The mind boggles as to why some news broadcasters shut down on people sharing their news coverage. It’s not a good look, particularly for a public broadcaster.
From the UK government website. Certain exceptions only apply if the use of the work is a ‘fair dealing’. For example, the exceptions relating to research and private study, criticism or review, or news reporting.
From the BBC website. You may also be able to use clips under the educational exceptions to copyright that allow limited use of copyright works without the permission of the copyright owner. Visit the GOV.UK 'Intellectual Property - Exceptions to copyright' page for further information.
It’s strange that the BBC appears to now have a policy of take down for those that share its news content. As someone who has regularly shared BBC content on behalf of the @theSNP for number of years, I’d be keen to find out why this is happening all of a sudden.
@YouTube operates a 3 strike policy, which means if you receive 3 copyright complaints, your account is terminated. A more sensible approach would be to contact the user and explain clearly why you want the content removed - instead of activating the termination of their account. If you receive three copyright strikes:<br />
<br />
- Your account, along with any associated channels, is subject to termination.<br />
- All the videos uploaded to your account will be removed.<br />
- You won't be able to create new channels.
But, in all honesty, I think it is impossible for a public broadcaster to explain why it’s actively taking down the accounts of people sharing its news content. It seems like an unwise act for an organisation that is attempting to rebuild trust.
