@ArtistRights @MusicTechPolicy “ @SusanWojcickiWe , YouTube, acknowledge your material appearing in this video but we choose to not allow you your rightful claim because it interferes in our ability to monetize the video.” Yeah, that sounds like it’s just begging for a legal case that takes away YT’s safe harbor under DMCA./3
their (YT’s & uploader’s) monetization is turned off unless you opt to monetize that content, at which point you share in that $ from that moment on. Important: if it already got 1M views that YT & uploader monetized, you get $0 of that. U can’t monetize retroactively.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has rented out Radio City Music Hall to pitch advertisers. But first an acknowledgment of YT’s crappy year: “There is not a playbook for open platforms like us to operate at scale.”
