At the AllThingsD conference at the end of May, Google executive Susan Wojcicki was asked to defend the company from charges made by superagent Ari Emanuel the night before, who had claimed Google does not do enough to combat piracy.“So I think he was misinformed. Very misinformed,” Wojcicki said of Emanuel. “First of all, we have done as much as we possibly can. We do not want to be building a business based on piracy. We want to work with the content owners, we want to be able to make sure that business is built on content owners who want to have that content distributed across search and YouTube.”The influx of pirated movies comes as Apple has reportedly pulled the YouTube app from iOS 6, although Google is also apparently writing a standalone YouTube app for Apple’s app store.But it isn’t like this piracy hasn’t cropped up on YouTube before: plenty of pirated movies – including recent blockbusters – were found there by this author almost a year ago as well.Dozens of “Hits”In all, a quick search by ReadWriteWeb found dozens of movies that have been uploaded to the service, from blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides, Pixar classics including Cars, Cars 2 and Finding Nemo.The latter three were uploaded from an account known as “FullMovieUpload1”. In some cases, such as the Pixar movies, the pirated movie was found near or next to a link to a paid, authenticated version of the film that Google offered through a partner. Many foreign films have also been uploaded, although copyright issues in other countries are subject to their own laws and restrictions.As in earlier years, full movies can either be found by searching through the main search box, or else via the list of recommended movies that accompany them. Helpfully, some movies like the explicit Ken Park have been age-restricted by the community.How Did We Get Here?YouTube enforces a 10-minute limit on uploaded videos, but users qucikly found they could simply break up longer clips into ten-minute chunks, with helpful pointers to the next clip in the series.In 2010, YouTube eliminated that the 10-minute limit for some trusted users, some of whom quickly used their new-found freedom to upload copyrighted clips.Traditionally, YouTube has had a “three strikes and you’re out” policy with regards to copyright; in 2011, the company forced offenders to attend “copyright school” to learn what they could and could not upload.Today, Google uses an automated system called “Content ID” to identify possibly copyrighted films and TV shows and take them down before they’re actually live on the site. At the AllThingsD conference, Google executive Sundar Pichai described the process this way:“It is automatic in many ways,” Pichai said. “There’s no human intervention. It’s a piece of software that runs and tries to identify it… it’s an extremely challenging problem, technical computer science problem.“It’s a quality issue, just like image recognition or voice recognition,” Pichai added. “The technology behind the Content ID system is fairly impressive, and it keeps getting better. And I think whats important is that it’s a tough area to scan through a video, and know for sure that it’s copyrighted, and who owns the copyright. And I think it’s something that we have invested a lot in, I think it’s over 50,000 hours of engineering we have invested in… $30 million on this project alone.”A Google spokesman also noted that YouTube users upload 72 hours of video every minute, making the process of identifying copyrighted content even more challenging. ReadWriteWeb provided the URL of the uploaded The Avengers movie to Google at 11:25 am Pacific Time, Tuesday, which Google presumably will remove.Wojcicki also addressed what Google representatives have previously claimed: first, that it’s unclear who owns the copyright to a given movie, and second, that Content ID requires the copyright holder to notify Google before a movie can be pulled down. Finally, some copyright holders choose to leave content on YouTube in order to monetize or sell ads against it.“At the end of the day, we need to hear from the content owner,” Wojcicki claimed.Clear BreakdownsThe problem, of course, is that it’s hard to believe that the uploaded versions of The Avengers or Blaze were done legitimately to “monetize” the movie. And while it’s possible that the poor quality of the movies fooled Content ID, a general search for “full movie” could be a clue that Google needs to inspect the files more closely.Interestingly, Google’s Content ID system has had some successes. Movies that were uploaded last year – Fast Five, Scream 4,, Black Hawk Down, and others – don’t seem to have made a reappearance.Meanwhile, things may be about to change. In April, a German court ruled that Google must detect future violations of copyrighted content after a rights holder alerts the company the first time.Will YouTube be able to meet that standard?You can check for yourself: Just type “full movie” into the YouTube search bar every so often. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Like a Hollywood sequel, pirated movie hits are back on YouTube – and this time they’re more prevalent than ever.A year ago, users uploaded a number of pirated movies to Google’s YouTube video service and were eventually taken down. And now movies are back – to the point where if you don’t want to pay for the summer’s biggest blockbusters, you don’t have to:The Avengers is on YouTube, as is the latest Pixar movie, Brave.Yes, they’re so-called “cammed” films, which means that they were recorded illegally at a theater with a camcorder, and then uploaded. The quality is poor, with resolutions nowhere near a legitimate copy of the film. But they’re free, and with YouTube’s reach, totally ubiquitous – until they’re taken down. Which could be any minute, of course.In the last month or so, movie piracy has taken hold of YouTube like wildfire. While the number of current releases is small, finding older films isn’t that hard.Just Search for “Full Movie”The keywords? Just two: “full movie”.All a user needs to do then is check the running length of the film – if it’s 90 minutes or so, chances are that it’s the whole movie. An easier way is to simply filter out the shorter reviews and trailers by appending “, long” to the search or by ticking the appropriate option within the “Filter” drop-down menu.Even Voltage Pictures, which has sued thousands of anonymous downloaders for copyright infringement, has been victimized: The Hurt Locker has been uploaded in two parts, although in German. Voltage representatives declined to comment.

