After reading the articles for class today I started to think about how youtube has really devolved in my view. Yes it may be a bit more user friendly and now has the gigantic veiny Google Brain behind it but it has become way too stringent.
I remember the good old days when there were no ads or commercials, no limitation on use, and the only bad thing was the time limit. Ahh, the embedding was universal and the content so free.
I feel like such an old timer when I talk about this but it has been such a short time period since the change that it really sucks.
I feel bad about the people such as Kevin Lee who worked so hard on their work only to have it stripped because the software detected the digital watermark and deemed it as copyright infringement. All in all, these topics are very provocative and delicate.
