All your IP are belong to us (5 May, 2021)

YouTube has quietly reminded all those who upload content to its platform that they have effectively given away much of the protection normally offered by copyright laws.

Do you think that they will be treating the copyright protections of RIAA and MPAA members with the same disdain as that of regular folk?

I wonder just how close to tipping point YouTube is getting.

Nothing lasts forever and if the independent developer community decide they've had enough, YouTube will become nothing more than another (rather crappy) competitor to Netflix, Disney+ and the raft of other streaming media publishers.

I sense that change is in the wind and that YT's arrogance will be its downfall.

When you use YouTube you agree that Youtube can basically do whatever the hell it wants to with your content on its platform. That means you have granted YT a license to copy, as this new "feature" allows.

That's the price you pay for free hosting :-)
