    Video website YouTube should proactively check if videos infringe
    copyright, a group representing Japanese rights holders has said.

    </font>


    The Japan Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers wants videos checked before they go online.
    </font>


    More than 100m videos are watched each day via YouTube and many are posted without necessary permissions.
    </font>


    Last month 30,000 clips were taken down by YouTube at the request of the Japanese entertainment group.
    <!- E SF ->
    </font>


    YouTube's policy has been to remove clips that infringe copyright after it receives complaints.
    </font>


    The current system "is not functioning well due to the
    [continued] large volume of illegal uploads," said the letter, reported
    the Associated Press.
    </font>


    'Vulnerable'
    </font>


    YouTube is seen by some analysts as vulnerable to legal claims for distributing content owned by other media.
    </font>


    The Japanese group has written to YouTube asking for a
    preliminary screening system for video clips and a series of
    provisional measures, including posting messages in Japanese about
    "illegal uploads". </font>


    The group also wants uploaders - people who post videos
    online - to have to register their details and face bans if they
    violate copyright.
    </font>


    YouTube, which is owned by Google, has been negotiating
    with leading copyright holders and reached agreement with several
    firns, letting the website post copyrighted music videos and other
    content in exchange for sharing advertising revenue.
    </font>


    The website has licensing deals with CBS and three major
    recording companies: Warner Music, Universal Music Group and Sony BMG
    Music Entertainment.</font>

    This is on the bbc site, does anyone know the copyright issues of uploading tries and match edits on YouTube, is that something they might stamp down on in the near future???

        In fairness, the decision to buy Youtube was insane. The only thing it had going for it was loads of copyright-infringed content; now that Google are turning it into a legitimate outfit, every content owner will be calling around looking for their cut or just taking it down. You'd have to wonder what exactly they were paying for.

          Didn't google have some other deal negotiated regarding the copyright? Anyway apparenty many of the copyright providers dont have a problem with youtube. The american TV networks regard clips going up on youtube as free advertising for their shows.

              Viacom to sue Google and YouTube

              Viacom says YouTube has failed to prevent breaches of copyright
              Entertainment giant Viacom Media has announced that it is going to sue web search engine Google and video sharing website YouTube for $1bn (£517m).
              Viacom has accused Google, which bought YouTube at the end of last year, of illegally using its TV programmes.


              It said YouTube was guilty of "massive intentional copyright infringement".


              Viacom claims that about 160,000 unauthorized clips of its programmes have been loaded onto YouTube's site and viewed more than 1.5 billion times.


              The lawsuit seeks more than $1bn in damages and an injunction to prevent future copyright infringement.


              "YouTube's strategy has been to avoid taking proactive steps to curtail the infringement on its site," said Viacom in a statement.


              "Their business model, which is based on building traffic and selling advertising off of unlicensed content, is clearly illegal and is in obvious conflict with copyright laws."


              Last month, Viacom, which owns cable networks MTV and Nickelodeon, told YouTube to remove 100,000 "unauthorised" clips.


              Viacom said its demand came after YouTube and Google failed to install tools to "filter" the unauthorised video clips.

                to be fair i cant imagine viacom are losing out from having their shows broadcast on youtube, if anything theyre gaining from viral advertising, people only ever watch clips on youtube, the quality is too poor to watch full episodes in which case the channel that holds the tv programme is benefitting. Viacom are shooting themselves in the foot i think

                  YouTube facing football lawsuit
                  YouTube page
                  YouTube has denied copyright infringement in the past
                  The English Premier League is to sue video-sharing site YouTube for alleged copyright infringement.

                  The football organisation said YouTube had "knowingly misappropriated" its intellectual property by encouraging footage to be viewed on its site.

                  Google-owned YouTube already faces a $1bn (£501m) lawsuit from media giant Viacom, accusing it of illegally showing clips from its TV shows.

                  YouTube has denied those claims, saying the suit threatens the internet.

                  'Exploitation'

                  The English Premier League and US music publisher Bourne launched the legal action in New York, claiming unspecified damages.

                  They said YouTube had consciously encouraged people to view content on its site in order to raise its profile, violating the material's commercial value.

                  "Defendants which own and operate YouTube have knowingly misappropriated and exploited this valuable property for their own gain without payment or licence to the owners of the intellectual property," the lawsuit said.

                  Action from Sheffield United's recent game with Watford
                  The Premier League wants to protect its commercial value

                  The commercial value of the Premier League has risen spectacularly in recent years, making protection of its rights a priority for the organisation.

                  The combined TV, radio and internet rights to show live games and highlights over the next three years fetched £2.7bn in a series of auctions.

                  Despite its huge popularity and commercial success, YouTube has attracted criticism from media organisations for the access it provides to sought-after content.

                  Viacom, which owns MTV and Nickelodeon, claimed that 160,000 unauthorised clips of TV shows had been viewed more than 1.5 billion times.

                  One internet expert said YouTube was coming under increasing pressure over the issue of copyright and he expected it to eventually settle with its various plaintiffs.

                  "There is absolutely no doubt that an awful lot of content is in breach of copyright," said media consultant Bob Eggington.

                      great way to catch up on missed episodes of programmes at times.

                        Google clip dump YouTube is to trial revenue sharing with normal users by adding some of its favourite uploaders to its partnership programme.


                        YouTube already shares advertising dollars with big commercial content firms who threaten it with lawsuits. Users who provide the site with their own home videos and film projects, such as the popular <CITE>Ask A Ninja</CITE> series, have long lobbied for a slice of the action.
                        <DIV =Ad id=MidArticleSlot><NO></NO></DIV>


                        Among the first is daring video essayist LisaNova, the creative mastermind behind <CITE>Don't Be A Douche Bag</CITE>, a treatise on modern rage.


                        To begin with only this "select" few will enjoy Google's benevolence, as the firm is likely developing processes to handle the potential thousands of open palms set to be thrusted in its cash-swollen direction. YouTube says anyone who wants to get paid can let it know by registering an interest, but provided no timescale for when it will cough up, or what the carve-up will be.


                        YouTube says you have to have "built and maintained an audience" to be considered.


                        The site reckons its aim is to change the perception of user-generated content so it is afforded the same respect as professional work. More prescient perhaps, is the need to start paying up before the people who make the original clips that sometimes make it worth visiting for reasons other than <CITE>Daily Show</CITE> grabs and Norwegians skiing down stairs will go elsewhere. Rival Revver has pioneered sharing the advertising wealth, and reports that some have coined hundreds from its 50 - 50 split. ®</DIV>

                          Google is expected to announce landmark deals with European television broadcasters to make content available on European versions of its video-sharing service, YouTube, this week, but so far RTE and TV3 have been left out. YouTube has signed with the BBC and is expected to announce deals with major French television stations on 19 June, according to reports in the French media.

                            Interesting also to see that TG4 are taking all their clips down. For a channel that would not have a large audience and it's primary objective is to promote the irish language I think this is a rediculous decision
