Fight Facebook Freebooting
You have probably recently heard Facebook making a big stink about how they have "overtaken YouTube" as the internet's largest video content provider. The reality is they have done this in a deceptive way that hurts creators and artists who work hard to create the videos that we consume every day.
Please be on the lookout for freebooted videos and report them to the original creators. I will be sticking to YouTube until Facebook takes measures to protect content creators from copyright infringements.
