Illegal Video Download Site Loses to Copyright Infringement
One of the biggest problems with videos on the Internet is that they are often stolen by other individuals. There are many platforms available for people to steal content such as music, video, and other copyrighted work. KeepVid.com was no exception, until this week. KeepVid existed primarily to allow individuals to download copyrighted videos from the sites like Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, and Dailymotion. While the site has not been completely removed, it now contains educational content about copyright infringement and illegal video downloading, acknowledging that downloading videos illegally is not permitted. Not only that, the website now contains a graphic indicating where people tend to download videos from illegally, with YouTube at 92 percent, followed by Lynda at 5 percent, Dailymotion at 2 percent, and Facebook at 1 percent.
This is clearly just one step in the ongoing battle against illegal video downloading but this is where a significant amount of illegal downloads comes from so it is pretty monumental in the grand scheme of things.
