How does ARTICLE 13 affect YOUTUBERS? – VisualPolitik EN

How does ARTICLE 13 affect YOUTUBERS? – VisualPolitik EN


This is a special video. Today we are talking about a topic the heavily affects this channel and, in general, all of YouTube as a platform. Don’t worry though, nobody is going to shut
down this channel BUT, maybe those who watch us from the European Union will no longer
be able to watch some of our videos. Yes, dear viewer, today we’re talking about
ARTICLE 13. Something you might of heard of, especially
if you live in Europe because YouTube seems to have replaced all of my ads which before
were “Would you like a chocolate bar!!” to be “Have you heard about ARTICLE 13?!” Now let’s quickly make one thing clear. We’re biased. (Not a huge surpise though) In fact, we are a playing an active role in
this matter. One member of the VisualPolitik team was in
Brussels talking about Article 13 with policy makers who are currently negotiating it. That would be Fonseca (ALSO known as “drunk
Spanish guy doing the title voiceovers in some of our earlier episodes”). FUNNY HEAR TO ADD A CLIP. To this day, there is no association representing
European online creators. This is why a group of European YouTube channels
decided to take a bit of initiative and show our concerns to the relevant politicians. VisualPolitik were are one of them. So, for those who don’t know it, Article
13 is part of a EU directive to regulate copyright online. But the question now is… What exactly is article 13? Is it as terrible as many people say? And the most important question of all is:
what can we, the content creators, do about it? Today we are going to answer to all of these
questions but, before we do… let’s take a look back at history. For the last few years answering the “What
do you do for a living?” question got complicated for me. Some people, especially maybe the older set,
tend to think “well, that’s nice dear, but what about money?” Some of them I just gave up, and I’m pretty
sure my grandma thinks I’m a television presenter here in Prague. But the answer is that, yes, I make a living
doing this probably not suprising to all of you millenials watching… Now we Britsh we don’t like talking about
money. Indeed, fun fact, we’re seven times more
likely to tell someone we had an STD than we are to reveal our income. But, awkwardness aside, lets just take VisualPolitik,
both the English and the Spanish. Combined they get about 10 million views a
month. As you can imagine, this translates into something,
it’s a lot of people watching… Now, no, VisualPolitik doesn’t make us millionaires. But, along with the Patreon donations (thank
you!) and the ads, we can all draw a decent salary. And look… we are not the only ones! There are thousands of creators just like
us all across Europe: creators with enough audience to make an income and even, create
new jobs. And that’s just YouTube. It also happens on other platforms like Instagram,
Facebook, and Twitch. This means online creators have become an
INDUSTRY. Alright… so it’s not exactly the oil and
gas industry, but it does exist. It’s an industry that employs thousands
of people in Europe and creates value to society (most of the time…). Yes, YouTube might be an American company. But the World’s biggest YouTuber is PewDewPie
and he is Swedish. Is he still the biggest? HE IS. Still beating T-Series. Go PewDiePie go. Alright. so what’s the problem, then? Well, like I said, there is no association
that represents us creators in Europe. Media corporations or record labels have already
trade associations and even big lobbies in Brussels. We don’t. And why? Mainly because we started little by little. The story behind any YouTuber is: you start
small, make a few videos, hopefully see a bit of growth and then you say ‘OK, now
I can go full time on this’. As you can imagine, during this process, nobody
thinks about creating a trade association… Ya, know just in case, one day, the European
Union is like “hmm lets introduce a big old directive that really affects these people”. OK, at this point its probably important for
you to know how copyright actually works in Europe? Well, to this day, we are under the so called,
“Ecommerce Directive” and, also, the “Copyright directive”. Both were passed back in 2001. So how does this legislation work? OK, let’s imagine I upload to VisualPolitik
a videoclip from a band. For example, let’s say I upload a song by
TASMANIA (who often provide music for this channel). But let’s assume I upload their song without
permission. This means I’ve created something ILLEGAL. TASMANIA, or the record label who holds their
rights, they can sue ME… Bad news for me. They can request a big fine from me. So do they do it? Well… probably not, I’m a small creator
and my pockets are just not that deep. So, what can TASMANIA do? Well… they can go to YouTube and they ask
them to take down the video. Indeed, this process is often mostly automatic:
YouTube actually has a tool, a smart filter, called CONTENT ID. In this case, Tasmania would send all the
information about their song to YouTube. This way YouTube can scan the platform looking
for the song. Anytime they find it, they can take down the
offending video. This is the law works. All fine, but hold on just a second because
