Request that ShoPro NOT Terminate the “Artzie Music” Youtube Channel
The beloved “Artzie Music” Youtube channel is being terminated on the basis that it is using copyrighted imagery from content owned by ShoPro. However, the channel holds a beloved fanbase, and the content, while copyrighted, serves only to generate increased interest in the content owned by ShoPro.
Ultimately, the content used by the “Artzie Music” Youtube channel, while copyrighted, does NOT serve as a replacement for the anime owned by ShoPro, as the content in the Youtube channel consists mostly of short repeating snippets (1-2 seconds of length), as opposed to full episode streams. And therefore, the content in the Youtube channel does not, in any way, steal public viewership from the content by ShoPro. On the contrary, the “Artzie Music” Youtube channel has contributed to a resurgence in interest in the anime owned by ShoPro, ultimately leading to an increased demand for both old and new content from ShoPro.
Therefore, it would be in the best interest of ShoPro to grant the “Artzie Music” Youtube channel permission to remain on Youtube, as its presence generates a resurgence in public interest in the works owned by ShoPro.
The “Artzie Music” Youtube channel is a significant medium through which ShoPro gains free exposure, and a growing niche fanbase for the works that it owns. Removing the channel would ultimately be a financial loss for ShoPro, and a loss for the people who enjoy the content in the “Artzie Music” Youtube channel.
