From the "stupid" department

Recommended Posts

I recently had a copyright issue with one episodes for my webseries on my youtube channel. I did an episode talking about the troublesome presidential campaign. I played several clips from late show with stephen colbert. I took the clips from the late show youtube channel and mention during the episode these clips owned by CBS. It wasn't the first time I played clips from colbert channel.


A few months later I got a message from youtube saying my episode was being blocked because the copyright owner filed a complaint. Only for this episode but another episode was left alone but youtube added ads to my video to compensate the copyright owner. I filed a dispute to try at least get some clarification but not only the reply came too fast it didn't answer the questions I raised in my dispute. They only said copyright owner still claims ownership a very non answer. I don't believe anyone actually looked at my dispute. I was considering to file appeal but I would run risk of getting the video deleted and getting a strike against my account.


If they couldn't answer my dispute properly there no reason to believe would take my appeal seriously. I deleted the episode and recorded a new episode without the videos because what I talked about was too important to forget about.


The copyright laws need to be revised and provide a better clarification what can and can't do. The current copyright laws accomplish nothing but make lawyers rich.
