I'm sorry to hear that.
youtube will be close or shutting down?
Read the article man, it's the beginning of the end, at least for commercial videos and films.
Are you serious? This is in Germany. Youtube is worldwide. Youtube isn't going anywhere.
Damn , just when I started to have a stable income from it !
I really hope this won't affect it on the worldwide aspect.
No, YouTube is not going down but most likely there will be corrections made to the system so that people like us won't be able to upload copyrighted videos, e.g. music.
It is an interesting decision for sure but Germany has a lot of ridiculous laws regarding the Internet and IP. It might be the end for German Youtube users but I think the rest of us are safe for quite some time.
But if the case is won and youtube lose an appeal you can see every music studio opeing up similar cases in their country and using this ruling to win and get damages. Youtube needs to win an appeal.
Not the end at all, if anyone has ventured into youtube in germany, you will see that most videos with background music will play via youtube, but when viewed over a german IP it will say the content is blocked, they have a lot of stupid rules in Germany. Certainly not the end. And huge bill???? I doubt its even going to be a 6 figure fine. Hardly huge for a site that earns 3 times that each day
