I'm really struggling to summon sympathy, because this kind of content, "reaction videos", really is the lowest of low-effort content. Literally it's just a repost of somebody else's video, alongside the facial expressions of somebody who's watching it. It's even hard to claim "fair use" because unlike, say, a movie review which only shows selected clips from a movie, these reaction videos will show literally the entire video they're "reacting" to, from end to end.
The whole idea of playing a vid in a window just seems like asking for it. There is no reason why they could say they are starting the vid and their viewers could start it also if they want. While the reactions when seeing things seems pointless to me the good ones spend several minutes talking about it after. Okay, it is not cinemawins or movies with mikey but it is sort of a review.Just keep in mind ... post-millennials actually consume those crazy media.
No, whatever you think of Jukin Media, their behaviour is symbiotic rather than parasitic, in that, while they depend upon the creators of memes, they give the creator a free choice of whether or not to allow them to use the creator's IP, and give the creator an agreed fee in return.When referring to them as parasitic, Jukin Media is far more so. Jukin has created nothing.
You're half-right. The other half is that hey tend to have nothing to do with the creators of any content they've attacked. They don't have to be symbiotic nor parasitic to be exploitative. At best, they're collecting settlements via fear tactics. At worst, they're abusing the DMCA and its lack of necessary investigative requirements to line their pockets over false pretense.No, whatever you think of Jukin Media, their behaviour is symbiotic rather than parasitic, in that, while they depend upon the creators of memes, they give the creator a free choice of whether or not to allow them to use the creator's IP, and give the creator an agreed fee in return.
If, in order to make money for themselves, people use content created by others without first asking their permission, then they have only themselves to blame if unpleasant consequences for them ensue, at least to my mind.
Yes, but the question is, was this fair use? According to the copyright lawyer quoted by the BBC (and he's very critical of Jukin Media's behaviour),You don't have to like fair use. It's just necessary.
Leonard J. French is a copyright lawyer based in the United States who is also a YouTuber with more than 100,000 subscribers.
He told the BBC that the question being brought up by commenters online is whether the YouTubers should pay at all - or if their video falls under the legal principle known as fair use.
"It's very possible that MxR Plays are not making a fair use," he said. "But I and my fellow attorneys don't actually know how a judge or jury would find if this went to a trial because fair use is such an in-depth analysis.
"It's right on the line. Did this channel make enough additional commentary or criticism to overcome the hurdles to fair use, or did they just republish the original material without adding enough transformative content to make it a new material?
"That's the difference between no damages and massive damages with nothing in between."
They didn't get burned.They took a chance, played with fire, and got burned. I find it really difficult to have much sympathy for them.
Welcome to the real world.
Welcome to the United States of America.copyright.gov said:Fair use is a legal doctrine that promotes freedom of expression by permitting the unlicensed use of copyright-protected works in certain circumstances. Section 107 of the Copyright Act provides the statutory framework for determining whether something is a fair use and identifies certain types of uses—such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research—as examples of activities that may qualify as fair use.
They didn't get burned.
MxR is now clean and clear.
Jukin has silently proven that they're still to afraid to ACTUALLY go to court.
If anything, Jukin gets nothing more than negative press.
And they're are already attempting to redirect their bluff by targeting Pewdiepie and TyroneMagnus.
While speaking of the real world. You seem comfortable with the idea a corporate entity can legally silence critique and dissent... Where I come from, individuals have rights.
