YouTube Copyright Education

YouTube has created a new tutorial on copyright and redesigned its copyright help center in order to better educate users about copyright issues.   If you receive a copyright notice from YouTube, you’ll be required to watch the video and pass a quiz before you’ll be allowed to upload new content to YouTube.

So be forewarned, YouTube makes it your responsibility to know whether you possess the rights for a particular piece of content before uploading it to YouTube.  You don’t want to have to attend YouTube’s Copyright School!  The musical theme that accompanies the opening scenes is enough to deter any potential copyright scofflaw.
