Does Reddit Support Freebooting?
Reddit, the internet aggregate that takes no guff from outsiders, might actually be changing its tune after a video on freebooting was linked on the popular platform.
Corridor Digital’s Sam and Niko released the video above, which was quickly linked on the subreddit /r/videos. It quickly rose to the top of the list, and surprisingly so did other content pertaining to it. Another video of a YouTube creator known as Dinosaur Kid also gained a lot of attention. In it, the child pleads with viewers about 2 other users stealing his content and uploading it as their own.
On top of that, a reposted video was quickly tagged with “Original in Comments,” so the original creators would get credit where credit is due.
It’s great to see Reddit embracing what Sam and Niko have warned them about. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of the end for freebooting on the site!
