My Solution for Youtube

As recently reported by the Times, Viacom brought a lawsuit against Youtube for $1 billion dollars. They say, among other things, that Youtube is violating copyright, that Viacom's clips helped Youtube build a brand, and that Viacom has to spend unnecessary amounts of time finding their content to earmark it for removal by site moderators.

“Every day we have to scour the entirety of what is available on YouTube, so we have to look for our stuff,” Mr. Dauman [of Viacom] said. “It is very difficult for us and places an enormous burden on us.”

If Youtube really wants to fix its problems, it needs to go the route of Wikipedia, whose articles are policed by an army of volunteer moderators. Youtube currently has restrictions on the quality, size, and length of content that can be hosted on their site. If it offered certain Youtubers benefits that superceded these restrictions, they too could have an army of mods keeping their site out of trouble. And for free.
