NOTICE: THIS WEBSITE DOES NOT WANT YOUR CREATIVITY, NOR DOES IT CARE ABOUT THE LAW
YouTube was founded in 2005 by a couple of basement dwelling nerds and was later bought by Google, turning basement dwelling nerds into Mansion dwelling ones.
YouTube, while also the lair of many shit eating channels like PewDiePie, Smosh, and Markiplier, it does actually have decent content here and there.
Ben, TJ , and Scotty have dealt with a lot of copyright problems with YouTube's absolutely trashed automated system, resulting in heavily edited shows and even strikes against their channel. Because of this, the peasants have to refrain from playing any kind of music that they do not own. They also refrain from playing news clips as often as well.
TJ creating his channel in 2006 was a grand day for YouTube. The fact that his channel is so grossly undersubscribed goes to prove how fucked YT's format truly is. In the earlier years of TJ's channel, he had been effectively kicked off the site because of censorship. He has since returned (no shit).
Where's The Fair Use?
When I Hate Everything (a pretty fucking good channel) was suspended off of YouTube, it sparked a huge blacklash from tons of popular and obscure content creators. All of them sided with IHE and called YT on their bullshit.
Though his channel has since been unsuspended, the backlash has raised extreme amount of awareness against YouTube's awful format for flagging channels and taking down videos. This format has been a big problem for years, for it allows anyone to silence anyone they please by abusing the copyright system (see Brett (the manatee) Keane for an example of someone who does this).
In February 2016, Doug Walker made a video where he, along with YMS and IHE, explaining Fair Use Laws and explained how YouTube's copyright system destroys small content creators, while more popular channels can stay unharmed (cuz they put bread on YT's table).
Below, you will find a gallery filled with creators who'll give you their two cents on how Youtube's disregard for the law negetively effects millions of Youtubers worldwide.
