Online Content Gets Legal

It's no secret that online video sites are plagued these days with material uploaded by users with no rights to do so, but not Revver! If you haven't checked it out yet, Revver allows you to upload videos and make money from advertising that follows the video as it travels around the internet. But, to be sure that users aren't making money off of someone else's stuff, Revver staff go through all the content that is uploaded. While it is great that Revver is trying out a business model that allows content creators to monetize their material, Revver has also adapted a forward-thinking attitude toward copyright. The policy is zero tolerance for infringement, but the staff have also created a copyright information page where content creators can get more information on the ins and outs, including a link to CSM's Copyright & Fair Use resources. If you've had any experiences with Revver, we'd love to hear how it's going.
