Why is a binary compound
Almost as bad as raising the cost of medicines for profits, remember what happened to that guy? Reaction videos have been around since I can remember and these two guys want to own it. Voice your opinions below! I watched the video. This has nothing to do with a broad trademark of the word react which of course is impossible. They touch on that in this video, too. They created a great format with their x Reacts shows and now they want to expand the franchise. PNG x 88 KB.
In fact, my work owns a trademark for it , too. Still means that they want to profit share with anyone who does reaction videos and have legal grounds to remove any similar unauthorized content. Call me an idealist, but YouTube ought to be a market that is driven by quality of content. These guys probably do alright on YouTube already, and just want to squeeze a little more money out of the rest of the community for zero effort.
Whether they are successful or not, whether this kind of action is legal or not, my opinion is that this type of thing is morally abhorrent. Should everything people produce be free game or just video works? Should I be able to create a new Tomb Raider game? Is this reactionary over blatent copycats? I think the issue is how generic the claim is. I think you could classify reaction videos on YouTube as a genre?
Should someone hold the trademark rights to comedy films? What about all those reaction videos to a likeable character in a popular tv show getting poked? A YouTube stream of someone reacting to jump scares in a video game? Would they need to obtain the license for those? DMCA takedowns can be abused so much. YouTube has always had a policy of shoot first, ask questions later in response to them.
The test is whether consumers are being mislead. But, I can see how this would be upsetting to people who make similar videos. This is not a case of protecting consumers from being sold a mystery drink labled Coca-cola, and more like Coca-cola swinging their weight to collect fees on any other people who want to sell soda. The true test of intention is whether or not Fine Bros start issuing takedowns for reaction videos in general, and not just limit to protecting a particular defined and obvious format.
When they call it strats1. But they would have to clearly define what makes their format unique to others so there is a clear difference that can be measured against. Just saying hey, I trademarked cat videos.
Any videos with cats posted without my permission have to be taken down or pay me a percentage of your profits licensing. I just hate scummy people that try this kind of thing. Yes, this is exactly what a trademark is.
I explained that above in an earlier reply. Not sure where my earlier posts are getting lost in translation. This is not what they are doing and this is not what trademark is. A trademark, trade mark, or trade-mark is a recognizable sign, design, or expression which identifies products or services of a particular source from those of others.
You are free to create all the reaction style videos you want. Sure they put a ton of hard work into showing people reacting to things and got paid thusly. Exactly this, has someone trademarked the format of: Because if not then we may want to get a trademark on that! The subject is obfuscated in a ton of crap. They did make it popular and, again, they got paid for doing it.
Thankfully they seemed to have pissed in a ton of cheerios on this and people are coming out of the wood-work to oppose it. This video was taken from: Their twitter has them releasing many more videos after this one. Which have all been remove It would be great if we could find a dmca page or something to tell us they where claimed as some other reddit users have pointed out. May 1, FineBros announce " Seniors React " https: I thought this was a pretty decent representation of both sides: In the tech industry, we deal with it from patent holders all the time.
Why is that a problem? Emphasis mine You are free to create all the reaction style videos you want. So wait…how are those video formats theirs in the first place? How is this any different? Did they come up with it though, or did they just make it popular?
