New "censorship" technique on Youtube
« on: August 08, 2014, 07:13:25 AM »
It seems Youtube has come up with a way to circumvent complete censorship at the hands of the MAFIAA, and instead reach a compromise.

I came across a video with it. Here's a screenshot:

Contains mildly graphic material

The Youtube message:

This video previously contained a copyrighted audio track. Due to a claim by a copyright holder, the audio track has been muted.

I've not seen that before, and assume it's relatively new.

I suppose this is a step in the right direction.

Now that is an interesting method of equitable hair splitting.

I heard a similar thing was done for an unauthorized Britney Spears video.  Rather than take it down they morphed it to make Britney fat and ugly.  Oh. Wait a second.  I stand corrected.  The video is unmodified after all.  :)

They used do that a few years back - but maybe that was just here in Germany. I've also seen videos where the music was replaced by YT with copyright free music.


oh yeah,
Miles! you've been hanging around with too many skinny models !! :P

Oh, FFS! This is what I hate about all this geo-location BS.  :mad:  >:(

Does it really matter where you are? Sigh...  :-\

Why must they always screw everything up? Oh, that's right... we have laws...  >:(

The people doing game walkthru and review vids are complaining. Game music is getting caught by the same filters.

I'll still stick to Juliette Binoche  :-* or Julia Ormond. If I want thin there's always Mila Jovovich. She's a passable "sorta pop" musician too. (I've heard worse music - some of which garnered major awards.)

Well...we do have a new East-West Cold War starting to ramp up...

But that's what rattling your sabres and slinging that tired old BS nationalist rhetoric will get you.

I live in the US, and several years ago, I ran across a video that had that muted audio claim on it. I haven't seen it recently tho. All I have seen recently is just videos that have been removed due to copyright claims, or not available in my country.

Hmm... I'm a bit surprised that I've not run across this before then. I've had lots of completely blacked out videos, but this was the first time I'd seen this particular bit.

I don't know any of the Japanese pop vocalists(or hip hop or whatnot) but the actresses blow Hollywood Hot Chicks out of the water.  Unfortunately I don't remember most of the their names either.  But I use d-addicts, AsianMediaWiki and jdorama.com to refresh my memory.

The Chinese actress Shu Qi looks great for 38.
(Rhyme unintentional.)  :)

I had a YT video that was flagged for infringing on a music copyright. They alerted me, and presented me with a list of choices from which I could choose how I wanted to handle it. I could say that I had permission to use the piece, and stuff like that. But "mute the audio" wasn't one of the choices, as far as I can recall.

What sticks out in my memory about the incident though, was something else. They were right that the audio wasn't mine - but the piece that they flagged it as being a copy of was incorrect! They said I was copying X (I forget what), but my video was not X, it was a different song entirely. And of the choices they give you for how to handle it, they don't give you an option for "YT identified the audio wrong, it's not really that song at all". I was stuck.

Twitch.tv will do this, too. I'm not sure if it mutes the livestream, but it will mute the recording. Even if it's your own! You're not allowed to listen to the audio on your own recording if they match it to some copyrighted content.
