Of course, the most shocking of all... my new Steven Universe video that I've uploaded last night got a claim by Turner EMEA Kids (a Cartoon Network branch I think?) and was blocked in over 133 COUNTRIES!! ISN'T THAT INSANE?!?
What the heck am I suppose to do?? It should obviously fall into the "Fair Use" agreement, especially when it's for parody or review purposes. I just... I don't get why YouTube has to be stubborn that way. It's not like I'm stealing your material and uploading the full thing on there... those I can understand why they should be taken down (because it's illegal).
The more I see stupid shit happening on Youtube, like the whole I Hate Everything fiasco where his channel was taken down for no reason and then brought back, I don't feel the need to support this website's decisions. I WANT YouTube to improve and get better, I WANT to be able to upload content that is pleasing and entertaining for others, I especially WANT it to be an easily accessible platform. They're making it harder to upload let alone being creative, because you can never be too certain when someone will claim, block or remove your videos that you put time and energy making them.
Why can't we get direct feedback instead? Like for instance, instead of using a full episode of a show, why not recommend me to animate it instead? Instead of showing clips from a movie, why not show still images? I know I can just say that to myself, but what I want those companies to do is tell that to us! The creators, the reviewers, the editors; the ones that are praising, criticizing or parodying your work.
*sigh* Basically, what I'm trying to say is... fix your shit, YouTube! I'm tired of getting paranoid, thinking I won't be able to accomplish new goals, because the world is full of crap and nobody is giving ANYBODY any fair chance. Instead we have to be treated like criminals from the start until proven innocent, which I don't want this shit to happen in a world where there IS freedom. This REALLY frustrates me, because it doesn't motivate me to create new videos talking about things I love or hate... it's just really-- really-- REALLY bullshit!
