Copyright Infringement


#1

If creators use copywritten content, will their Bytes (still weird to say lol) be muted or taken down?


#2

I’d like to know this too, or like copyrighted music ?


#3

I Categorized it in General Discussion for you Also

What im assuming is gonnna happen is when someone posts content that they do not own and someone files a copystrike against them it will be reviewed and if needed taken down


#4

As a Hip-Hop Vlogger, I can tell you, I get flagged on content that even independent artists submit because their music is registered via their distribution company. I remember with V, a lot of us artists networked effortlessly before these crazy copyright demons lurk. I hope it won’t be a problem :pleading_face:


#5

Will we really get flagged tho? It’s only 6.5 seconds of copyrighted music, and even youtube typically allows more than that.


#6

id definitely NOT want to be flagged for using music…i mean id be down to tag the creator but ITS JUST 6.5 seconds : ( lot of my planned bytes would have music in them that goes with the comedy


#7

And being 100% honest, 6.5 seconds isn’t always enough time to identify a song.


#8

id hope not…
copyright infringement policies are dumb when the copyrighted material is not used in a way of someone actually trying to steal and pretend its theirs.


#9

6.5 seconds of music often does not violate copyright fair use laws. However, if the bytes are monetized, it can create some issues.


#10

agree with this, main point of copyright also includes making money with content that you do not own. With that being said, 6.5 secs is STILLL PRETTY SHORT


#11

6.5 isn’t within the threshold for copyright laws thats also one of the reasons there was no monetization with Vine
