HornPost Media Launches DUNGOO In An Effort to Help Artists From East Africa Protect Their Work
DUNGOO is a video content delivery platform that helps artists protect their work on the internet
Protecting an artwork has always been a tough business, whether it's through a bootleg recording from a theatre or a free streaming from amateur websites, countless copyright laws never fully protected an artwork. Sometimes, YouTube users take it up on themselves to share music videos created by someone else, and mini-streaming websites keep posting stolen contents. The latter group posts a cribbed paragraph on its websites as a cover—telling content owners to contact if copyrights were violated—not meant to respect copyrights–just a way of saying if it's yours take it, don't sue us. They are counting on copyright owners not discovering their site or ignore it to avoid the legal hassle.
Artists from East Africa have given up on their rights to their work, or do not know how to fight, not only failing to protect their music and/or videos but also lost revenues from advertisements.
DUNGOO plans to go after copyright violators on behalf of the artists and/or the record labels who agree to work with it. "We will hire lawyers on content owners' behalf if necessary," said Tolessa Gurmessa, founder of DUNGOO, "but we would go with YouTube's Content ID Claim and DMCA takedown notice first," he added.
