"How do I draw a circle? I CAN'T DRAW A CIRCLE WITH IT YET AFTER LIKE 30 YEARS" --lowuserid1997
I see this one asked all the time. First draw your circle in the ellipse selection tool. To make it a perfect circle, just hold shift while selecting, or check the "Fixed" (aspect ratio) option box in the toolbox.
- For a hollow circle, go to Edit --> Stroke Selection. Then pick your line width, color, etc.
- For a solid circle, go to Edit --> Fill with BG Color, Fill with FG Color, or Fill with Pattern, depending on what you're trying to do.
Also works with paths (vectors), text, rectangles (with rounded corners), and arbitrary freehand/contiguous/cut-out selections.
Of course I'm also sure that none of this has anything to do with the fact that YouTube gets a cut of those ad proceeds. And that a small user posting original content would probably opt not to insert ads, such that YouTube would be then getting a cut of zero.
That shouldn't matter. YouTube gets a cut of the ad revenue no matter who gets the other cut. It's just whether you make the extra profit or Rabblefish.
I'm also willing to venture that after going through the figleaf of a process of he-said, she-said, he-said, that there is little recourse. My guess is that any future attempt by a little guy to appeal/refute/re-dispute a big copyright holders' refutation of the original dispute will fall down some big black rabbit hole of non-responsiveness from YouTube corporate bureaucracy, complete with lack of any personal points of contact for trying to actually resolve this.
I'm not a lawyer but my understanding of the DMCA was that if you dispute it, the company has to either sue you or let it slide. It's not just a you-say-it's-yours they-say-you're-wrong thing; they make an authoritative claim to own the content in question (stating formerly that they did their research), and you dispute it and refuse to comply with the takedown. At this point, liability for infringement is passed from the service provider to you, as you force their hand; if they want DMCA action, they have to take you to court.
From the summary here, I can't quite understand what the OP did or whether he did just that, or any of the other specific details, but I would expect YouTube to remove the ads once the company backed out of filing a lawsuit. Of course the company(ies) in question will keep doing it because there is a financial (and political) incentive and very little risk of any kind of repercussions, but that's how corporate legal departments operate and you just have to keep fighting back when they try to bully you.
I said phone, not cell phone or smart phone. You know, those ancient analog devices mounted on the wall from the day and age mentioned in GP, before cell phones were widespread. You speak into them, and they don't connect to the internet or remember your recent contacts. We are still talking about
decades ago when employees got home telephones and occasionally talked business on them
right? Maybe I'm naive, but I don't seem to remember Outlook from a phone being possible back then.
Point being, in the time when this figured out, you didn't have to worry about what kind of sensitive data was stored on a device with no storage capability.

I know I'm late to the discussion, but I thought I'd throw this in for thought.
As long as we're not talking about censorship, I really think this
Yes, I realize Goatse and the like will continue exist, but that's an obvious exception for obvious reasons.
