The Fine Bros Backlash and the Problem with Licensing Video Content

by Andy Smith

REACT AROUND THE WORLD?!?! (Special Announcement)

Join React World: http://www.finebrosent.com/join Check out the React World Blog Post: https://medium.com/@FineBrothersEnt/1e6c0b708ab9 REACT Community Unite! REACT WORLD is a new and innovative way to license formats around the globe with no upfront cost, and our goal is to cultivate a worldwide community of creators (media companies, other production companies, and individuals) on digital media platforms around the REACT franchise. Since creating React in 2011, we’ve aimed for our productions to be a time capsule for future generations to look back on to understand what their parents, grandparents, or ancestors were thinking and doing during this incredible time, and by opening up the various React formats to you all around the world, we hope to grease the wheels for us to understand the world better now, to shine a light on topics and issues both large and small, and learn and appreciate one another more. We believe that together, we can build something larger than any of us can do on our own, and help change the world through reaction, opinion, and conversation. NOTE: React World allows you to license some of FBE's most popular series (the specific elements and structure of each show). With that comes a suite of support that you can read about at the website. We do not hold a copyright on reaction videos overall. No one can. React World is about licensing FBE's show formats, not just for shows like Kids React, but also others like "Do They Know It?," "Lyric Breakdown," and more. This is similar to TV where you can't make a show substantially similar to "America's Got Talent," but of course you can make a completely different talent competition series. Same deal here. We do not own the idea of reaction videos nor would we shut down anyone making reaction based content. Of course you can make your own react videos, but React World is an opportunity to localize versions of our specific series. This is also a way to create a community on YouTube of like minded producers and fans who want to work together, and benefit from the guidance and resources that we can provide around the specific FBE shows that we are making available through the React World program.
