Jewish YouTubers Trademark the Word 'React'
The Fine Bros Slammed for Trying to Trademark the Word ‘REACT’
(yes, the brothers grew up in an Orthodox Jewish home in Brooklyn)

LOLOLOL They took this kid's video down due to copyright claims.

He reuploaded to show that it was HIS reaction. They are filing copyright claims once again. His anger is justified, yet entertaining.




http://superfame.com/post/fine-brothers-...trademark/ Wrote:The Fine Brothers, best known for their “React” videos, are currently entangled in one of their biggest controversies ever.

Update: A lawyer wants to help creators oppose The Fine Bros’ trademark for free.

Fans are accusing the brothers of “pulling a Taylor Swift”, by trying to wield copyright and trademark law to control anybody who wants to make a “React” video.

They were even called out in a hugely popular Reddit post, and branded “hypocritical, greedy, money-grabbers”.

Exposed: The Fine Bros Are Trying to Trademark the Word “React”

Although The Fine Bros claimed that they weren’t trying to claim every type of “React” video ever – their trademark applications tell a different story.

A while ago, The Fine Bros filed an application to trademark the word “React”. The trademark has not been approved yet, but fans are already questioning their intentions.

The classification they chose was broad and generic, and could potentially cover all online videos.

If anything VH1 created the format with their horrible clip shows in the '90s.

RE: JewTubers Trademark the Word 'React'
what's stopping people from trademarking common phrases if they let them get away with this?

can you trademark "watch this video"

"VIRAL VID"

blah blah blah.

I can see them trademarking the brand REACT.. for their react/reaction videos.. but they are taking down videos that simply say "kids react to blah blah blah"

Quote:If you want to make a YouTube video of someone reacting to something, you’ll have to go through the Fine Bros. Variety reports that Rafi and Benny Fine, who’ve built a YouTube empire on interviewing kids, teens, and old folks about various pop-cultural phenomena, have set up a new venture called React World. It aims to aggregate and monetize every “react” video on YouTube — as in, "Someone Reacts to Something" — with the Fines handling licensing and taking a cut of the profit. And other prominent YouTubers are pissed.

Here’s how React World will operate, according to Variety and the Fines’ enthusiastic announcement video: Any non-Fine-affiliated channel that wants to make “react”-style videos will be able to get a license from the Fines, which comes with a brand bible ensuring the videos meet the brothers’ specifications. The Fine Bros. will push all the videos through their React World channel, exposing them to a large, preexisting audience, and take a cut of the revenue in return.


This also applies to a bunch of other Fine Bros. video templates, including “Do They Know It,” “People Vs Food,” “Lyric Breakdown,” “Try Not to Smile or Laugh,” “Opinions,” and “People Vs Technology.” And the Fines have acquired the trademarks to go with them: Yes, they trademarked “React” and “Opinions” for the YouTube video market.

This did not sit well with the hosts of popular YouTube video-game comedy channel Mega64, who see the Fines consolidation of their brand as an insincere cash-grab that will stop other channels from using what seem like pretty broad and generic video formats. And on top of that, they fear the Fines will try to … er, fine, anyone whose videos come too close to the territory they’ve staked out.

Here’s their parody of the Fine Bros. announcement, in which they mockingly announce that they’ve copyrighted “Videos Filmed Outside” and “YouTube Videos.”

They are just like the feminists. They don't know when they have a good thing going, they just keep pushing the envelope because they are greedy. It's a good thing the internet sees through the crap, and understands how to use satire. Hopefully it will blowup in their faces, and they will be ridiculed into oblivion.

RE: JewTubers Trademark the Word 'React'
they are saying you can make your own reaction videos.. however what they do not say is you can't use certain phrases that they trademarked.

trademarking your youtube channel as react is fine. you can't trademark the word or common phrases.

Apple patented a rounded rectangle, and won a billion dollars settlement from Samsung. Taylor Swift trademarked the phrases "This Sick Beat" & "Party Like It's 1989". There is no end to the insanity which is our legal system.

Here's an excellent documentary which explains how intellectual property hinders creativity & innovation.

RE: Jewish YouTubers Trademark the Word 'React'
the entire legal system needs to be overhauled

the entire legal system is a form of legalized extortion /robbery

those with more money can afford better lawyers and use the threat of them to make people comply to ridiculous demands

there needs to be huge finds for filing frivolous lawsuits. the problem is the judges are corrupt.

this is why I think judges , lawyers etc. need MORAL TRAINING.
