You can't be overly dependent on technology.
In 6 months, you’ll be out of business, I think.
This is not going to just be forgotten; Ustream is going to be associated with “FAIL” in the fannish memory for a very long time. Perhaps the rest of my life. Perhaps even the rest of yours… And don’t think that science fiction fandom is just going to let this slide without telling anyone. Some of us can be strident, vindictive, and very persistent.
How about you throw that shit out and make rightsholders go through the legally prescribed channel of filing a DMCA complaint?
Users of our paid, ad-free Pro Broadcasting service “NOTE: UPDATED CLARIFICATION” ‘and those free broadcasters who notify Ustream in advance they have copyrights permissions (Ustream’s messaging to our broadcaster community how this process works is inadequate. We are resolving this now)’ are automatically white listed to avoid situations like this and receive hands-on client support.
To a large extent, the case addressed past conduct, as Viacom said it was not seeking damages for any actions since Google put in its filtering system, known as content ID, in early 2008.
But Michael S. Kwun, a lawyer at Keker & Van Nest who previously worked at Google, said the decision would ensure that Internet companies were not legally required to develop such a system and could expect legal protection as long as they took down content when copyright holders complained. “I have no idea how much money YouTube spent on developing its content ID system, but if that was required for any new start-up, you wouldn’t see any,” Mr. Kwun said
However, over the last two years, Content ID has been naturally migrating from an anti-piracy tool to a marketing and monetization tool. From the beginning, rights holders had the ability to leave unauthorized uploads up and monetize them with ads. The majority of partners now do so, said King. Those who leave user videos up have seen their overall views more than double.
