Bad News for Video Curation Startups: Magnify Gets Patent and Permission To Sue Video Curation Services

Bad News for Video Curation Startups: Magnify Gets Patent and Permission To Sue Video Curation Services | Visual Storytelling | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Nonetheless Magnify.net founder Steven Rosenbaum states "“I believe in the freedom of innovation", his company has just been awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,117,545 covering hosted video discovery and publishing platforms.

 

The patent description clearly covers any web-based service which allows you to create a topic-specific channel with manually or auto-curated video content.

 

Here the exact wording: "A hosted system provides any Internet user with the ability to quickly set up and customize a video channel, preferably as a web page or site that can be reached from any Internet-accessible device having a web browser.

 

The solution includes tools for use by channel site creators to customize the look, feel, and page design.

 

A particular web page or site may be associated with a given subject.

 

As used herein, a page or site that has such an association is sometimes referred to as “subject-specific...” 

 

I don't know what's your take on this, but I personally don't see this as good news for curation and video curation startups, who are presently innovating in this space (like Blinkx, Redux, Chill, Vodpod, Magma, Yokto, Shufflr, Griddeo, Shortform, Mixd.tv, Embedr, Plizy, Vidcaster, Yubby, and many others).

 

Patents, whether in the hands of large or small players are the antithesis of open innovation and it is for me difficult to support who in the name of a better future, choses to utilize the means of his worst enemies to achieve its business ends. 

 

While Magnify.net investors may indeed pretty happy about this, I am not.

 

Worrysome. 4/10 (Pass this news on)

Brandon Hoe's curator insight, April 5, 2013 12:29 PM

We live in an era of business that's increasingly becoming cold, calculated and logical. Big data, virtual teams, digitized information, .... these are business trends that move us away from personal, human connections. However, humans are still very much at the core of all business transactions and we respond best to things that appeal to our emotions. 

In this article, Michael S. Malone, an instructor of professional writing at Santa Clara University, tells the story of his experience with his students and how he teaches them the practical side of storytelling in preparation for the jobs that they'll ultimately end up in. He also shares the story of how he used storytelling to help launch and advance his startup venture. 

What I found compelling about this article is the bold assertion that Malone makes about storytellers. He says, "Indeed, I’m increasingly convinced that a great storyteller is even more important to an institution than a great code-writer, an accomplished research scientist, and maybe even a talented CEO. That's true in the early days of a modern enterprise, when a company is trying to convince employees, investors, and partners to believe in a product or service that doesn’t yet exist. It's also true in later years, when a mature company needs a compelling story to maintain the loyalty of customers and employees, and to differentiate itself from competitors."

How to Be an Educated Consumer of Infographics: David Byrne on the Art-Science of Visual Storytelling

How to Be an Educated Consumer of Infographics: David Byrne on the Art-Science of Visual Storytelling | Visual Storytelling | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova

 

"As an appreciator of the art of visual storytelling by way of good information graphics – an art especially endangered in this golden age of bad infographics served as linkbait – I was thrilled and honored to be on the advisory “Brain Trust” for a project by Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist, New Yorkerwriter, and Scientific American neuroscience blog editor Gareth Cook, who has set out to highlight the very best infographics produced each year, online and off. (Disclaimer for the naturally cynical: No money changed hands.)The Best American Infographics 2013(public library) is now out, featuring the finest examples from the past year – spanning everything from happiness to sports to space to gender politics, and including a contribution by friend-of-Brain Pickings Wendy MacNaughton – with an introduction by none other than David Byrne. Accompanying each image is an artist statement that explores the data, the choice of visual representation, and why it works."

When it comes to marketing strategy, videos are powerful. How powerful? On Facebook, for example, videos are shared 12 times more than non-video posts. And let’s not forget YouTube, the second largest search engine in the world (after Google, of course). The ability of videos to increase user engagement is unsurpassed.

 

According to YouTube’s statistics page, they get over 800 million unique visitors each month, users view more than 4 billion hours of video each month and upload 72 hours of video every minute. That’s a lot of potential for your video....
