    Is YouTube recycling content after disposing of the creators?

    I have wondered about this since I started looking around for farm equipment how-to videos. Most of those are still relevant and genuine, but not all of them. And it's more than the seamless editing, perfect zooming and pitch-perfect audio. They seem to make no mistakes (with the exception of the ElectroBoom guy who gets a shock in every episode).

    What I think is happening is that the corporate camel's nose is in the tent. So YT finds a content creator who has a good thing going and does what? Buys them out? Maybe, if they're lucky. But what if they just harassed them with minor rule violations to the point they finally say "fuckit". Or they ban them for saying fuckit.

    Regardless of how, they have hours of proven content that can be rendered into scripts and reproduced with corporate sponsorship.

    The political side of the equation is already seeing this in obvious terms. To that I say "what did you expect? It's a free site". And when you join, your content becomes theirs.

    Here's Styxx's take:

    This is along the same lines but more of a macro look at censorship from Gothix. It was posted a couple months ago, so there is reference to the election but I think she provides some interesting thoughts on the topic.

      Sort of reminds me of the movie Looker



      It was about a firm that scanned models in 3D and then used their images to make computer-generated commercials. Then they started offing the models so they wouldn't have to pay royalties. That's about as deep as the plot gets except for 1 detail, The Looker Device. It was shaped and used like a gun but it only shot patterns of light. Instantly put you into a hypnotic trance so that you could be easily tossed from a building or driven to wreck a car.

      It's the last movie I saw Susan Day in. I got tired of her after the Partridge family. She was just never very spank-worthy.

        Indeed. And when you're dead and buried, your cat videos will be presented by someone else (probably eastern European). So, at least the cat will have a legacy.

          Not if the account is deactivated.

          Once the material has been uploaded to the platform, it became theirs. It might sit for years before someone decides to make something with it. Are you of the opinion that "deactivating" an account, anywhere, just wipes your slate clean? Like it's been deleted?

          On those platforms YOU are the product and the platform is gambling on your overall appeal. And you never know what will suddenly gain traction. So having a 20 year library of cat videos from thousands of platform users, is money in the bank. It's the fee for the "free" service.

          There may even be people who like my rants here. I can't imagine why, my membership is always precarious. But if some 2070 grad student is doing a story on eccentric pot smoking professional writers of boring shit, the Tree Fort will have the content to sell! Right now it's only going to cover coffee. At McDonald's, not Starbuck's.
