I know that this thread, if followed will reduce the activity of this particular section of the forum but at the end of the day, less noise and more actual information is very very important. I've been keeping tabs on the copyright forum because I agree with the staff that it has real value. We deal with copyright issues all the time on YouTube and the more people know, the better. However, there are a significant number of posts that have been made in response to others questions asserting knowledge of copyright that is quite simply wrong. Please please please, if you don't know the answer to something, don't pretend you do, don't guess or give what you think the answer should be. This is not like the strategy or technique forum where there are a huge variety of correct answers. Copyright doesn't have the same amount of variance and your best guess could get someone in trouble. Unlike the rest of the forum, barring some legal issues relating to networks and contracts, copyright is a dangerous topic. This stuff can get channels closed down. So, here's my request. If you really want to help in the copyright forum that's cool, but please be willing to take some time and do some research. If you know the answer, then for sure let people know. If you're kinda sure, be 100% sure before you post advice. Post your sources even so people can read up on it for themselves. As I said, I totally agree that this forum is needed. YouTubers need this kind of assistance and information. We just need less guessing because when it comes to copyright, sometimes you don't get a second chance.
