I like his interviews but,when he rants he sounds like my Dad. Maybe his tinnitus was bugging him that video.He's almost always pissed, it seems. Of course, I'd probably be too if I had to deal with YouTube as much as he has to. The platform seems to be going a weird direction.
I go back and forth on my thoughts about Beato. My opinion of him shifts, like the passing clouds in the sky that he yells at (Simpsons jokes forever). I definitely enjoy his interviews and his insights into music theory, etc. That's about it.
I enjoy him a lot more then "Music is Win", that is for sure.
Thanks David for your reply.i gotta admit that i'm a little confused about your response to my post.
4) Rick is not hurting my bottom line, afaik. what he chooses to do, to employ, is entirely up to him; maybe his decisions will change some of the course of Copyright law, but i've no real idea..... only another not-too-imaginative guess on my part, as i'm neither a follower nor a hater.
he's only on "my radar" because of threads like this, because these hyper- and hyperbolic- trends interest me very briefly & extremely intermittently.
plenty of my songs and other music are present on YT and etc, including the "dark web" of the old torrents..... by which i absolutely got screwed, no doubt about it --- but that's another story, and i am NOT alone in it.
EDITED for clarity.
Yeah, because having compassion for a narcissistic YouTube influencer millionaire is so much more relatable and logical. I agree.
Absolutely! Beato whose net worth is valued at $5M with an annual income of around $750K is really struggling and doesn't have the means for a proper legal defense and simply can't afford the licensing fees that's why he's constantly whining when his videos are demonetized.
And even that is secondary to “does Beato’s video violate the guidelines of any of YouTube’s copyright enforcement algorithms”, which appear to operate in a broader, blunt, and less nuanced fashion than an actual fair use test. And are fully within YouTube’s rights as a private entity to employ, to minimize their risk exposure, regardless of what Beato or any of us think about it.The only relevant issue is does Beato's video fall under the guidelines of the fair use doctrine ?
You'll need to ask the owners of the page if a profit is being realized. I'm sure ad revenue is being generated, as well as those choosing to become contributing members. I see you chose not to become a contributing member.Is the TGP making a profit from us members?
How dare they? He was only trying to expand these bands' listenership!