this is where the interesting part comes in! Now Tasmania comes in and they ask YouTube: ‘Hey YouTube, errrrr. How about instead of just taking this down
you slice me off a bit of that sweet ad revenue pie and send it my way?!” So, according to the letter of the law, YouTube
has to block the song if requested. But the law doesn’t say anything about paying
licences (which is essentially what Tasmania want). Nonetheless… since YouTube is pretty chill. they wanna do business with Tasmania! So they essentially say: “Alright then, look, we can negotiate a
licence… and we’ll give you a little slice. Sounds cool?” In other words: they negotiate a CONTRACT. And now you might wonder… well how big is
that slice of the ad revenue pie. Well… according to the record labels, it
is pretty low. Just look at what Paul McCartney has said: https://www.musicbusinessworldwide.com/sir-paul-mccartney-tells-european-parliament-vote-through-article-13-to-ensure-a-sustainable-future-for-music/
…today some User Upload Content platforms refuse to compensate artists and all music
creators fairly for their work, while they exploit it for their own profit. –Sir Paul McCartney The question now is… Is Paul McCartney right or wrong? YouTube states they give the majority of the
revenue to the record label. But we don’t really know because the labels
want to keep this information confidential. We also don’t know because we asked them. And nobody would tell us. There is only one thing we know. The European music associations like IFPY
or IMPALA want YouTube to pay more. They claim there is a so called VALUE GAP
between the revenue YouTube generates and what they pay to them. In other words… they wanna have a stronger
negotiation position. And how can they do that? Well, that would be with a new copyright law
that forces platforms like YouTube to pay a licence. This is why, in the year 2016, the European
Commission wrote the first draft for the… DIRECTIVE ON COPYRIGHT IN THE DIGITAL SINGLE
MARKET According to this law, YouTube and the rest
of the user generated content platforms must compensate fairly to creators. This means YouTube doesn’t give that ad
percentage because they’re cool with it but because they are legally compelled to. And this is a big deal. Because this means a better negotiating position
for the record labels. Alright, so far this doesn’t sound THAT
bad, right? Well… hold on a minute because now is when
things start getting more complicated… DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS As you might know, the European Commission
itself cannot pass a law. They have to send it first to the European
Parliament and to the European Council. These two institutions have to write their
own version of the law. And this is when the real issue with Article
13 comes up… “Online content sharing service providers
perform an act of Communication to the public” Article 13. Paragraph 1. EU Parliament version And now you might say… Alright, Simon, what’s up? Where exactly is the problem?? Well, let me translate it for you from EU
Parliament language. It basically means YouTube would have unlimited
liability on the content that stays on the platform. To illustrate the impact of this, let’s
go back to the TASMANIA band example. Now, they wouldn’t sue only me. Now they could sue me AND YouTube! And remember my mention of deep pockets. YouTube has those… Boy does it… In other words, according to this legislation,
YouTube would have to spend millions in lawsuits. Just think about it. Every single minute, over 300 hours of videos
are uploaded. Chances are many of those videos can have
some copyright violation… And you just need ONE video with a copyright
issue to give YouTube a multimillion dollar headache. So YouTube cant deal with that kinda legal
exposure, so how would they avoid all of it? Well… they would have to… build a wall. A very strict firewall in this case. Basically, any video with third party content
would have to be blocked. Of course, if you are in America, you could
still watch it because this law only affects the content watched or uploaded inside Europe. So, if this law gets passed, good luck trying
to watch videos inside of European Union. And yes, I’m talking about most videos… Because it’s really hard to work out what
is, and what is not, third party content. It’s almost impossible to identify it. Basically, everything beyond a dude talking
to a camera with a white background would have a risk of being blocked. And that includes this video. Because right now I’m gonna show you a quote
from Donald Trump on CNN. Yes, I know what you are going to say now. Come on, Simon, you haven’t done anything
illegal there – that’s gotta be fair use, right? Well yeah, you’re right. According to the law, I can use content like
this for satire or illustration. But guess what! That YouTube firewall it’s not a lawyer,
its an algorithm. And algorithms don’t understand context
or the law. So this brand new YouTube firewall would just
say ‘THIRD PARTY CONTENT! IT HAS TO BE BLOCKED!!!!’ And the same goes when I show you this clip
from TASMANIA: Is this illegal? Of course not! But good luck making a robot understand legal
caveats. And really, all my YouTube comrades watching
will attest to this, you already know how many problems we have with the filters YouTube
already have. So imagine how tough it will be with an even
more aggressive firewall. But HOLD ON just a minute because there is
