copyright law needs loosening and a lot of change.. with music a lot of things can be considered a remix... and with more things being made and restricted ... the freedom of creavity and innovation is also restricted.. time for change.

In my opinion, at the very most copyright should only last until death of the creator and no longer, and only be able to be passed on to living relatives if the copyright is within 20 years of creation.

- <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="286">4:46</a> while true, the copyright system can't always distinguish between different recordings of same public domain work. - <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1036">17:16</a> not so wide, if you happen to upload game footage at day 0 of the launch you will get copyright claims. Also companies like Konami and Nintendo abuse their copyright rights to claim everything their own. - <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="2160">36:00</a> There is big issue about the public domain, big studios like Disney find a way to change the law in their benefits, or public domain of a movies when the characters turn into iconic only know to appear as they are in that particular movie, so nobody can't make a movie from the book for the Frankenstein, because the look of the character is copyrighted. The law is shaped to match the interest of the big companies.

<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="2280">38:00</a> one workaround for this would be grandfathering. if you made one song in 65 that made you a ton of money, its good for the lifetime. then public.

I would suggest one more change: Licenses should be priced relative to the expected target audience size. The smaller the creator's audience is, the smaller fee they would need to pay to properly license the copyrighted content. This is the biggest hurdle right now for people who want to use that content legitimately. Thankfully, I have seen some companies doing this, such as lickd, which was designed specifically with youtubers in mind. Hopefully more companies join this mindset, and hopefully the law gets modified to make this a requirement. Honestly, I'd argue that if an audience is small enough, there shouldn't be a fee.

I think that one of the problems is that the US and UK both use intentionally vague language in their statutes, meaning that contracts must be long and complex, as the English Common Law legal system allows for statutes to be overturned or altered by judges. What they COULD do is move over to the Roman Civil Law system that’s used in Continental Europe and have highly detailed language in the statute, with simpler contracts. The downside, however, is that the “innocent until proven guilty” standard in criminal cases gets flip-flopped, so doing this would uproot one of the US’s core national values.

This is a very good presentation about a view from the other side of the copyright argument. I love my creators but just blaming youtube for the strikes is not fair. They do what they can, they are still trying to fix the system but people put them in the same light as the greedy big music companies just show how people don’t look at this problems from all perspectives.

Not fundamentally broken? I've had hundreds of copyright claims for videos with SILENT soundtracks. How can there be a match between any music at all and complete silence? This is obviously not possible so yea the system is definitely fundamentally broken.

And by silent I really do mean silent. I.e. every single sample in the soundtrack has the same value. There is nothing to be heard. Yet every week there are new claims against these old videos.

There was even a time when Sintel got flagged. That is an explicitly open source movie by the Blender Foundation and made entirely on donated money and computing resources and with their own 3D animation software Blender kind of as a show de force, yet just because Sony used the 4K render of it as a test video it got flagged by Sony on Blender Foundation's own SEvid channel.

I've written, performed, recorded, engineered and produced over 1,000 original songs with music videos. (No, really - just look) and on no less than a dozen occasions I have had MY MUSIC claimed by a music company and have claimed any income from those songs. (Bad luck for them, I don't have an audience, so no $$) On EVERY occasion - I counterclaimed and they let the 30 day response time just count down and NEVER respond. NOT just one company. Several. This is ABUSIVE and knocks the momentum out of ANY single that I release that someone else sees as competition. I never receive an answer nor does SEvid compensate nor the claimant suffer ANY penalty for this abusive behavior. I'm just Out Of Luck for 30 days. But the "system isn't broken"?!? I, and creators like me are outright being denied the ability to monetize our work, *without any recourse*. Consider perhaps making a follow-up about these "RARE EDGE CASES". i.e. People struggling to achieve the level of success that you have by blathering on about topics that interest you...

there should be a "small" publisher law. For exampel Videos/ Memes up to 20.000 views cannot be claimed, unless the claimed part of Art doesn´t have a reach over 20.000 or so. Thus small artist would be protected.

and i don´t think that music or so should have 50 or so years of safety. If it was so famous, it has a nostalgic effect, it should have brought enough money for the works worth in 20 or less years.

I think fair length for copyright should be until death plus 20 year, or 50 years which every is shorter. This means people can continue to profit from their work for the majority of their lives, and if an artist was to die soon after production at least the estate can have some profitability from the production

SEvid is just doing the best it can with the hands its been dealt by law. However, if Sony can go around on SEvid and claim some random persons performance of a Beethoven piece, which that person then cant appeal, because appeals are handled by the same company who makes the claim, and even if after illegally claiming the video, they agree that they are infact in the wrong, they just wait out the 30 days until they have to reply, because they will get all the money the video makes while the appeal is in process, then to claim that the fault is in no way on SEvids end is wrong.

So there actually is an example of a court declaring gifs to violate fair use. In the District Court for the Northern District of California (aka the court where all the silicon valley cases are) there was a case in mid 2018, Lucasfilm LTD. LLC, v. Ren Ventures LTD. In that case Lucasfilms sought to have the court find that their copyright had been willfully violated. The court found the copyright had been violated, but it had not been willful. In a discussion of fair use, they go through the four factors of fair use, but in the end, weighing purpose and market effect extra heavily, found that the defendants use of Star Wars GIFS to promote their Sabacc game without Lucasfilms permission was copyright infringement. While it's still an isolated case, the Northern District of California has a lot of sway when it comes to technology law, so it's worth noting.

Wait, you said that MST 3000 was absolutely nothing but review and criticism, but then just a few seconds later, you say that just adding wisecracks over the entire movie definitely wasn't fair use so they asked for rights for every movie they watched. What is it then? Are they allowed to use it or not.

Welp, imo, big companies are still a more in the "wrong", morally speaking, concerning "fair use". I'm all for free market and all, but at the same time don't pretend that the law does not gravitate towards the huge money dealers due to corruption and lobbying. If there were huge sums of money behind a law to consider parodies "fair use", then it would most likely happen. If Disney accidentally parodied something without permission, and got sued for it, definitions on parody would be all over the place. And there is a certain gray area on parody vs criticism. The criticism in this vid aren't really criticism are they??

Vidangel tried a model that was not tested in courts and found Disney suing them to the point that you cant even have Disney movies edited in your own home now, if you are watching Star Wars now and you fast forward through a scene with Jarjar Binks you may be violating copyright now.

Copyright should just replicate what patent law does (maybe reducing the required fees to protect it). It's a realistic solution, might not be all that utopian, but much more plausible, rather have a begrudging compromise than a "bloody" revolution. Edit: But also, talking about reality, a change like this would just accelerate to the nth degre the "everything-as-a-service" companies drool over now-a-days. Why will they bother with copyright when you don't own a single thing that's more than a dummy screen (it's like TV pre VHS and radio pre compact cassette bundle into a giant middle finger to preservation and consumers).
