LETTER TO
Mark Zuckerberg

Dave Wehner

<div class="ellipsis hide-overflow" data-_block="“Freebooting” is the practice of downloading copyrighted content from a media-hosting website and re-uploading it without the creator’s permission, typically in order to accumulate a large following or for commercial profit through advertising revenue.

Facebook, Inc. hosts an enormous amount of freebooted content because it has no content ID system nor protection for independent creators. Being a multi-billion dollar company, Facebook, Inc. should be able to get away with this.

We are calling on Facebook, Inc. to implement a Content ID System like YouTube in order to protect independent creators from copyright infringement.” data-ellipsis=”” data-height=”100″ data-read_more=”
