Hello,
given your recent series of blogposts about IP abuses, what do you think about Tom Scott's video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Jwo5qc78QU) about YouTube's copyright system and how it became to what it is now?

I watched it when it came out and I remember thinking it was good. I agree with his general thesis that YouTube is contorting around a copyright system not designed for the internet, and a lot of the problems with YouTube's system coming from the fact that it's a "layer" between the individual and the law. I think my response would be that a copyright system more like the one I describe in https://blog.giovanh.com/blog/2023/10/25/youve-never-seen-copyright/ would fit "The Internet" better, as a side-effect of fitting the whole world better in general.