an alternative! There is indeed a solution. A solution that makes everybody moderately
happy and that is pretty realistic…. WHAT CAN IT BE DONE ABOUT THIS? As I told you before, this copyright directive
has been voted on in the European Parliament. But this doesn’t mean the legislation has
been passed! In fact, we’re still in the middle of it
all. You see, the process to pass an EU directive
it goes as follows. First step, the Commission creates a first
draft. That’s how we got the first Article 13 draft. Second step, this draft goes to the EU Parliament,
they write another draft and vote on it. This is why we have another version of Article
13. But now there is a third step and a third
player coming in: at thats the European Council. The European Council is where all the member
states are represented. And, oh yes, they have approved ANOTHER version
of the Article 13. So yes, my dear viewers… we don’t have
just one Article 13. We have three different versions: from the
commission, parliament and council. European political institutions are so simple… Said no one. Ever. So what happens next? Well, now we are in the third step, which
is when the Commission, Parliament and Council get together and negotiate. In Brussels speak, we would call this the
TRIALOGUES. (Yes, sort of a DIALOGUE, but with three people… Like I said, never simple in Brussels, even
the damn words they use). So imagine a big room with a big round table. On one hand, we have the Commission representative
and her advisors. On the other, the representative of the Parliament…
and on the other, the one from the Council. Counting all the representatives and the advisors,
we have over 30 people negotiating. They meet almost every week. And yes, this is a loooooong process. Shocker. In this case, we have 3 different texts. And believe me, the one from the council is
very different. “In the absence of the authorisation (…) an
online content sharing provider shall not be liable for the act of the communication
to the public (…) when: it demonstrates that has made best efforts (…) and upon
notification by rightholders (…) it has acted expeditiously to remove or disable access
to these works” Article 13. Paragraph 4. OK, let me translate it to you again. This means that YouTube is liable for the
content on their platform. But this liability is mitigated. Alright, so what does this mean? OK, let’s go back to the TASMANIA example. With this law in hand, Youtube must report
to them the songs uploaded on the platform. And they have to ask them whether they want
to take them down or to get a licence from it. At this moment, Tasmania will have to add
their data and metadata into a form. This way, that filter YouTube already has,
the so called CONTENT ID system, already knows what to track. But not only that! According to this Article 13 version, if YouTube
shows they have done everything possible to protect the copyright, they cannot be sued. In other words, if YouTube plays by the rules,
they can avoid a lot of legal uncertainty. Yes, they would have to pay more money to
the record labels. But there is no existential risk anymore. And of course, we, the content creators, would
be happy too because we wouldn’t have to worry about all of our videos being blocked. And finally, the record labels are also happy
because they get what they need: better conditions for negotiating. So let me summarize it for you: what’s the
difference between the Parliament and the Council positions? The consequences of the Parliament’s version
is that European YouTube would become just another TV channel. Only the creators who already have a big audience
would survive. Why? Because they are the only ones who can pay
a lawyer to manage all the copyright issues so YouTube will let them upload videos. But there would be a big wall, pretty much
impossible to surpass, for the hundred of thousands of small creators. But there is a way to find a common ground
for all the players here. Of course, it is a compromise, but that’s
what politics are all about. So now, the big question is… what comes
after this third step? What’s the fourth step? Well, after this legislation has been negotiated
in the trialogues, they bring it back to the parliament. There they vote yes or no to the text. And then we go to the final step. This is just a EU directive. A EU directive is not an actual law but rather
a guideline. So after the directive gets passed, it has
to go to all the member states where they turn it into laws. And this is another moment were online creators
have to show up and speak to their national governments. And yes, if you’re a European YouTube creator
watching this, right now… that includes you. If there is something we have learned from
our trip to Brussels it’s that policy makers don’t even know we exist. And, if they don’t know us, as an industry,
if they don’t know that thousands of people live off of creating online content… they
will not understand how many people might go unemployed because of a bad regulation. So if you liked this video, rather than ask
you to subscribe today, I’d suggest you share it with a friend – a creator, a fan,
a European. Hopefully someone who will help make a difference. At some point in the future, we’ll probably
all need to act on this, and here at Visual Politik, we’ll keep you posted. Thanks for watching.

