Consternation among youtubers as they will have to pay copyright on 'reacts to' videos

Two YouTubers have been told to pay $6,000 (£4,600) or risk losing their YouTube channel completely.

MxR and Potastic Panda are known for making videos where they react to memes and other online content.

But it turns out four videos they watched have been bought up by a media company, which has slapped them with a bill for infringing its copyright.

And unless they pay, their channel could now be removed due to the nuances of YouTube's copyright system.

Err good. No wait. Baaaaad.

Oh I don't know. I just watch FailArmy videos and old episodes of Kitchen Nightmares on YouTube.

I am just about to post a video of me reacting to the news.

They should in return send a bill of say, ooh, $6,000, to the media company, for advertising and promoting their content.

Is this like Harry Enfield's Double Take Brothers only done by spotty weeds on those Internets?

Quite. I've wondered elsewhere about completing online brief survey questions from the like of the esteemed Beeb, and then sending them a bill for the management consultation.

It's not really management consultation, is it.

It's better.
