This nightmare last occurred in November. As if overnight, once the TV show hits in each big video website extinguished. Many American fans on the BBS complaints see his struggling after watching show, and also someone complain video website deleted his spare time hard with the TV show. Upload
Many people guess this American TV's disappearance and 2009 April that similar. At that time,Gossip Girl on dvd issued the sarft on strengthening the Internet audio-visual programmes "notice of content management, provide not obtained a permit films, TV on the Internet such language scripts may not spread. This time, the sarft November 12 released the radio, film and television intellectual property strategy implementation opinion ".
Optimal cool and potatoes are said this is their voluntary behavior. "We are listed stage,scrubs on dvd can't offer pirated content." An anonymous potatoes employees said.
On November 10 and November 16, potatoes and optimal cool to the SEC has submitted a listing application. If all goes well, they will be in early December in nasdaq and respectively nyse.
When these video site listed in the United States, once because litigated, followed by the piracy is the law and not the laws of China, damages will exceed the scope of what they can afford. An example is a reference in 2007, to Google and its viacom filed under copyright infringement proceedings, YouTube claim 10 billionSpartacus:Blood and Sand dollars. After these video website in domestic faces piracy lawsuit, but the claim amount is not high.
Suffer not only, also be cleared American TV broadcast license and no drama, Korean port. Some port fans found online TVB drama "YiHai passion" together, the video before no longer update is also deleted.
The removed episodes mostly users to upload. A year ago, optimal cool, potatoes, cool 6 nets and other network video company is using YouTube video mode, allowing users to upload. However in order to increase the sources and attract more video website traffic, some in the name of users to upload pirated content, including website also includes lots of hot reflects American shows. This has almost become industry within an open secret.
Although American TV fans look a lot, but the reality is, the American play video website broadcast quantity and domestic drama is still far. Sohu video, for example, with the 2010 ended November 28 data show, broadcast quantity can only 50 top boffins of "lost"; If you look at the November 28 day, the first eighteen are domestic drama, beauty fans held "life big heat explosion" and "gossip girl" only row to 26 respectively and 28 bits. And may encounter compared the huge compensation on American TV, piracy with flow and advertising appear insignificant.
Sohu video is now a few American TV could still see in one of the web site, it won the Warner Brothers license from cold case collectionSeptember this year, after the start and American broadcast simultaneously life big bang "and" gossip girl "show. Cool in this beautiful 6 nets also launched the drama season synchronization of vampire diaries "second season.
Sohu in early 2000 has landed nasdaq, cool 6 nets is on August 17 through equity transfer on nasdaq officially put up for sale. In 2009 was hua youshi discipline and acquisitions preparation before listing, cool and have begun to delete no copyright video. Potatoes and optimal cool video website, China after the main players arena already in overseas listing.
Even without overseas listing, video website also began to reflect their long-term earnings piracy what influence. Bring By the end of 2009, Coca-Cola because in optimal cool platform on video piracy advertise, be optimal friends in tort joint liability zyprexa company against the court. This case reminded the video site in advertisers may face litigation risk.
If you can't bring advertising revenue, uploading pirated video just in cost bandwidth and no commercial value. bones tv seriesPotatoes nets CEO wang wei said in a BBS admiral those brand advertisers don't agree with video and enormous website traffic described as "industrial waste".
Copyright and profit model becomes all video sites won't last hurdle YouTube earnings hopeless, and mode Hulu model seems to become mainstream.
And YouTube, Hulu and different many TV stations and film company across an agreement through authorization to users, vod video resources provided free of charge. Hulu launched in 2008, when he won the $90 million income. Now although it accounts for only 1% of U.S. network video flow, but gets 33% of the advertising share. For its imitators are concerned, the Numbers certainly full of temptation.
Chinese video website in the industry are adopted, such as sohu video Hulu mode of strange arts under and baidu, from the very beginning, sohu hits the original banner in 3 years has said he'll put 2 million yuan RMB for purchasing copyright. Optimal cool, cool 6 and potatoes these old website also doing similar transformation. two and a half menIn its prospectus, optimal cool says such as film and professional production content will become the main content of the site, only a few is users to upload and website homemade content.
Followed by a genuine film copyright race. Some video site really hoped to buy the copyright American play to win the American fans of favor, they feel this will let oneself and rival differences, and can obtain high quality user groups. "American shows attract user groups will attract some specific advertisers." Cool 6 marketing planning center general manager DingLing green said. "The vampire diaries" have attracted the dell's advertising, and in the sohu video loreal gossip girl "launched advertising.
However overseas copyright introduce has its own troubles. In these copyrighted video put on video platform, these video website before needed to obtain the permit sarft. In April last year sarft issued a notice, it is the paper Internet company like television requirements as get permission to broadcast the introduction of TV dramas. This makes the Internet enterprise had to wait for long examination and approval procedure sarft, and various restrictions may also make the introduction of drama in the majority, in Hong Kong and Taiwan piece American TV dramas, but they, tapes of sight.
Most lets the video site FaChu or exorbitant royalties. Even looks big success of Hulu, also faces copyright buy burn money too much trouble. Because through Internet advertising revenues from far below TV commercials, cannot support big spending, from June Hulu started testing paid service, this was called the HuluCriminal Minds on dvd
Plus service has officially opened in early November, $9.99 monthly charges.
Besides, Hulu as news corporation, NBC universal and Disney joint product, backed by the three media giant dashan, it to acquire and purchasing copyright already possess obvious advantages, such background video website in China cannot be reproduced.
Video website for domestic drama for the original price for copyright will have a push. In its prospectus optimal cool in 2008, and introduced the film, compared to 2009 rose more than 200%, copyright expenses in 2010 and rose more than 100%. And a popular American shows synchronous broadcasting copyright may spend millions of dollars, more than the price of homebred play up to dozens of times.
They must be more cost-effective. Cool and now in buying more meticulous copyright before can do sons of anarchy series 1-3the user survey, including on the web site on questionnaire. "In the meeting I would suggest we buy things to buy more fine point, buy net friend very hope see things." DingLing green said.
Cool 6 nets started through and overseas cooperate the copyright ways to reduce costs divided. And the direct buyout copyright different, and in this way means that copyright square provide free copyright, cool 6 nets charging users, and would benefit and copyright to profit sharing.
Optimal cool has also started to try to charge in its web site, already appeared "paid" whether the option to allow the user to select the column, mostly paid under American movies, such as "confinement island" and "godfather".
Perhaps this will attract more users complain. For many has been used to "free" Chinese users, collectgreys anatomy on dvd fees will be a fatal blow to, they are likely to change other web sites.
"Some of our competitors have more long operation than our history and strong financial resources... other competitors may continue to provide piracy video from the gains." In its prospectus optimal cool "risk factors," a so instructions. And these are all video industry, the problems facing their competitors.
