Deeper analysis of VoIP

Content rights is a two way street

Posted by tggokul on April 18, 2007

Some parts of the recent Virginia Technology massacre was captured by a student on his cell phone and posted on Youtube. I am not giving a link to this video since I think it is deplorable that a person actually videoed this to get his 15 minutes of fame.

What was curious is some of the news channels showed this (Disclaimer* : I did not see it, but heard this from a friend of mine) video from Youtube. My question is, if Youtube is reprimanded for having videos whose content is owned by the traditional broadcasters, can Youtube get back at these guys for using their videos on their channels. Right to content is a two way street and Youtube should get back at these guys.

But if Youtube wants to be more dignified, it needs to remove the video that has been posted. Now that would be a class act.