  2. I said it before, just like with the Congress and Mark Zuckerberg, where it turned out that the Congress has no idea how Ads and Internet works, because they are not up to date with the modern world and turned into a laughing stock, the same happens here. Uneducated politicians take blind decisions by 'experts' who said that by doing this we would finally settle/manage "this or that". Well guess what, no! All of this reminds me of socialism. Let's build walls around everybody inside so they have limited rights, so only the top of the cake gets the frosting. Income flies in, but for the top tier only, while content creators…oh wait…content creators?.. we have none in Europe…so lets do it…

  3. Perhaps all these world SHITgovernSHITmentSHITs tring to SHITnwoSHIT us is the real issue all they ever do is distort, whilst DIVIDING and attempting to conquer, creating order out of chaos, which is created and controlled by themselves with deception, propaganda, psychological warfare, they regulate all and believe you me history they don't have the people's best interest! INSANE, DISGUSTING, UNFATHOMABLE, PREDICTIVE PROGRAMMING EVERYAWHERE and at its best! It is almost as if tv, radio, and all social media has been created, and controlled by shit useless inbred Nazi ZIONIST fugly bloody rat bastards! Umm is it just me or does the shitgovernshitmentshit first put blame anyone else before accepting responsibility for their own ATROCIOUS murderous actions! Name one good thing the shitgovernshitmentshit has ever done other than rape, murder, oppress, manipulate, distort, deceive etc. I am not crazy, rather, I remain eager hopeful optimistic of a better world today not tomorrow… fuck where is… do you feel the justice? WE MUST UNITE AND IGNITED WE ARE THE UNSTOPPABLE FORCE AGAINST THIS SHIT SHOW CHARADE, FARCE NWO KAKISTOCROCY SHITGOVERNSHITMENTSHIT!
    Perhaps all celebrities alike all low life shit useless politicians are nothing more than mk ULTRA MiNd control freaks brought on by this shit useless nwo! Left or Right don't fall off a cliff, for fucks sake, Red or Blue dont be fooled, for their only ever care is in revenue, not me and not you! This shit fuck useless nwo shit stank kakistocracy system of decrepit fugly INBRED fucks less than rat shit BLOODY bastards, is the real ISSUE! It feeds on obstruction of justice, ENABLING their agenda to divide and conquer, whilst creating order out of chaos, SO THEY CAN KEEP ON with PROPAGANDA, PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE, CONFUSING, OPPRESSING, RAPING, POISONING FOOD WATER AIR EARTH YOUTH'S MINDS, ETC. All while distorting history sacred sites truth it's self! I SAY FUCK NO! DO NOT BE DISTRACTAINED(distracted entertained and chained) to perceptions not of your own mind, BY ALL THEIR STATE OF THE art BULLSHITITERY. BTW, ALL SOCIAL MEDIA IS WEAPONRY OF THE MASS PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE, MASS SURVEILLANCE, MASS MANIPULATION KIND!

  4. The EU pulled this stunt to crush alternative media channels on youtube and other platforms. They know very well what it does. # EUSSR

  5. Online creators = online vectors for products and services. What are you creating? You're talking. You're not creating anything. At best you are digesting information and synthesizing opinions. Creation is a rank above digesting.

  6. Whats the point in talking to the politicians when the shear act of VOTING (their one job) is too difficult for them. The only reason most of this passed is because some assholes voted the wrong way and got confused…

  7. Your interpretation of the law is flawed. there is a clear difference between 3rd party content and original content in most cases. satire and commentary and reviews are the most likely gray areas.

  8. The EU also introduced the GDPR legislation. Are you opposed to that as well? It's certainly complicated to work with and costs a lot of money for companies to deal with. Should we categorize their effort to protect peoples privacy as evil too since it is cumbersome for companies? You provide no perspective and your interpretation is paranoid.

  9. lol? with Article 13 passed recently, South Africa just made a clone of it. Now every youtuber worldwide must pay an authorization per content to South Africa in addition to EU's. And if any youtuber worldwide doesn't pay this certificate, the South African Government will bill for $35000, get 5 year jail or BOTH. Now imagine other 3rd world countries start making Article 13 clones aswell.

