    • Why the hell are we still on EEworld?!!!! We really need to stop using this site! Yongs plea to EEworld at the end made me laugh.... YT is never and will never do anything about it Yong. You know this so why waste your breath? This is the way communists/socialists think. Guilty until proven innocent.

    • You guys should really check out the Legal Eagle channel on EEworld where an actual lawyer breaks down this hole situation and turns out Jukin isn't really extorting MxR, and MxR isn't quite as innocent or as big of victims as they play it up.

    • Mxr plays has done a good job at using the EEworld drama method to gain public support when they should have spoke to a lawyer or at least someone with legal expertise on how they should proceed. In one of their videos they start off by saying something like," I'm going to play a bunch of different videos in order to make Jeanie laugh." This isn't a strong case of fair use. You also can't expect to get rid of the fines by editing your videos after the fact. You can't return a stolen car and expect to remove any charges of auto theft. If you are using copyrighted videos through fair use, you don't have to worry about being charged for using copyrighted material. If you use copyrighted material in your video and just say it's funny, you should be more worried about being charged for using copyright material and learn about what constitutes fair use. What EEworld needs to do better is to better educate all content creators on what constitutes fair use. Playing a copyrighted video in the corner of the screen while showing footage of you laughing isn't much different front straight up reuploading the copyrighted video in the eyes of fair use.

  • This also happened recently to a guy named Gareth Evans. His channel Goliath Guitar Tutorials was hit with 5 copystrikes. He wrote free guitar tabs for his viewers. He had to take down 400 videos of free tabs that he wrote. And remove his site with those tabs. Now he has to license his tabs and charge people for them. Stupid corporations and their greedy hands. Funny thing is they were already making money off of his videos. They just wanted more

  • MxR was in the wrong. Reaction videos are not fair use, for the most part. The Volcano video reaction wasn't a small portion. It was the whole video. You might not like it, but someone else owns it. This is different from the =3 case. That clearly had a transformative purpose. Jukin media was in the wrong. They have the right to threaten legal action, especially legal action that has a good chance to be meritorious. That's not extortion as it is legally defined under US law. Where things get sketchy is the threatening of copyright strikes. Even if MxR legally owes Jukin money, Jukin media has to walk a fine line. Threatening someone with a criminal complaint, as opposed to a civil complaint, unless you pay them money, IS extortion as defined by law. So where does a copyright strike fall? It's not a criminal complaint, but it's not exactly a civil complaint either, since it's internal to EEworld and not in the court system. For example, demanding that someone pay you money or you will reveal their affair to their spouse IS extortion. Threatening a copyright strike, rather than merely seeking financial damages your entitled to, might be seen as akin to the advice example. Then again, issuing strike is a formal thing with a appeals process. So a good case can be made either way. So is it actually extortion as legally defined or just aggressive and unethical collection practices? Smart people can disagree. In any event, the fact that MxR kept having it's videos claimed by Junkin means it had fair warning. It most likely did not make fair use of the content in reproduced. They are six or maybe seven figure EEworld channel. To act like they are some small mom and pop shop that can't afford legal advice is ridiculous. They aren't the little guy, and nether is Jukin. Jukin however, acted in a legally gray area. They may not have broken the law, but they certainly were right on the line between legal and ilegal. So in the end, given that both sides had problems and did stupid things, it's not surprising that they settled out of court. Had MxR simply sought sound legal advice they could have avoided all of this. They could havereached a global settlement licensing agreement with Jukin. Instead, they acted out of ignorance of what the law actually says. This is a lesson for business people everywhere. When in doubt, seek sound legal advice. And finally, some people of EEworld won't care what the facts are. They will just always side with the creator. Unfortunately, the law and the facts actually matter.

  • I'm a fan of Fallout and Skyrim and enjoy videos about such games. This has prompted YT to direct me to MxR's channel in the past. Here is my undoubtedly unpopular opinion: the nature of his videos - and seemingly to an extent, himself - are simply perverse and juvenile. Slutty character models used for thumbnail clickbait in most of the videos recommended from his channel and from what I saw, a good part of his library. Does this excuse YT and Jukin Media of their actions? Absolutely not. Does this change my opinion of MxR? Not really. The dude strikes me as a creep, his girlfriend doesn't help that matter and his channel contains arguably questionable material. A controversy/scandal like this falls under "not surprising" or "inevitable". That is my end of my unpopular opinion.

