Dtube Original Dtuber I've been on Dtube since it was first created and was asked by @tibfox to do this short verification video to prove that all the video content that I upload to my Dtube channel is my intellectual property. Made by me.
Shocking as it may seem. Some people steal your videos and upload them elsewhere on the web. While some may see this as a compliment that your content is considered worthy of copying. It gets a bit annoying when they are monetizing it and not even giving you a credit as the content creator.
I have issued several DMCA take down notice's on some big video sharing platforms that do not verify their content creators or thier videos.
This can take a lot of time to sort out and while the stolen videos are getting views your videos are often not getting seen? This is a search engine algorithmic problem that favours newer content. If you have had a video online for a number of years and then a thief copies and reuploads it. This new upload can be given more weight in search results because of it's newness.
Why Dtube? Dtube is hosted on it's own blockchain which is timestamped so there can be no dispute about ownership.
If people enjoy your content and like it. Your content can earn DTC tokens from those likes. DTC are a crypto token that you can sell on exchanges or directly to other people for currency of your choice.