  10. You Tube has already got a copyright program don't they? I made a home video a few months back and wanted to use an AC DC song. They blocked the video because of this song. My video was an airshow performance of the Thunder birds and only for showing to friends and family. Nothing spectacular and wanted no money generation, I wouldn't even know how if I wanted to. I have another of a small nativity skit from church that was banned in Germany over 5 years ago because of the song that I used which, to my knowledge, has nothing to do with Germany. Facebook wouldn't let me upload a national anthem home vid with my own flag because I used the USAF band's version and had even gotten it from a free MP3 download. So what gives? This law just tightens the noose that is already around the neck?

  11. What is also fun and a lot of people don't seem to know, is that one of the bigger lobbying parties that are behind the push for article 13, is a company called 'Audible Magic', a company providing copyright services to other companies, websites, and record labels. They provide copyright tools (such as upload filters) to some of the biggest websites such as Facebook, Dailymotion, Vimeo, and others, however, there is one site not on their customer list… That is YouTube.

    Back in 2006 Audible Magic and YouTube signed an agreement that lasted till 2009 about Content ID. YouTube used Audible Magic's Content ID system just like many others did, however, YouTube decided to go their own way and develop their own Content ID system to be more relevant to the content uploaded on YouTube. In 2014 YouTube obtained a trademark for their version of Content ID and since then they have implemented that on their platform. In the same year, Audible Magic sued Google for trademarking Content ID, claiming they own the trademark on it. Because of this, a legal battle has been going on and the goal from Audible Magic was to have Content ID removed from YouTube, which would force YouTube to start using Audible Magic's version of Content ID.

    To this day YouTube still has its own version of Content ID, so either the lawsuit is still happening or YouTube won the deal. Behind the scenes, YouTube is also working on a system called 'Content Match', a more transparent and simplified version of Content ID. This is the exact opposite of the interest that Audible Magic has, they want YouTube to use their algorithms so they can make money of off YouTube. I hope you can start to see the interest that Audible Magic has in Article 13, if this law passes it forces YouTube and other platforms to enforce even more harsh copyright rules and to do this they would need the help of Audible Magic, the company that already has all of those tools developed and ready to be implemented, at a cost of course…

    tldr: Audible Magic is a company that has been fighting over copyright with Google for a while now, they lobbied for Article 13 to force other companies to buy their products.

  12. THEY ARE RUINING OUR ENTERTAINMENT. FOR SOMETHING STUPID TO PASS. EVENTUALLY IT WILL FALL IN 2 WAYS. FIRST THERE WILL BE A WAR TO THE PEOPLE AND THE POLITICS. SECOND IF IT WILL BE ACCEPTED THE ORIGINAL CREATORS THAT MADE THE CONTENT WILL RAN OUT OF IDEAS OF CREATIVITY. HAVE AT IT ARTICLE 13!!!

  13. This is not only about being able to watch YouTube in Europe, is about closing all uploads from Europe. So no new content from Europe producers anymore because for google is impossible to monitor all videos uploaded, so for them it would be better to stop all uploads.

  14. This is the true colours of the EU. The TTIP deal will be back again and get passed. I turned against the EU after the Lisbon Treaty was forced through aka the EU Constitution guised as a Treaty.

  15. EU: literally tries everything to hurt America
    EU People: tom face meme … leaves Europe and migrates to America.
    EU: pokemon face meme

  16. This isn’t a job. You all use other people’s content and creations, and talk about it. It isn’t yours. If you would only create your own content then this wouldn’t be a problem. I know, you all don’t agree with me but you are all the reason this is happening. None of you can create your own content, and you need the work and content and creations of other people to upload videos. It’s crazy. I hope these channels do get their videos taken down because nothing of what they talk about revolves around their own creations.

  17. A Stalin Of the Internet. I do want to get behind Pew die pie to protect YouTube and help with saving the Internet and everyone if you want I am a YouTuber I have 43 subscribers and I need more subscribers to pass T Series.

  18. China should sue EU for intellectual property thief……..of the VIRTUAL GREAT FIREWALL. Great work EU you screwed up!

  19. your shirt design is probably copyright…Why are you surprised EU negotiation is complex? Its the biggest cooperative project in history. Never been seen in an eternity…its a frickin miracle of union

  20. I have to comment this. First of all the idea of copyright strengthen is right and there were better ideas, where the industrial had got there money and you as content creator had more secure against strikes, but this variant didn't got chosen.

