Leave YouTube Alone

by @ 7:39 am. Filed under Current Events, Technology

I love YouTube… And since Google bought it I love it even more. But this morning I heard some disturbing news… Some big entertainment company by the name of Viacom or something has decided to sue my YouTube for $1 billion…Why? A frivolous reason. Viacom (or whatever their name is) claims that poor YouTube has shown “a brazen disregard for intellectual property laws and threatened the economic underpinnings of one of the most important sectors of the United States economy” (now that’s a charge). In plain English, YouTube is posting copy written material without the owners permission. Of course, the congenial, cooperative, amiable YouTube is trying to stop its brazen disregard for intellectual property laws and threatening the economic underpinnings of one of the most important sectors of the United States economy. The massively creative, intellectual, innovative YouTube has developed a Video Identification which will “require that content owners upload videos they wish to protect so that a hash (a numeric fingerprint of sorts) can be created”. Once this is done content owners can prevent the unwanted uploading of their videos…now that’s what I call taking action and solving a problem. But is Viacom (or whatever their name is) happy? Nooooo! They are still pushing the $1 billion lawsuit against my favorite video sharing site…I know how Sergey Brin and Larry Page (Google’s owners)can solve this problem…buy Viacom (or whatever its name is)!
