YouTube has been one of the biggest names when it comes to the world of technology. As the biggest video platform and the world’s second largest search engine, the company has been growing at a very rapid pace, with more and more users viewing and adding content to it every day. YouTube has now been changing the way things work in the world of technology, and the company has ensured that the mistakes they make are not repeated. The company has noticed that there have been many wrongful takedowns of videos on the basis of copyright violations, and they have now assembled a team of humans to tackle the issue.
YouTube has been facing many allegations over unfair and wrongful video takedowns in the name of ‘copyright violations’. The company has admitted that a number of videos have wrongfully been taken down, but they are indeed working on it.
The company has now issued an official blog about it where policy team member Spencer has written that the feedback that the users have had over these takedowns has left an impact, and a team has now been created – “It’s caused us to look closely at our policies and helped us identify areas where we can get better. It’s led us to create a team dedicated to minimizing mistakes and improving the quality of our actions.”
The company has actually apologized for the mistakes that they have committed in the past, and they will now be giving it a greater attention. “We want you to know that we monitor video takedowns very closely, and while we haven’t seen a big change in the overall rate of removals, it’s true that we do make mistakes. For this, we’re sorry and we strive to do better by you, our community.”
This is indeed a reassuring move from YouTube, and the users once again have their faith in the brand restored.
