YouTube and you

When I refer to “you”, I presume I am addressing fellow creators – that is folks working in creative industries like music and film, making creative goods that can be traded online in return for income.

In other words, fellow professionals.

Know this. YouTube is NOT your friend. It is in fact, the very opposite of a friend. It wants to kill you.

Ever since its inception, YouTube has made a mockery of intellectual property rights, utilising the worst aspects of human nature to infiltrate and degrade interactions between artists and consumers, for its own benefit.

Here is an informed and very thorough analysis of the problem.
