Lol you people are really amazing. Having a copyright in place before any theft allows you to go after by threat or course statutory damages for each theft of your work. Edit - why the instant downvotes? Or paypal or stripe or any ecommerce product which allows for selling something? Why should someone who loves Peter Jackson's movies have to sit and watch his friends in the United States see the movie he can't for another four weeks because he doesn't live in the right spot? Are they breaking copyright law so you can sue them? Or are they breaking no law so you have to settle for pissing in their orchids and stirring up trouble? We plan to turn over documents in response to the subpoena on January 26th, 2018, unless you intervene in the case. Hey guess what, Silicon Valley has been doing this for nearly 20 years to other people. You know what I mean? I think it is slightly different since Udemy is charging so much to view the infringing content. Not really a hard problem to solve.
An android app development course, it was incomplete. You have to force them to work. Most of the money that movies make don't go to employing people, but to the profiteers at the top. It's all ancient, trivial nonsense and was treated as such. Was there ever any kind of license creative commons for instance attached to them? I'm not suggesting you file a copyright for everything, just stuff you want to absolutely protect. Besides piracy, udemy itself is just a terrible platform. Tv shows are maybe an order of magnitude smaller, records maybe one more.
I agree about ebooks, but I'd argue that they have a whole virtue of their own: Nothing beats the speed at what you can skim them, to quickly narrow down on the parts you're interested in, thus being exponentially more efficient than watching hours of video just to find out that it wasn't what you needed yea, well, except physical books of course, which even ebooks can't beat. Of course, people who make a living creating learning materials see the position rather differently. That's more important and that's more valuable. I think there's a value that they're providing. Did he post them somewhere online? The fact that they exist does not mean one should use them. I'm giving you the ideas.
I haven't stolen a single song since. There are plenty of sites like lynda. Tv shows are maybe an order of magnitude smaller, records maybe one more. Seems a little unreasonable to me. This is a company flagrantly copying someones work without permissions. Most will leave the profession.
You can use paypal or stripe links to take money, are they now liable for penalties for things people sell using them? It may not even matter if they knowingly acted as a marketplace for stolen goods. It's illegal, it's unethical for the government to steal money from me to compel me to pay something. They didn't even put my name on it and they've watermarked it. These are unregulated near monopoly markets. The point of my post was a business profiting from pirates. The piece has been edited to reflect that. Online learning platform Udemy is taking on FreeTutorials.
Udemy being active in many jurisdictions I imagine parallel cases or forum shopping might be worthwhile. Maybe this is a bigger deal, but, like I said, I just don't want to sweat the small stuff. All of these people have at some time downloaded a movie or used someone else's Netflix account. Look at the most pirated content: movies, music, television. Did the author make those videos on behalf of a company? That would not make the copyright infringement any less they'd be running at an even more massive loss but that's besides the point. So extra checks should be added for them in the approval process. Udemy could perhaps offer to do something similar? With the charges that Udemy has per copy, they should be paying people to review every video.
Perhaps a better one would be: I guess disruption is great until it's your livelihood being disrupted. If you guys want to hear another horror story about Udemy, take a skim through: note: the above post is a few days old Someone really needs to step up and create a more reasonable course hosting platform. Of course, people who make a living creating learning materials see the position rather differently. There's some interesting topics to talk about in regards to this on Udemy is infringing upon my content. Sorry, while I choke to death.
