With the recent news about “Claim Your Content”, my concern is that by building a tool for legitimate rights holders to police their content, Google will also enable those who would abuse it. The company has yet to reveal how it plans to restore content as quickly and easily as it can be taken down, and its decisions to favor business potential over freedoms of speech are still growing, even after its China debacle.
If an organization like Scientology can use copyright law as a bullying tactic to censor video content like The Bridge, imagine what a national party, government or international corporate conglomerate could do.
