YouTube offers an appeal process against demolition requests
A small step taken by the Google video site with which protect users against takedown attempts meaningless content by rights holders. However, policies to remove content will continue to favor incumbents.
The news comes via its official blog and it sets a formal appeal within the program blocked videos ContentID. How does it work? From now on, rights holders who wish to retain a lock request after the video uploader denied content copyright violation, must submit a formal takedown notice the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Thus there is the possibility of fines on attempted false locks.
The idea is to eliminate the amount of videos incipient blocked before finally headlines the content was not theirs. Until now, when a user is blocking a video and claimed it, only he had the right to claim for channels where getting nowhere. YouTube explains:
If a user rejects the claim ContentID, the “content owner” will have two options. Release may demand, allowing the video subieres again. or may file a notice of formal elimination under the DMCA.
Yet as stated at the beginning, right holders still have advantages in this process. Filing a notice under the DMCA, you may file a counter-notice to restore its contents. At that time, if the owner continues to believe that the content is infringing, you may file suit in federal court.
YouTube expects up to 10 days to restore a video of a user after the counter-notification. The portal also has up to three ads in your system, which means that each request to DMCA, the owner receives a “strike” on your account. On the third warning, the account and user’s videos will be deleted.
A mess that derive benefit large companies against users who risk losing their portal account if they try to defend takedowns false.Tags: ContentID, Copyright, YouTube
