And so #Youtube won't allow the #Blender Foundation to share its creative commons licensed videos on the platform if they don't monetize it? Really? https://www.blendernation.com/2018/06/19/blender-foundation-youtube-update/ #b3d
@judeswae oooh boy.
Google picked the wrong fight.
@rysiek For sure. Although they definitely have the advantage here. How we plan to win this is a good question.
@judeswae publish everything on Vimeo, too.
@rysiek That's one way to see it. Though it's probably not solving the problem in the long term. I don't think we should silo creative commons content. We should encourage p2p distribution and discovery.
@judeswae absolutely. But the first step should be breaking out of the single walled garden the content is already in...
I mean, if Blender Foundation would host their own PeerTube instance, that would be amazing, obviously! ;)
