Harwood Butcher Posted January 15, 2009 Share Posted January 15, 2009 I'm not sure how well known this is around TGTAP, but I recently found out that Youtube has decided to mute any unauthorized audio from all videos containing such unauthorized audio. The majority of this "unauthorized audio" is, obviously, music. Besides the actual companies that have the rights to the audio being used, there are tons of members on Youtube that have unauthorized audio in their videos. I bet that the only Youtube members that have the rights to the music being used are the owners themselves. No one apart of the Youtube community would go so far as contacting these companies to get authorization and even if they felt like trying...they'd most likely get a "NO!" for an answer. Yes, I realize that Youtube has really no say in this since they’re not above the law, but this is, in my opinion, the downfall of Youtube. SOURCE Your thoughts?
