Youtube is a bad choice for uploaders

Ok, you've heard it. With Youtube taking down the videos of Justine one by one, from RG now to Wimbledon, good job to the copyright thing. I've seen plenty of the matches still on youtube but yet they had chosen to target me when I'm almost inactive. I've spent hours to upload her matches to share with fellow Ju fans and now all these have gone to waste.

Sorry peeps, you'll have to source for Ju's artistic matches elsewhere. Meanwhile, I'm not even sure if I got the time and commitment to re-upload her videos to other platforms. Seriously Roland Garros and Wimbledon officials, you all have disgusted me with your greed to claim every rights to the RG and Wimbledon videos of Justine that I've uploaded. I don't see how they would benefit you from doing so (selling these old vids?) except to kill the value of entertainment and the joy of sharing. Plus these videos are already many years old, yeah, sure still trying ways to milk money out of them eh?

Copyright = $$$, I get that.

Sorry Justine, as much as I wanted to spread your artistic tennis to the world, there will always be imbeciles finding ways to thwart it.

That's all for my rant, super pissed off!


  1. From the backhand to the way she expressed emotion on the court, there is no other player exactly like Justine, and there never will be!

    Aww, that sucks, I need to watch Ju's memorable matches! There are so many I haven't seen, it's shameful. Copyright's always been a touchy subject but it would be nice if the owners approved of some legitimate way for us to watch their footage. A tennis match videos website would be good if there are any, maybe there are some out there you can join and upload your videos to? YouTube itself is turning into crap, stupid Google! I miss the old channels and way things were done - they were much simpler.

    On the flipside though, I'm looking forward to Wimbledon this year especially with Justine on BBC radio. England's time zone suits Australia pretty well, too :)

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Sorry for the very late reply...I've already gotten 2 strikes for my Youtube channel, if I got one more strike, that channel is gone forever, so I couldn't risk doing anything. And I've been super busy lately, I haven't got any time to check out other videos platform where I could reupload them again.

    I still follow Ju's news from the facebook group though I haven't got to update them on this dying blog. I probably will be free months after, maybe next year...oops!
