Help Fix YouTube’s Copyright School Fail  April 22, 2011 – 08:00 am
lawsuit and its renewed

Our friends over at Public Knowledge are holding a remix video contest in response to last week’s, YouTube “Copyright School”. Meant to reform violators of uploaded infringements by educating and then testing them on YouTube’s copyright policy, the school also does a pretty good job of pushing fair use out of the picture. Literally. As a result, PK is offering $1, 000 for the best remix or web video that more accurately explains both what you can and can’t do with copyrighted content.

After mounting pressures from Congress and media conglomerates, Google’s YouTube Copyright School is the company’s attempt at illustrating how they plan to discourage piracy and the illegal uploading and streaming of copyrighted content on their sites. As a result, Copyright School has simultaneously become a way for YouTube to standardize its copyright policies to promote video content with the lowest threat to corporate infringement while also instilling the fear of God in those who choose to rely on their legal rights under fair use.

It’s ultimately your responsibility to know whether you possess the rights for a particular piece of content before uploading it to YouTube. If you’re at all uncertain of your rights or whether a particular use of content is legal under your local laws, you should contact a qualified copyright attorney. Of course, the easiest way to avoid any potential issues is to create totally original content — perhaps by making the most of the creative tools available on the site.

Now in terms of this potential legal battle, it could get a little uncomfortable. HEre's why. What does your contract state specifically about copyrights? Most design contracts the copyright usually goes to the person who you are doing the desiging for, meaning your past employer re...ontract that you signed when you started working for him in terms of rights?
Also, you blatently threatened his business, which in general is not a good idea to do. Small claims court is the proper thing to do as well as a proper letter (not a verbal threat) letting him know that the website needs to be taken down according to such and such law until you are paid for your services, etc....

You have options. You mentioned

A contract, so the first thing you do is contact the person that you dealt with for the commission, point out what your contract was for, and the fact that you are aware the school is now using your copyrighted image.
Be nice, be friendly. Tell them that they are in violation of your copyrights, and you'd be happy to work out a financial arrangement that is beneficial to you so they can c...s the site for Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts
If you're feeling charitable, you can tell them you are going to now donate all the proceeds from future sales to some charity. Or keep the money.
The minute they give you a hard time, I would let them know that you are going to be contacting the local press on this issue. Because no matter what they say, they are taking advantage of you.
