For many young film makers or creatives of other fields, YouTube is the best place to share their content in order to gather a following and a reputation. There’s a problem which can restrict their (our) freedom to post the content they want to, though: Copyright law. Lots of videos are taken down from YouTube because of copyright-protected music being used in them, even when the song and artist are credited by the person who uploaded the video.
In my opinion, this is a big fault of Copyright and how YouTube implement it. It creates unfair and unnecessary problems for people trying to share their content. It’s not even like most amateur YouTubers are making money from these videos. And the ones that are using Copyright-protected for commercial purposes should rightly have to get permission, but the fact that non-commercial content gets removed for Copyright purposes is a big fault in Copyright law and the way it’s implemented on YouTube.
