YouTube takes copyright violators to school

In an attempt to protect the rights of stars, labels, and basically anybody who doesn’t want their content being posted up online illegally, YouTube has decided to school anyone who breaks their rules about Copyrights. If they receive a notification about you breaking a copyright rule, you will be forced to attend “copyright school” where you have to sit through a video lesson and answer a quiz after to show that you understand what copyright means before you’re allowed to upload videos again. If you clean up your act and maintain good behavior after that, there’s even a chance that your copyright strike might be removed (3 strikes gets your account suspended). It sounds like a great way to keep the public educated, not to mention the video lesson is pretty entertaining by itself. Hit the break to watch the copyright video lesson, or head here if you’d like to take part in the quiz.