    The German content creators and other organizations are fighting against this article, because the party who was in charge of this is CDU/CSU and the speaker of this is Mr. Voss and yes every time they are talking over it they show us that they have no idea from the internet. In the end they called us, how are going to demonstrations, paid from Google. They said we had gotten 450€ for it.

    But you should know that the most interested man of this article is the president of France Mr. Macron and his government. At the End there is talking about a gas pipeline where the CDU is interested to get it and the the Frances will help them for this variation of article13.

    And yes there a not alone interested in this article, because the old thinking Media groups in the EU are thinking they are getting a lot of money out of this, but i don't think so. Rely who cares about them it is easy to over blocking there content and don't pay them, then pay up a filter and pay them. You should know that this groups paid the politicians one day before they are voted for this variations of copyright an expensive dinner. But they are calling us Lobbyist.

    There is al little chance to take this copyright down in the last vote of governments in the EU parliament. Not the small country's can do it, it must be one of the big like Germany. The local politicians are more and more against this and there are two people who can be the voice of reason to it. The first one is Chancellor Mrs. Merkel and the second one is Mrs. Barley from the SPD. It is tough because Mrs. Merkel must know that it would be better to take it down, then loosing her face against Mr. Macron.

    I think only a big outcry from the people out of the world against article13 can move her. So please sent her and the German Government your mails with your doubts and be factually int them. The same goes for Mrs. Barley from the SPD, because she must go against her coalition with the CDU/CSU.

    Let her know what you are thinking, but be factually .

  21. damn, you have a 3rd party shirt on, and you don't have broadcast rights to show that shirt to the public do you? isn't the content of your shirt,… content?

  22. Dude it’s been just fine for you till today what EU did in the past. Same mindset same policies and you never but never had an issue. Today that these policies are biting you and it’s taking the bread out of table you jump as bitten by a cobra! EU pushed without taking in consideration the will of people mass uncontrolled immigration from third world. If you ask today the citizens in any EU country you name one, there’s no majority that wants to be dumping ground and importer of third world problems. But you never had an issue with that. You attacked the Eastern European leaders for merely implementing policies that their citizens wanted. You never had an issue with hate speech laws. Hate isn’t measurable and it’s subjective perception from a person to another. That law was simply to shut up people. You never complained. You continued your videos undisturbed. Business as always. That’s the standard you set for yourself. The standard that you are subject of bureaucrats and politicians imposing policies. And you were ok with this standard. If everybody is affected by police state don’t be surprised when the day comes that those policies slams over you. You loved this way you got this way. I feel bad for anyone who’s affected and fought against the police state but I don’t feel bad for you and for anyone else shortsighted, selfish, thinking that knows the best and is virtuous but in fact knows little to nothing. The ones who loves big government and have no clue that democracy means the first of all a system were people has control over their fates and aren’t controlled, regulated, dumbed and not take at all in consideration by entitled arrogant elites. You got what you stood for. Now enjoy it. Karma is a bitch. Isn’t it?

  23. Let's hope this filter will block the likes of ranting nazi Verknobstadt
    And yes, we have all these different versions of article 13 and they will no doubt be seal clapped through in a few moments like all the others in the clapping seal eu parliament

  24. I still think Youtube needs to be more responsible. And they should get less money from its creators. Google thinks Youtube is a goldmine. I head they take 50% of creators’ ad revenues it’s crazy. And google avoids paying taxes. I support the EU on this one. Make Youtube more liable. Creators should get more. Youtube should get less. They do almost nothing and just just cashing in.

  25. From a Business view, this would probably destroy the music industry in Europe, as they would lose their greatest promo platforms, especially this does not only impact youtube. This is pretty much just stupid, and the music industry killing itself again, after the whole rise of streaming service.

  26. why would it only affect europe? isn't it the world wide web? that makes europe worse than china? it can only spread , stop it now!

  27. those bricks are copyrighted, the air in your lungs is copyrighted, your underwear is copyrighted, stand naked in front of a white screen with a scuba tank that you pay for the copyright for and you might get through, and you can't say anything because all words are copyrighted and you can't have any music because all music is copyrighted and you can't think anything or write anything because all thoughts and images are copyrighted

  28. I think this is all about shutting down Tommy Robinson and anyone who is not completely compliant moving forward. Just today, YouTube decided to limit Tommy Robinson videos an cancel all his live streams. That's like the phone company telling me who I can and cannot have a conference call with. Instead Article 13 will say the Mainstream Media owns that story, and you cannot talk about it.

