my dd has heard that youtube will be deleting all videos that have a copy right infringment (even videos you make of your kids with back ground music). Is this true? or just rumor?

That would be very work intensive for them. Can you imagine watching all however million youtube vids to look for copyright infringement?<br><br>
More likely they will delete those they get complaints for.<br><br>
Either way though, now is a good time to download any videos that ar important to you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

They already do this. Every once in awhile a video we've had for awhile in our bookmarks is "removed for copyright infringement". We just remove it from our list and there are usually 10 more posted.

They're currently being sued by Viacom. But I haven't heard anything about them being ordered to delete anything yet.

I've had several bookmarked videos that later just said something like "Removed because of Viacom copyright infringement."

I hadn't heard about the viacom thing, but I know they do at least try to keep tabs of copywrighted stuff.

I thought they were being sued to produce a list of their viewers, to see who has watched/downloaded copyrighted materials.<br><br><a href="http://news.cnet.com/8301-13739_3-9936833-46.html" target="_blank">http://news.cnet.com/8301-13739_3-9936833-46.html</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Users of YouTube and other video-sharing sites could face $750 per clip penalties if they have watched a video that was uploaded without the copyright holder's permission.<br><br>

According to a strict reading of the copyright laws, and discussions with legal scholars, users could unknowingly be liable if they click on the wrong YouTube link. The fact that they're not aware that a video was illegally uploaded is irrelevant. All that matters is that they clicked on a link, and watched the video.</td>

However, the court order says Viacom must only use the information to prove its claims that YouTube is a prime source of piracy, and not for the prosecution of individual users. Viacom may, for example, use the logs to prove that most first-time viewers are watching copyrighted material.</td>

If the music is just playing in the background, that is covered under fair use laws. If you make a video of your kids and use a copyrighted song, that is also covered under fair use laws. If you sell that movie, then you've broken copyright laws. However, simply posting it on the internet is a gray area, likely covered under fair use laws. However, YouTube is making money off of their user's movies, and some have copyrighted material in them, so I can see that there would be a basis for a lawsuit there. If I just made a movie with a copyrighted song and put it up on my own website, that would be covered under fair use laws. But having a middle man is probably the issue here. It would really impact youtube if they where forced to delete all those movies though.

How on earth can they possibly go after every single person who views a video on youtube? I could see persecuting those who upload illegally, and I could certainly see a problem for YouTube management itself, but I can't realisticaly see any way they could go after the end user.

Of course they cannot catch all, but they do remove some, like I was watching a clip of The View and put it on my favorites and then I checked later and it was gone (but a dozen others all the same had cropped up)

According to computer geekmo hubby - it has to do with the way that videos are rated and such. Viacom wanted all the coding and info on how the videos are rated, prioritized, etc. (You know, that stuff that is proprietary info YouTube makes money off of?) Judge said no, but gave them access to who viewed what. Viacom is trying to prove that YouTube prioritizes commercial content, i.e. the copyrighted stuff, so that gets more hits. Which isn't true- it is all user rated, so that controls it.<br><br>
That was my 30 second summary from compu hubby.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

There were Napster users (and parents) who were sued--and I think the users lost. Gee, I didn't realize that Viacom might come after us--my family has used Youtube!

About two years ago, DD and I began to notice more and more videos removed due to copyright infringement. Yes, even kids' homemade vids.<br><br>
And didn't Google buy YouTube over a year ago? I'm sure the crackdown will continue. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
