Facebook Video Freebooting

Freebooting isn’t the same as sharing. Sharing is what the web built on, and there’s nothing wrong with it, assuming it done with respect and proper attribution, but that is a conversation for another day. Freebooting is piracy. It is copyright infringement. It is stealing, and you or someone you know is almost certainly guilty of it.

Just so it’s abundantly clear, those videos you see playing on Facebook these days are not YouTube videos. Most of them used to be YouTube videos, but now they are hosted by and live on Facebook, often illegally. Facebook no longer lets people watch actual YouTube videos in the news feed, but we’ll save that for another time.

Three ways you can stop this:
a) Capture the freebooting – take a snapshot or screen capture the page hosting the video
b) Comment on the freebooting material – Make a point of your video being stolen.
c) Contact the freebooter – contact the source or content creator and give him the freebooting evidence by including the link.
