Freebooting... Today I want to cover a topic that is very dear to me. I see this all time online and it scares me because I know it very well may affect me one day, and there is nothing I can do about it currently. It's freebooting.

Freebooting is the act of downloading a form of media that someone else made and uploading it as their own. I want to give a shout out to Hello Internet and Smarter Every Day for already spreading the message and increasing awareness. If you haven't already watched their videos, I encourage you to do so. You can find them here:

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this or if you have some insight that I, or the YouTube community, may be missing. Please leave a comment below because I’d love to learn as much about this as possible, and it could only benefit us as a community to become educated.

Thanks for watching guys. I appreciate it.
