I just got my first strike by YouTube, and feel good about it!



As many of you know, well all of you know, Google is the King of the search engines, basically owning all of the internet. If you disagree, Google it, and check it out. It does. 

It also owns YouTube, the biggest, and most user friendly video viewer website ever. I watch it daily, hourly, I don’t even know how often I watch it, but like all of you, yes every single person who is reading this, except the Chinese. Well at least I think so.

Anyway, I write this blog, and I run a website about movies and TV shows. Well by run I mean I do what all of us movie and TV bloggers do, we get the news from each other, write it, and then to make our article better than the others we frantically search, yes you do, Google Images for the best photo to put in it and then we use our abused and calloused fingers to find the video that will let us give our viewers what we want. Through YouTube.



YouTube allows us to share things we don’t own, know existed, or even want to know existed, and view them, copy them, paste them, and not get that annoying three option, no you can’t, this isn’t yours, you can’t have it option you get from other exclusive videos websites. You all know what I mean.

So I decided to help my website get more viewers I made a YouTube channel, if that’s what you call it, and that I would post movie and TV trailers on it, you know to get more viewers. And so I posted the new Robocop trailer, and then a couple of more that I thought people would like.

And a red warning came through in the message board. 

I had breached a copyright, and had received my first of three strikes, three meaning I am banned from YouTube, and will possibly be whisked off to a camp somewhere for Google brainwashing therapy.

I have spoke to a lot of people about this and I have heard the same thing over and over from all of them. Oooh, a strike, you have to be careful now, watch your back, your world will collapse soon, starting with, well have you seen Enemy of the State, you know, with Will Smith, it will be like that soon. 

Honestly, it made me feel good.I know a YouTube channel is good for viewers, advertising, getting your stuff seen, but, honestly, it was a pain in the ass to set up, kept adding recommended channels it wanted me to watch, without a care for the smaller ones, the sites like me and you, and I only have two strikes left,

So I’ll keep copy and pasting if you don’t mind Google.