  29. I love how your kinda giving them a middle finger by playing so many copyrighted things all in one video haha. Le' Resistance!

  30. issue is Record Lables abuse there position and claim shit they don't even own. Purposeful stagnation of competition.

  31. I haven't found ONE single video covering EU CD or Article 13 that is NOT ironic or sarcastic or conspiratoric or condescending. IT is impossible to share videos about this subject to people who are not familiar with Article 13 when all the videos are sarcastic or trying to be funny every 5 seconds. Can't people just be serious and factual for 5-10 mins when trying to explain Article 13?

  32. I have a question. I hope someone can answer.
    Why is the VisualPolitic in Spanish the original one when there is way less Spanish speaking audience in Youtube? I mean, once I saw a graphyc which said that 90% of the videos upload in youtube are in English, Spanish makes just 3%.
    (I am an spaniard btw)

  33. What a shit-storm. Well, better be the council version. That seems way more humane… But seriously, fuck them for pushing this nonsense.

  34. What if the person says you can use their songs and then they tell YouTube that you used their songs and didn't allow you to use it???

  35. All of this is going to be very confusing for new creators, like me. I haven't even started my channel yet and already I'm crapping my pants over copyright and fair use.

  36. could you please post links on all the channels you’ve shown in this video? I know only The Great War, what are the others?

  37. Why don't you make a video about all the people making "Topic" channel videos which some algorithm selects to clog up our feeds with repetitive garbage we didn't subscribe to and which obviously steal content daily.

  38. Art. 13 violation if you critic any politician: If you tell which opinion you oppose and why you need the license from the politician you critic for presenting the opinion the politician uttered (created by talking into the mic of tv).Every political opposition can be shut down now. The politician only has to not agree to have his opinion published for critic. Example: I oppose the tax politic of Politician, who said " censored censored censored censored censored censored" because of.It started with the abolishment of Art. 4 of the Lisbon treaty in 2007 (equal rights for member countries under maintenance of each nations identity <=soon I can't say this without license)

  39. Thanks for trying, it didn't work. it was fun while it lasted. The internet is about to die as we know it.

  40. Politics never grants freedom but restricts freedom upon the people it attempts to enforce. Typical idiots creating an illusion of law and order bc the public is also a bunch of typical idiots that need a false sense of security and public order. The internet is like international waters…use at your own risk and it only has bits of data that are managed majorly by intellectuals and maybe some typical idiots. Still it is a platform of communication that should be free of political propaganda promoting their own agendas.

  41. Oh, and yes, you talk of the EU and the internet, well, a shiti company is not boss whereever it wants. The EU tries to protect his citizens ! That is good. Youtube can do whatever the fak they whant. We were here before youtube and will be here long after these sad companies die. So, avoid to put this pathetic companies in at the same level as a country or union. Youtube is important for you. I and many others can do without. Remember Yahoo or MySpace ? Those companies had the same impression, namely that they are above, well, above no more :)) The European Union is the most cool thing that happened to the whole Europe ! You talk of an EU army like is something bad (in another video of yours), well it will be the second good thing that will happen to the EU nations. We, the EU citizens, not you (or may be since you say you are a EU citizen – if you are not from UK), have been asked to vote on the "EU army". Do you know what the citizens of EU (including me) voted ? Let me tell you, a big YES. I, a simple guy, had this proposal yeas back. Evan I written a letter to the EU committee for an EU army. Do you know WHY? If I had this initiative, you could imagine that a lot of people written the same thing to them. "Logicly", as you say, the EU army existed from the very beginning. Once you are in a union of EU brotherhood, then you have the responsibility to protect other EU countries. The threat is there. Remember that the Russians won the WWII ALONE ! What you people put in your movies is pure misinformation and work to manipulate children only. 60 million russians died in the war and only 900 thoust US+the rest of the allies ! Can they do it again ? Yes, they are crazy enough! But … only if Russia was the real problem, but it is not. The EU is very well thank you, to bad you are not a part of history. Thank to your "smart" leaders and the software manipulation of the UK people (that brexit was a sad faking day and I felt betrayed by all of you). I hope that you are smart enough to understand that we are Christians and the evil is in other places.

  42. Article 13 was the cause of MemeGags being cancelled in European Union. That was because according to Article 13, memes count as copyright.

  43. I live in the European Union, Article 13 has been passed, therefore I can not watch this video! Sigh! Oh, wait, I can, because article 13 is A LIE
