Sometimes you get people who are self-centred and do not care how their ideas will disadvantage other people, so today we will go through some points made by Maria Schneider about copyright and why she is wrong.
From the section “Common Sense Solutions,”:
So taking down a video immediately is not enough for you?
As YouTube already immediately take down videos without fucking evidence that it was infringing on copyright, but we will get to that next.
In this area they are false takedowns by feminists and SJW’s because they disagree with your opinion or for background music without considering fair use.
Takedown and stay down would mean the only comeback to a false claim would mean going to court witch is not financially possible for most people to do, meaning anyone without a lot of money could see their freedom of speech taken away just because the claimant disagrees with their opinion and meaning that only rich fucks will have freedom of speech.
So you want to force people to go to classes before they can make any content? And what would have to learn and would an awful organization like MPAA and RIAA be making the lessons?
You could take anyone stealing videos to court if you want, so parity already exists.
And what anti-abuse systems would there be or would it be a case of the copyright holder is always right and can do anything they want with no consequences and no appeals,
And how would fair use work in this idea as you have to consider fair use before a takedown.
This is going to lead to copyright abuse as companies will be able to abuse the DMCA with no evidence of that wrongdoing,
Sounds like the MPAA/RIAA wet dream.
Her suggestion is an awful idea that destroys accountability when filing takedowns, which encourages them to abuse the copyright to takedown criticism of their product.
The #WTFU campaign was set up because of the bullshit copyright abuse.
