Netflix, YouTube lead video services in Brazil

Netflix and YouTube were consistently the first choice of video services, across all devices even in pay-TV households. When IHS Markit reviewed such homes, fewer than half of Sky Brasil households selected the service as their first choice, and they were less likely to have a first choice, while two-fifths of Net Servicos households responded similarly. – Joseph O’Halloran, Rapid TV News » http://bit.ly/2UdW3sa

That means the money that wasn’t supposed to be earned by anybody is now going to those companies, and the film that was supposed to be commercial-free, per the agreement between Star Wars Theory and Lucasfilms, will now have advertisements. It’s upset Star Wars Theory—who said he hired a composer to create original music for his film, meaning it shouldn’t have been copyright claimed. – Josh Katzowitz, The Daily Dot » http://bit.ly/2RwVGvS

YouTube’s policies do state that creators can not promote spam, deceptive practices, or scams, even through partnerships. – Julia Alexander, The Verge http://bit.ly/2F56IB4
