I don't necessarily agree with this, but just to show the other side of the coin. I've got to say the idea behind it, I can't find fault with.
Copyright laws are very important to the artists and creators that sometimes work very hard and spend plethoras of money to produce some of the
entertainment people are uploading and showing to "audiences" completely free.
So, it's not "butthurt," it's been the law for a very long time and also morally wrong. If you watch an unapproved video on Youtube, part of you
knows it shouldn't be there, and if you are familiar with the copyright law description on every movie... ever, then you know it's for private
viewing purposes. Not trying to be contrary, I'm just saying that there really is no fault in trying to do something about it... It's completely
right and fair.
But to go after regular people isn't the right way to go at all, and it does resemble butthurt. They really need to hold Youtube accountable.
That's so obvious. Punishing regular folks will do nothing to stop it. It would in every way be much more effective (time, money, etc-wise) to
