Most of us think that YouTube is a website when you can post whatever you want and you can feel free. However, for those who only watches the videos might be surprising how YouTube copyrights restrictions are working.
When you want to upload the video with a music of yours favourite band, playing in the background, you might have trouble. In 2015, YouTube added controversial technology called Content ID which automatically scans videos for copyright content. So, when you want to add your video, just a moment after the video is uploaded, you get an information about the copyrights.
However, the Content ID is working also when you are doing live transmission. So don’t be surprised when in the middle of watching you will see a placeholder image because it will disappear when Content ID will
no longer detects for example music.
Those kind of restrictions are unnecessary and might scare some of the new YouTubers. YouTube should stay an open space.
