Comment: I think it's a mistake to approach internet media this way

(See in situ)


I think it's a mistake to approach internet media this way

You can't stop the copying of videos. You are better off embracing it and working within the reality of the situation. You can white knuckle it and report people left and right for copyright violations or you can let them put up the videos and hope it brings in more viewers.

This concept I learned from Alex Jones. It seems to me the more he lets people copy, the more he gets seen. And the more he gets seen, the more followers he gets. This in turn ends up getting him more financial supporters, advertisers and ultimately subscribers. I truly think one of the reasons Alex Jones is so successful is that he allows all his videos to be shared freely, yet asks people to buy them to support him. Somehow it all works out and everyone ends up profiting. No one can deny that Alex has only grown year after year.

That's my 2 cents
