A ton of dedication you have for reading all these comments! :DDD
What Is Content ID?
So, the company of a movie (or any media product) can upload the “Reference File” on YouTube and hide it (I guess they use the unlist option), but it has some special layer on it or something. It’s called “Content ID.” It pretty much prohibits the content to be re-uploaded on YouTube.
But the thing is that the company can do three things when they find a match of their video uploaded and another video uploaded. They can #1 take it down (like with this and the “Fireproof” review) #2 monetize it (like the “God’s Not Dead” review) or #3 track the stats.
So, Kevin were talking on the Inner Tube about your right for free speech. And I agree with that. The only thing I don’t really agree with that excuse to do these reviews is that Kevin go thru the whole entire video, making it unnecessary for the viewer to purchase the video.
There’s two things, in my mind, that can categorize Kevin’s reviews: #1 a (satire) review and #2 an illegal uploading. Yes, Kevin reviews it, but he also presents the whole movie to the viewer.
If one was to take down Kevin’s “Old Fashioned” review (which is a real review), then they aren’t doing it right. Kevin have the right to review it and to show the trailer (or even select clips from the movie). And if they take it down (especially if they don’t like the review, even though that one was positive), they are violating Kevin’s right to free speech. (And if anyone starts speaking about homosexuality but gets arrested, then their right to free speech is being violated.)
But with all the other reviews, it’s a little questionable if it’s an illegal uploading or a review. It’s a tough line to define.
So, just wanted to give you all some of the information. Hopefully Kevin won’t get sued!
