YouTube Educates Offenders About Copyright

American VoiceslawInternet ISSUE 47•15 Apr 18, 2011

YouTube is requiring users caught uploading pirated material to take an online copyright class and pass a test before they can resume sharing videos on the website. What do you think?

  • “Yes, copyright laws can be complicated. It's often hard to tell if you are uploading something you created yourself or something someone else created.”

    Andy Vereen –
    Systems Analyst

  • “Well, at least there are plenty of nerds online I can threaten into taking the test for me.”

    Jill Pressel –
    Adjuster

  • “Ugh, I hate school. Can’t they just fine me millions of dollars?”
