Thanks to this thread on VI Forum: “WHoaa, everyone go check your Youtube Channels because due to their new TikTok-like feature called, Shorts, they are allowing users to sample creator’s videos!!”
So I check my youtube videos and a new option has been added to every video I have ever uplaoded, and by default it is enabled!?!
Since it is an apparently new feature I checked some of my older videos, and every video has been set to allow sampling. From what I read this is to enable TikTok like creation of derivative videos, which I would specifically disallow. But the only way to do that is to manually open each video, click edit, scroll down to the new option and disable it. How the FCK is that legal?
And they state some content is not allowed to opt out?
