I wrote about this on my blog a few weeks ago and thought it was worth sharing withthe connection economy audience as well. Youtube is often under the microscope regarding it copyright issues. Essentially uploading copywritten material (TV and Music) can can have a large impact on bottom line for specific industries.
YouTube has finally designed a solution to the copyright problems it experiences. What’s more interesting is that YouTube has been able to do this without simply blocking unauthorised videos.Rather it has managed to provide a better user experience that encourages higher use of the website and increased profits for the content owner involved.
This video for TED provides some great insight into what YouTube has done.
The good news is that if you have original content that you would like to protect on YouTube all you need to do is log it into the Content ID system.
