And I wonder how long it will be around…
I was once told that it wasn’t Disney which pulled all the company’s footage which found its way onto YouTube but YouTube itself. Companies like Disney would, apparently, like to have the viral marketing leverage that the site provides but YouTube retains copyright of all work posted to the site.
Some organisations make deals with YouTube under which they consent to allow some of their material to appear. So far Disney has not.
