Just look at napster, for example.

Napster actively stole content. YouTube has historically been for user created content.


Seagull eat fish. But fish belong to Mafia. Mafia punch seagull for not respecting Mafia. Seagull say "No, please! I have child!"

Mafia punch seagull with child.

Yes, and that has never been allowed, and they had early versions of ContentID early on.

 

Sites like Napster didn't, because again, they were actively stealing content.

Didn't stop Viacom from suing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viacom_International_Inc._v._YouTube,_Inc.

Its unlikely a smaller company would have been able to take them on. Their early contentID system was both extremely aggressive and missed a lot of stuff. When it found something with copyrighted material, they would remove the video. If you used a song back in 2006 that wasn't royalty free, and you were found, it would be removed, unlike today where it would simply get an ad placed on it and not allow you to monetize the video.

Well those as mentioned were never allowed, Youtube were always active against movies.  But I've been noticing quite a few music channels getting deleted, which Youtube kinda seemed to not care about until the recent changes to contentID.

So there's been a possible explanation...

 

Apparently Pokémon Go uses CP or Combat Points but YouTube's bot mistook it to mean child pornography and flagged 3 channels for child sexual abuse.

Trainer Tips posted a video on his other channel.

At 6:30, he explains that the Youtube algorithm went after his channel for using the term "CP". In Pokemon Go it means "Combat Power", but the Youtube algorithm mistaken it for "Child Porn".

He adds that this already happened to WWE videos, because they use "CP" to refer to "CM Punk" and Club Penguin videos, "CP" referring to the name of the game.

So it ends up being the Scunthorpe problem again?

 

Gee, maybe they should actually be looking at the channels/videos they're removing instead of trusting a dumb bot to do it.

I believe they do, the bot flags the channel and it gets pulled instantly but is then added to a manual review list.

I doubt it, more likely they just let bot block whatever and review when people refute the block, far less work for them that way
