Google has filed a patent dispute with WIPO against the Youtubeconverter.io website. The platform in question facilitates the download of music and video content from YouTube, something that poses harm to copyright holders.
The American giant has also informed the UK government that it will reinforce the fight against piracy tutorials, dissemination of pirated IPTV lists, videos that teach how to make crack paid programs, as well as other illegal formats.
YouTube will strengthen the fight against piracy in 2021
For YouTube, downloading videos and content may be a violation of copyright. This taking into account that this content is frequently uploaded back to your and other platforms, without the proper authorization to do so.
The platform has informed the UK government that it will strengthen the means of quick removal and blocking of channels dedicated to publishing content that teaches how to pirate programs; to create and disseminate pirated IPTV lists and illegal means of streaming.
Bearing in mind that the music industry earns millions of euros in revenue from YouTube every year, the platform will also want to ensure the satisfaction of these great actors. Now, one of the main threats is the possibility of downloading videos from YouTube. Something as simple as opening one of the various services for that and placing the link of the desired video.
The Google platform wants to eradicate “pirated” content
Likewise, the tools – and tutorials for using them – of streaming illegal content is another of the rising categories on YouTube. For the Google platform, this is one of the biggest threats to tackle with new measures.
YouTube also points the finger at tutorials and how to’s that arrive every day on your servers. People are increasingly looking for alternative and often illegal means of accessing paid content for private or public use.
The trend may have been exacerbated by the pandemic COVID-19, with more people at home looking for entertainment. Given this trend, pirated IPTV had a new peak in popularity, also reaching YouTube with several tutorials and tips.
In practice, if people want to learn to download music illegally, there are plenty of videos and guides with millions of views.
Blocking and restrictions are some of the measures of Google and YouTube
Google and YouTube provided the British Parliament with a list of measures to combat piracy. Despite being an authentic cat and mouse game, the platform claims to be able to quickly block stream-ripers and similar content.
“We are continually improving our usage policies, tools, functions and features “, YouTube said of the new anti-piracy measures to be applied in the UK and Europe.
Regarding the streams paid channels through YouTube, the platform claims to be on top of this scourge. Similarly, pirated IPTV tutorials, and disguised recommendations for iPTV channel lists, are also in Google’s sights.
The platform quotes “improvements in technical infrastructure”, in order to improve the detection, blocking and removal of these channels. It is, as she acknowledges, hard work and in constant renovation, but promises to take all legal actions.
Indeed, YouTube promises to use subpoenas and other means to reduce piracy on its video platform.
How to download videos from YouTube? The new prohibited category.
This type of platforms will be pursued by Google. This is one of the measures already underway, aiming to hinder the misappropriation of others’ videos. It is, however, another Herculean effort in view of the great diversity of platforms for downloading videos.
The heart of the new measures lies in combating apology tutorials or instruction on how to watch television and channels premium without pay. Videos that, for example, show how to take advantage of pirated IPTV, or that show lists of IPTV channels.
From pirated IPTV to movies and series on YouTube
In the eyes of YouTube this is one of the biggest plagues on its platform, admitting it to the British government. Something that has been irritating the great players of the music and entertainment industry, they also put pressure on Google.
