This morning,I happened to read a bad news,that Video streaming websites like youku in China, have been ordered to stop showing four popular American TV shows, including The Big Bang Theory and The Good Wife.and a Chinese slapstick miniseries made by souhu was also ordered to remove......
I love The Big Bang Theory,so I am not happy now and can't do anyting to solve this problem.feel helpless.......
U really konw about Youku?U are just telling a joke that Youku Does not pay any royalties to using video materials! Didn't u see the purchase botton on the web site of Youku???
The problem is ,even if we payed for intellectual rights，some TV shows will not be permitted in China.They are forbidden ,ok?
I don't want to argue with you,for English is not my mother toungue. but at least I think u should be polite to others!
Youku is a pirate web site. Does not pay any royalties to using video materials...Gets it like stealing. and the people who watch them for free ( with many advertisements inside ) contribute to its piracy as well. Pay for intellectual rights.
The interest thing is that <24 hours> comes back and it will be opened to Chinese viewers on YOUKU few days later.
No one wants to give up such a huge market of China. I think it will go nowhere finally.
the government forbids some kinds of shows like violence, politic... and another reason is to protect local series.
oh, my favourite Sheldor! Perhaps I should buy a new hard disk!