  • So, hot take here, but I don't agree with MxR on this one. This is a complicated issue. First, let's start off with EEworld's responsibility in this. Absolutely none. This is between the copyright holder and the potential copyright infringer. The only thing that I believe EEworld has done wrong here, and that they could easily fix, is the "3 strikes and your channel is deleted" policy/system they've implemented. All that system does is encourage abuse as any nefarious party can strike 3 videos and the content creator would have little ability to handle things since their channel would be removed. How it should work is 3 strikes and your ability to post *new* content is taken away. Essentially locking the account from new activity and only allowing the user to appeal the existing strikes. All monetization would be disabled for the period the account was locked for. This would allow the content creator to deal with copyright strikes calmly without worrying their channel would be removed from existence. Then after say 6 months of an account being locked only then would EEworld delete the account. Gives plenty of time for the copyright holders to appropriately respond to appeals. Back to the MxR issue, while yes, it sucks that Junkin sent them a large fine per clip instead of just content ID matching them and taking the revenue that way, MxR still took somebody else's property without permission. And frankly, "reaction" videos are really the lowest form of entertainment in my opinion. For something to be "fair use" it has to be transformative in nature and fit within the confines of "news, comment, criticism, and education". Reacting to stuff may barely fit comment or criticism but that's interpreting it very loosely. Especially the kind of reaction videos where the content creator is literally watching the entire source video and just saying a few words and making a few facial expressions here and there. How anybody derives entertainment from somebody else watching entertainment is beyond me. My opinion aside, the point is that kind of video really skirts the line of being able to claim "fair use" and I would certainly would not be clinging to it for this example. Also, something Yong said, "it's clear Junkin isn't going out of their way to protect the license of these clips"...I mean...that's exactly what they're doing. What do you think "protect the license" means? Somebody pays the original owner of the clip some portion of revenue from the license fee associated with being able to use that clip. If somebody plays that clip without obtaining the license they're essentially stealing the clip for free and the original creator doesn't get any money thus defeating the purpose of why they went to Junkin Media in the first place. "Protecting the license" means exactly what Junkin did here. Preventing people from using a clip they did not legally buy the rights to show. If they didn't do that then they literally aren't protecting anything. Also suggesting that Junkin should be looking through MxR's entire video library to politely tell them what pieces of their property are stolen is like asking the victim of theft to look at all the property in a thief's house and politely let the thief know which items were stolen so they could have it back. Saying well, MxR didn't know the clips were owned by Junkin is not an excuse. No content creator should just take random stuff from the internet and assume it's free game to use. Everything is owned by somebody and just because you can't find who that original owner was doesn't mean you're free to just use it. Claiming ignorance is not a defense here. "Well the clips were on reddit and nobody seemed to care there"...so? Because somebody doesn't get in trouble in one location doesn't make something less illegal somewhere else. What MxR should do is lawyer up. Internet shaming Junkin Media is going to do nothing here. They're a business and they have a fairly valid claim against MxR for using their content without a license. Yes, the way Junkin Media went about dealing with this feels pretty scummy as it has the appearance of picking on the little guy, however, at the end of the day it is their content and they are allowed to charge whatever they want for people to use it legally. You can't just grab whatever you want from the internet and do what you want with it and claim fair use unless you understand what fair use actually means. And here, it really seems like MxR doesn't actually understand what fair use means. If they were "reviewing" the clips that would be one thing as that more clearly falls under criticism but "reacting" is really not a review. If I watch a movie and then say, "it was bad" at the end of the movie, I would have reacted to it. If I detail why it was bad and give examples from the movie saying exactly why it was bad, that's a review. The purpose of that review is to inform people about that piece of media which is different than the original purpose of the media to entertain (thus, transformative). A reaction is just watching somebody else be entertained (or not be entertained) by a piece of media.

    PacMonster0PacMonster010 місяців tagasi
    • Also wanted to add on to the argument that, "well their clips were only some small portion of the whole video", that defense doesn't really work for this particular kind of content. A reaction video tends to show the entire source material. Even if it's just a 15 second clip and the reaction video contains say 10 clips in it, that's 100% of somebody else's piece of content being used. This isn't the same scenario of say a movie reviewer using a 10 second clip from a movie to visualize a point they're trying to make about that scene. It would be one thing if the content creator was adding say illustrations or complicated edits or really going into a thorough analysis of the clip. Then the clip really would be a small portion of the overall effort that went into making the video. However, when it's just a collection of clips and the "effort" by the content creator is just doing the same kind of facial expressions and light commentary on what they're seeing then that is not really the same thing.

