Dailymotion removes copyrighted material

Posted on Wednesday, November 22 2006 @ 18:05:45 CET by

The growth of Dailymotion, a French YouTube competitor, may slown down a bit now that they've removed a bunch of copyrighted material from their website.

A bit more than a week ago Business Week published a story about this French video-sharing site and said Dailymotion looks poised to grab a piece of the European online audience.

In Europe Dailymotion has a reach of about 2%, and YouTube has around 10% to 12% reach. Dailymotion still has many chances to grow like their deal with leading French TV station TF1 but I believe their growth may slow down a bit as they continue to remove copyrighted videos from their website.

One of the things that made Dailymotion a hit on forums and international social networking sites like Digg was a piece of news that you could view almost every episode of hot shows like The Simpsons, South Park and Family Guy on this video site. Well, check again today and see how many of these episodes are still available. Check out this link for instance, which used to be s18e04 of The Simpsons. Now the page is showing a "This content have been censored" message.

Some shows are still available but I guess it's only a matter of time. Some episodes like the World of Warcraft episode of South Park had hundred thousands of views and these are now all gone.
