  • Some prominent YouTube influencers are praising the company
    after its latest update, which included new tools to make it easier
    for creators to identify flagged copyrighted material in
    videos. 
  • Before the update, creators had to search through videos to
    pinpoint the potential infringement. Now, a new time stamp feature
    identifies the policy violation.
  • YouTube stars like Philip DeFranco and Mr. Beast applauded the
    company on Twitter in reaction to the update.

Some top YouTube creators, including a few with over 20 million
subscribers, praised the company after it released its latest
update on tools to fight copyright infringement. 

Before the update, creators couldn’t tell which specific part of
a video was flagged for having potentially copyrighted material.
That meant these creators had to search through the video to find
where it violated YouTube’s policy. With this update, time stamps
will pinpoint what section of the video creators should change,
which they can then edit directly on YouTube. These changes were
outlined in a company blog post on July
9.

Here are a few of the notable names that commented on
the change:

Philip DeFranco, known for his channel The Philip DeFranco Show
with 6 million subscribers on YouTube, tweeted, “Oh woah! A
genuinely good change, if it works as explained.”

issues! I love you”
