YouTube Unveils Copyright School Program

Today YouTube unveiled a brand new YouTube Copyright School program, sentencing users who upload copyrighted material to watch the video embedded above and take an online quiz.

What do you think about this new model of piracy punishment–could work for eBook and print infringement as well? As of this writing, the video tutorial has earned more than 300 views, with 40 likes and 80 dislikes.

Check it out: “If we receive a copyright notification for one of your videos, you’ll now be required to attend “YouTube Copyright School,” which involves watching a copyright tutorial and passing a quiz to show that you’ve paid attention and understood the content before uploading more content to YouTube. YouTube has always had a policy to suspend users who have received three uncontested copyright notifications. This policy serves as a strong deterrent to copyright offenders. However, we’ve found that in some cases, a one-size-” fits-all suspension rule doesn’t always lead to the right result.”
