A study claiming that YouTube costs them ONE BEEEELION DOLLARS a year, by having DMCA safe harbours!
writeup: https://torrentfreak.com/dmca-helps-youtube-avoid-up-to-1bn-in-royalties-per-year-study-claims-170330/ study: http://www.phoenix-center.org/PolicyBulletin/PCPB41Final.pdf The conceit here is the music industry claiming that YouTube should pay them money that they literally know YouTube isn't taking in, on an assured basis as they do with Spotify. They have been smart enough to explicitly name Wikipedia as the sort of organisation they don't want to hurt. Wikimedians, of course, know better than to trust the IP industry with anything. This "study" is getting hyped in the industry press today; if it comes to anything, it *may* be worth Wikimedia commenting. - d. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
