Youtube-DL DMCA'ed by RIAA

Go to solution Solved by rcmaehl,

@matrix07012

 

It's back

 

https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl

Looks like they removed some stuff to appease the RIAA, but I'm sure there was a lot of in-fighting too

 

https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/commit/1fb034d029c8b7feafe45f64e6a0808663ad315e

The DMCA was loathed when it was enacted and remains as loathed then as it is now.  It came from owners of the record industry choosing to cash in on CDs even though they knew it would cause the problems it did and eventually destroy the industry.  They didn’t care.  They would be rich and retired.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

The fact is the DMCA get's used as a cudgel against "any use" of a copyrighted work, be it licenced or not. If it's used to take down a ROM piracy site, that's what it's meant for. If it's used to take down a Library, that's not what it's meant for.

 

Not going to read a wall of text. I dont have that kind of attention span. The fact of the matter is the DMCA was made in to existence in 1998. Like I stated in my first post. Its a 20th century law in a 21st century world. It doesn't matter what the law originally applied to, the courts will decide what its applies to. The problem is "Fair use" is not well defined by the law. Until Congress fixes the law, stuff like this will happen. The only way to fix the BS is for Congress to fix the BS. Thats not likely to happen. OR the supreme court need to strike it down, which is wont because copy rights are a protected right under the US constitution. 

Was there dairy in that? ***30 min later**** Yep..... You might want to let it air out for a bit.....😂😂😂😂😂😂

Nothing is likely to happen, ever, because that's just how US culture is. Short term profits over long term sustainability. Other countries that have moved slower on copyright reform recognize all the problems with the DMCA and have not enacted policies that behave the same. 

 

Copyright, law itself, reflects a time when the printing press was starting to be a thing, and books were hand-written. That's 580 years ago. Now any piece of data can be copied and duplicated a billion times in seconds, and copyright law was just not designed around that.

 

What will ultimately happen, maybe not this century, is that copyright will stop mattering, as every piece of content will be available without the artificial scarcity. You make it, everyone who wants it will have it within seconds of you making it available, with no middle-men.

The 580 year old problem remains the same though.  Creators get paid for their work.  If they don’t get paid they don’t create.  For some that payment is in distribution.  The problem with that though is that kind of content is almost always only an advertisement of some kind, be it for a product or political faction or religious group.  And those groups are generally perfectly happy with falsehood as long as it serves their purpose.

Copyright law is about protecting people's work. Thats all its about. Yeah, big corporations abuse it, but its still essential to help promote innovation and a desire to create new works.

vailable without the artificial scarcity.

Scarcity happens because some countries refuse to protect copyrighted works. So those countries dont get access to the content. Plus some of these companies have dumb distribution contracts, but with many studios/Media companies having their own streaming service, that could change in the future.

Yeah, however all of earths knowledge, and media has been recorded in a digital way in only the last 40 years. So you can not even predict where technology will be. But suffice it to say, it's a lot harder to create content that is worth paying for if you are competing against content in the public domain which is why companies like Disney try very hard to not let their content into the public domain, while still trying to pillage the public domain for their own use.

The argument Disney was making for their stuff revolved around the time honored practice of animators making short films in the margins of major films visible only to the projectionists.  One of the more famous ones was done in the 50’s and is a scene of Minnie and Mickey having sex.  They were worried about knockoff Mickey Mouse stuff appearing everywhere.  It was such a concern that they spent a bunch of money to temporarily move away from Mickey Mouse before the judgement.  Imho the problem with the judgement is there really should have been a special separate system for long running stuff set up.  Instead they just extended everything to cover the long running stuff.  It became a massive problem as a result.

They should just modify the manual to include some creative content videos, that's the only thing RIAA was able to take issue with, which is laughable.

Their site is still up, they're still in debian repo, pypi...


I love the description "a command-line program to download videos from YouTube.com and a few more sites."

The fact is is people who pirate videos and distribute them generally have the skills to write a script that downloads the entire video. So removing this code doesn’t stop them.
 

I guess their lawyers need to justify their fees and so they go after stuff like this.
 

Even with scripts like this, manually downloading content from YouTube is inconvenient. Anyone who has $10 per month to spare will most likely get a subscription or watch ads.

 

As a side note, with an iPhone 11 Pro or 12 Pro you can use the camera to record a screen playing any video at 4K 60fps and the audio will be good enough. Are they going to ban smartphone cameras now?!

