No Sound and Fury

In "YouTube Now Mutes Videos With Unauthorized Copyrighted Music - ouch!" Media Futurist predicts some of the unintended consequences of a move that will strip out soundtracks even from video content that potentially serves to educate, critique, satirize, or protest, even if most of the examples being pointed to at present are of the rock video copy or song playing under picture of album cover variety. It's interesting to note that there are even defenders of the move in YouTubia, as this video from Philip DeFranco shows, who argue that the webcam vlogging head format of commentary represents a less derivative and therefore more worthwhile genre.
