- The “Content Creators Coalition” is otherwise known as the major record labels. They hate YouTube more than anything and want a regime where takedowns are dealt with swiftly, there’s notice-and-stay-down and Safe Harbor rules don’t exist. They put up a video about this. It got swiftly taken down because it quoted other videos. Then it went back up after human review. They then complained that the site behaving as they demanded it act was “censorship.” Well done. The article details a pile of their other sketchy and completely in-character behaviour, including when interacting directly with the author of the article, as if they couldn’t guess TechDirt would talk about all of it at length.
n.b.: I’ve been reading the industry press talking about this, and none of them can bring themselves to admit who the “CCC” is a front group for, like the trail isn’t incredibly clumsy and obvious. But they know their brief.
