Copyright Abuse: How to Stop Thieves in Their Tracks

Nearly $1 Billion dollars was seized by 3rd parties from 'Fan-made' videos in 2015 according to Google. This was done by using YouTube's Content ID system which allows companies to claim copyright ownership of content is a video and begin collecting its advertising revenue. Some of this money was collected from videos that did not actually contain anything owned by the claimant. Some money was collected from videos that many people consider to be fair use. Chad Wild Clay, a content creator who has received over 120 copyright claims, will step-by-step disclose how he's successfully defeated 100% of these claims against his videos and prevented his YouTube monetization from being collected by third parties.

Planning Virality: The Science Behind 1 Billion Views and Millions of Shares

Once your video is made, how do you get the masses to not only see it but also share it? What principles should be followed in the beginning when planning your next BIG video campaign? Bryce will discuss how to make your content as shareable as possible and how to get it seen & written about in places that matter most.

When he's not building content for brands, Bryce and his wife, Nellie, enjoy going on adventures and vlogging about it for their recently-launched YouTube channel, "The Jurgys".

Warren Workman




“I would compare VidSummit to VidCon Industry Day But on Steroids !!!”

Vy Qwaint


"I had no idea how much I was missing. There are so many things out there that I can be doing to market my videos better. Small things that make a huge impact."

Ashley Prisbey

“I went to film school and learned how to make pretty pictures and tell engaging stories, but what I’ve been missing is the ability to reach and connect with an audience through the online medium, and now I have things I can actually take away and apply immediately.”

Austin Wilson
