facebook-freebooting

A few weeks ago Casey Neistat, who authored the popular YouTube channel, creates a humorous video showing how it would look in real life Aladdin. Filming of the two-minute clip, which you can see here, it takes two weeks, a significant investment in equipment and costumes and the difficult task of organizing photos in downtown New York. As you probably expect, the video is receive remarkable success and quickly collect millions of views. Soon after is downloaded, and uploaded illegally on Facebook and again collected millions of views. Neistat estimates of at least 20 million people have watched pirated versions of his work, which he has not received his rightful revenue.

This phenomenon is called freebooting and is particularly unpleasant issue on Facebook in recent months. Social network has no good mechanisms nor strong interest to detect and delete the illegally distributed content. On the contrary – more videos in a feed, no matter where they come from, means more time spent on Facebook and more ads viewed.