Same with program like OBS, you can just screen record your screen...

The MPAA have been trying to ban consumer camcorders since their inception.

 

Want to see how stupid this gets?

 

https://hothardware.com/news/camcorders-not-dvd-ripping-mpaa-to-teachers

Quote

At the DMCA 1201 hearings at the Copyright Office at the Library of Congress, representatives from the MPAA showed a video demonstrating how users can videorecord a TV set. They argue this is an acceptable analog alternative to breaking copy protection on a DVD.

Yes. That's real. Yet...

 

https://www.natoonline.org/initiatives/movie-theft/

Quote

Working with the MPAA, NATO lobbied for a federal law specifically criminalizing camcorder theft in movie theaters, which President Bush signed into law on April 27, 2005 (See 18 U.S.C. § 2319B).  NATO and its regional units have also lobbied for state laws criminalizing camcorder theft in movie theaters and protecting movie theater employees who take action to stop such theft.  Such laws now exist in 41 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.  Furthermore, NATO supported the Canadian effort to create a similar statute, and in June 2007, Canada passed anti-camcording legislation.

 

So on one hand they present "use a camcorder" to make fair use, while simultaneously lobbying to make camcorder use illegal. Everyone with a smartphone is breaking the law when they enter a theatre, good god.

@matrix07012 feel free to put this in the OP if you want, I just had a thought that you might want to.

 

Haha that's great.

So the entire source code for Youtube-DL is now hosted on the DMCA page on GitHub (although you need the correct hash to find it, which is, for example, 416da574ec0df3388f652e44f7fe71b1e3a4701f).

So if RIAA wants to take down this copy of Youtube-DL they will have to send a DMCA takedown notice to take down the DMCA repo on Github.

Youtube-dl will probably move to gitee and github will just loose another precious open source project. Next one is probably adblock.

I'm worried about how future development will go, youtube-dl is a tool that requires frequent updating to keep its functionality working

its github being taken down is meaningless. Git is a distributed version control system. Everyone that's ever cloned it has a full copy of the history of the project (including presumably the developers themselves)

Literally all they have to do is create a new repository somewhere else and re-point their local repositories to the new remote and push.

Well, that sucks...

 

And (obligatory "I'm not a lawyer") it seems like a blatant misuse of the intent of DCMA (as bad as it is) to prevent a legitimate tool from existing that can be used to "illegally" download something. I can use Windows to make copies of copyrighted files, why is Windows legal?

 

I feel like there needs to be a provision in DCMA that for any claim filed, the defendant needs automatic free representation to prevent huge corporations for whacking one-man-bands with lawsuits that they can't hope to afford to counter.

if it went to court you could get that free representation but it would likely be yourself and it would suck very much

If you can play it it can be copied might as well just ban on youtube.

That depends. Generally you DONT get a free lawyer in Civil cases. Criminal cases are the ones that require you to get a lawyer. Piracy doesn't always fall under Criminal because the Federal Government has a hard time prosecuting the cases. So many times Copy right holders will just sue the individuals, in previous cases the RIAA settled for a few thousand dollars. 

Was there dairy in that? ***30 min later**** Yep..... You might want to let it air out for a bit.....😂😂😂😂😂😂

And even then they don’t always win.  There was a rather famous example some years ago of the RIAA going after a single mother who didn’t have a few thousand dollars because her 7 year old got ahold of her phone and downloaded a few pop songs.

I think its because Federal Judges are getting sick and tired of bull shit law suits. So they are not requiring a bit more proof.

I haven’t been following closely enough.  There have been major changes in the US federal judiciary over the last 4 years though so onorous many members of the majority party at the time actually quit over it till that party lost majority.  I don’t know what the US judiciary thinks.

The EFF's brief, if anyone is interested. It's the most professional "eat shit and go to hell" I think I've ever read.

Thats not quite how it read to me.  It’s more like “we didn’t do ANY of the stuff the RIAA said we did.  The RIAA uses BS automation that sucks at what it pretends to do.  The RIAA is the one with its thumb in its trousers, not us”. Eat shit and go to hell implies a refusal to do anything whether there was a violation or not.  They did stuff anyway, and there was no violation.  “Eat shit” perhaps. Extra helping of “you incompetent asshat” also perhaps.  Didnt see a “go to hell” though.
