Sad YouTube Economics, Trademarking "React", and Rip Off Artists

I don't typically pay much attention to the current events of a platform like YouTube, but this week's controversy with The Fine Brothers trademarking 'react' videos made me want to share my thoughts on some recent trends and conversations happening about YouTube.

In this episode I talk through the sad economics of being famous on the Internet, why you shouldn't try to trademark recording a basic human action, how the world of online publishing is getting harder, and how not to be a rip off artist.
