere on the web interface. Having it there raises your chances of success by 1500%.

I don't know where people get the idea that Japanese things are under Creative Commons. If anything, THEY'RE actually stricter than the Americans in general - and I don't really mean the companies themselves, but the people as a whole.

Spoiler for blah blah offtopic:



I personally love using youtube to find specific pieces of animation done by a particular animator or director or whatever, if the rest of the series which that animation was featured in does not interest me at all. It's really handy to watch just that episode of Doremi which Hosoda directed without downloading batch torrents of raws, or just to watch, say, some animator's 1 minute of animation from series X without having to dig up the entire episode.

It's also great for AMVs with various clips of animation from differnt shows by one animator. The good thing is it's also easy to get other people to watch it, as opposed to uploading it and getting them to download it and then watch.

I understand completely. I've seen too much works of art and others distributed without the person giving proper or any credit to them.
