The Great YouTube Copyright Fiasco of 2013

Here’s a 15-minute explanation of the context, effects and implications of YouTube’s Content ID policy changes.

Just for the record: out of 110+ videos, Bunnyhop has received content ID notices on about four of them. In all cases they were silly and erroneous but Konami has yet to informally reverse their claims, leaving me to reply on YouTube’s own dispute system to get ’em off. This isn’t enough trouble hurt Bunnyhop in the short-term, but as explained in the video this seriously increases the “risk” half of the risk/reward decision weighing made when doing exhaustive lengthy projects like Critical Close-Ups.
