Maybe you've heard about the article 13, or maybe not, so why should also you care about this? Let's talk about that.
As for first discussion we have there official post from YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki published 22 October 2018.
Since 2005, YouTube has transformed from a single video at the zoo to a global video library where billions of people turn to each day for knowledge, creativity and connection. Today, YouTube is a diverse community of creators who are building the next generation of media companies and drawing fans from every corner of the world. You are making history and changing the way people watch video, engage with each other and share their voice. I feel honored to help you do this, and I continue to be inspired by what I see.
In the last year, the number of channels with over 1 million subscribers has increased by 75%. Each month, more than one billion fans come to YouTube to be part of music culture and discover new songs and artists. Building on that momentum, we’ve expanded YouTube Music to the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Russia, Canada, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Brazil. We also rolled out three new stories on Janelle Monáe, J Balvin and Shawn Mendes in our YouTube Artist Spotlight series over the last few months. And we launched 13 YouTube Originals in the last quarter, including three in Germany and two in France.
All of this is possible because of the creative economy powered by you. However, this growing creative economy is at risk, as the EU Parliament voted on Article 13, copyright legislation that could drastically change the internet that you see today.
Article 13 as written threatens to shut down the ability of millions of people -- from creators like you to everyday users -- to upload content to platforms like YouTube. And it threatens to block users in the EU from viewing content that is already live on the channels of creators everywhere. This includes YouTube’s incredible video library of educational content, such as language classes, physics tutorials and other how-to’s.
This legislation poses a threat to both your livelihood and your ability to share your voice with the world. And, if implemented as proposed, Article 13 threatens hundreds of thousands of jobs, European creators, businesses, artists and everyone they employ. The proposal could force platforms, like YouTube, to allow only content from a small number of large companies. It would be too risky for platforms to host content from smaller original content creators, because the platforms would now be directly liable for that content. We realize the importance of all rights holders being fairly compensated, which is why we built Content ID and a platform to pay out all types of content owners. But the unintended consequences of article 13 will put this ecosystem at risk. We are committed to working with the industry to find a better way. This language could be finalized by the end of the year, so it’s important to speak up now.
Please take a moment to learn more about how it could affect your channel and take action immediately. Tell the world through social media (#SaveYourInternet) and your channel why the creator economy is important and how this legislation will impact you." [source: youtube-creators.googleblog.com]
So what does that all mean? It means that if the Article 13 will go into law, YouTube and the internet how we know will be the past.
Creators in the EU will not be able to upload any video to their channel because all of the videos will must be checked not by system, but by real human if the video 100% belongs to you.
So big companies like YouTube will probably block the ability to upload any video to your YouTube channel if you're living in the EU and this includes also our favorite youtubers.
Are you asking why block them if they will have their 100% original content.
And answer is because there are no such huge amount of employees to check every one video because there are so many youtubers now.
They also want to ban the memes and a lot of funny stuff, for more information please read the description.
But this is still not reality.
You can change it by posting a video to your YouTube channel about this with hashtag saveyourinternet and also by posting this hashtag on the social medias.
Let it discuss more in the comments, leave your opinion and I will connect to the conversation.
So I hope this video explained you a bit more about the problems we facing, thanks for watching.