  • Ugh, here we go again! How can we agree on so many topics - yet this Jukin Media Copyright issue goes over your head. *YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT under Fair Use to PROFIT off of someone else's Copyright* . If you are reviewing or critiquing the work that is fair use. To use the product unchanged is NOT fair use, to use it exactly as the intended meaning in your own video is NOT Fair Use, to profit from using the product via ads is NOT Fair Use. Keep in mind, these people who gave their work to Jukin to manage on their behalf WANT to make money off their video. *YOU DON'T GET TO DECIDE FOR THESE PEOPLE who has to pay them or not* . YOU are not the original creator. You DO NOT get to make money off their video while they don't. Also, you can use said disputed videos by buying a license - like $49. Something you all seem to balk at. Hypocrites at what a Capital Free Market System is about yet all say you are for the free market.

  • A lot of people don't seem to understand that this wasn't fair use. One requirement is that it must be a transformative work, which this isn't. It is just memes and whatnot stripped from Reddit and read aloud. It matters not if small commentary was added, there was no significant transformative change. Another thing to consider is how much was stripped. A movie critique doesn't need to show the entirety of a movie, and neither does MxR, but they do anyways. It wasn't a snippet, they were frame by frame readings of the clips. Another factor of Fair Use is does the content appeal/steal the same audience. It certainly does, as again, it is just the exact meme ripped and read aloud.

  • Here from LegalEagle's video on the topic. He covers the thing from a legal angle comprehensively. He looks at both sides and has a lot of *practical* stuff to say. I highly recommend everyone who's following this story to watch it.

  • Mxr plays has done a good job at using the EEworld drama method to gain public support when they should have spoke to a lawyer or at least someone with legal expertise on how they should proceed. In one of their videos they start off by saying something like," I'm going to play a bunch of different videos in order to make Jeanie laugh." This isn't a strong case of fair use. You also can't expect to get rid of the fines by editing your videos after the fact. You can't return a stolen car and expect to remove any charges of auto theft. If you are using copyrighted videos through fair use, you don't have to worry about being charged for using copyrighted material. If you use copyrighted material in your video and just say it's funny, you should be more worried about being charged for using copyright material and learn about what constitutes fair use. What EEworld needs to do better is to better educate all content creators on what constitutes fair use. Playing a copyrighted video in the corner of the screen while showing footage of you laughing isn't much different front straight up reuploading the copyrighted video in the eyes of fair use.

  • When Jukin Media says "rightful owners" they are refering to themselves not the original people who shot the videos. Jukin has also changed their name to Jukin Copyright Management...don't let them run!

  • Yongyea, everything you’re saying about this topic is wrong. Jukin media is in the right here.

  • Ummm, Jukin media is actually in the right here. Why are so many commenters not realizing this? And all of the youtubers who are standing up for mxRplay are shooting themselves in the foot.

    • No, they aren't, they are not in risk. At all. And Jukin on the right... sorry, but no.

  • I'm all for internet trolls getting their comeuppance but have you seen the video about this topic on Legaleagle. Being a laymen the points made their seems reasonable.

  • To say it right away. The only way to bring justice to this is simply by sabotaging Jukin Media. How? If you have the chance to see if it is a video by Jukin Media you are about to watch, don't watch it. The only issue here is, that this will also hurt other EEworldrs that are with Jukin Media and have no real problem with MxR using those videos or whatever. But this is how big companies work these days. They can only get shown their place, if those people they try to "please" show how angry they are.

  • Wow, i did not know that Yong is an actual copyright lawyer. Man he should just straight up go represent MxR pro bono if this is the case. Or you know, listen to the advice of actual lawyers who all said that Jukin actually has a case there, and that MxR got shafted because they were producing bottom of the barrel content that relied on others people content, instead of actually putting in enough effort for it to count as transformative work and thus be fair use.

    • Not all lawyers are saying that. Indeed, most say that both parts are not really interested in carrying it to court. Jukin might have acted in an unlawful way with the 6000 $ thing. Certain kind of pressure and acts are borderline with not so pretty behaviors.

  • EEworld in a sense is what you can call a "necessary evil". It's a grand repository for information, education, and entertainment-based videos. But at the same time because of the misguided and dysfunctional system made to protect only themselves and no one else, it now limits what content people can provide or you as a user is able to get. Now I understand that as a company they have laws to follow and have to protect their interest but even fast-food restaurants make some attempt at protecting the interest of their employees. It only makes sense if you want people to operate your stores because I'm sure customers aren't going to go to the restaurants, make their own food and then put the money in the registers at their own accord. It's something to think about EEworld. If creators are afraid to make content, how many active videos to do think you'll have available to swarm with back-to-back ads?
