The Fine Bro’s Attempt to Monopolize Reactions

As some of you may have heard in the last few days the Fine Bros YouTube channel attempted to form a monopoly on reaction YouTube video’s. The Fine Bros are a YouTube channel that specializes in YouTube reaction videos. They have been very popular on the internet. Earlier this week they announced there new network “React World.” This is a network where basically people make reaction videos and pay them a share of the profits. This would normally just be a bad idea, but then they started taking down other peoples reaction videos. Continue reading “The Fine Bro’s Attempt to Monopolize Reactions”

Sony is trying to trademark the term “Let’s Play”

Earlier today I saw this story that I thought was absolutely insane. Sony is apparently trying to trademark the term “Let’s Play”. At first I didn’t believed so I checked other sources and sure enough it was true. For those of you who don’t know a Let’s Play is basically a video of someone playing a video game, usually with commentary. Some of these videos get millions of views each. I have two idea’s why they would want to do, the first is that they wan’t to use it as a slogan. Maybe there going to have an ad campaign shoving “PlayStation: Let’s Play” or something like that down our throats.

Screen Junkies Plus – Could it kill YouTube

 

Everyone knows YouTube, even people who are allergic to the internet have heard of YouTube. Most likely everyone reading this has used it at least once. Earlier today I saw something that I knew I needed to write a story on. Recently the Screen Junkies channel launched there subscription service Screen Junkies Plus. This is a $4.99 USD a month subscription which allows you to watch extra content. Now this has gotten mostly positive responses so far. But when I saw this and I had totally a different response. First things first the price is ridiculous Netflix which has professional exclusives and thousands of hours of content costs $9.99 USD a month. Screen Junkies Plus  probably has about 12 hours of content (I don’t have the subscription I don’t know the exact number), but the price isn’t the worst part of this. What I’m scared of is what if this succeeds. If this is successful more Youtubers will switch from the traditional ad based formula they have Continue reading “Screen Junkies Plus – Could it kill YouTube”