MTV Staying Alive Foundation recently announced that its newest celebrity ambassador is the multi-award-winning and Grammy nominated singer/ songwriter Leona Lewis.“It is a great honour to be working with MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation as an ambassador,” she said. “I’m eager to raise awareness of the ongoing global HIV crisis. By empowering young people with knowledge about the disease – particularly women and girls who are disproportionately affected – we can help treat it and ultimately prevent it altogether.”Leona’s support for MTV Staying Alive comes at a pivotal time in the fight against HIV/AIDS, when millions of young people are at risk of infection and millions more face barriers to their sexual and reproductive health. While reports continue to laud the progress being made in the fight against HIV/AIDS, the data actually shows that young people, specifically young women and adolescent girls, are still at great risk.“We’re absolutely thrilled to have the extremely passionate and talented Leona Lewis join our ranks this year,” said Georgia Arnold, Executive Director, MTV Staying Alive Foundation. “Aside from her awesome voice – which we’ll be hearing later in the year – Leona is deeply committed to improving the lives of young people worldwide and especially those most vulnerable which of course includes adolescent girls.“Currently 90% of new infections among adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa occur in girls. Leona’s role as ambassador to the MTV Staying Alive Foundation could not come at a more crucial moment in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We’re really looking forward to working with Leona throughout 2017 to raise awareness of HIV and the devastating impact it continues to have on millions of young people globally.”AIDS is still the biggest killer of adolescents in Africa and the second biggest worldwide. In 2015 alone there were 2.1 million new infections and 7,500 women aged 15-24 became infected per week.Young girls are being hit particularly hard by the epidemic – in sub-Saharan Africa, 90% of all new infections among adolescents occurred in girls. That’s why, within the 37 youth-led HIV organisations MTV Staying Alive is working with in 2017, they are supporting some projects with a specific focus on women and girls.

CALGARY — WestJet isn’t wasting any time, announcing new service to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport from Calgary and Edmonton starting Jan. 19, 2017, just two days after competitor NewLeaf introduced its 2017 winter sun program with seasonal service on the same route.“We are proud of our expanding network of more than 100 cities in over 20 countries, and our reputation as an established, trusted brand with more than two decades of service to Canadians,” said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “We have provided hundreds of thousands of our guests with nonstop service between Canada and Phoenix since 2004, and now look forward to bringing low fares and our signature brand of caring, friendly service to our second destination in Arizona.”Just like NewLeaf, WestJet will offer three times weekly service from Calgary to Mesa (Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays) and once weekly service from Edmonton to Mesa, on Saturdays.NewLeaf is already battling it out with WestJet in Hamilton, now that the Calgary-based carrier has brought back several Hamilton routes including Vancouver, Edmonton and Halifax as well as a new route between Hamilton and Winnipeg, where NewLeaf is based.More news: Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesNewLeaf doesn’t pay commission, but it isn’t anti-travel agent, said NewLeaf CEO Jim Young in an interview earlier this year.“If we’re anti-anything, we’re anti-GDS,” he said. Agents can book and have been booking the airline directly for their clients, he added. “We’re anti-cost. We have to have the lowest operation costs we possibly can.” Tags: Arizona, New Routes, NewLeaf Travel, WestJet Posted by
