Lets say your an engineer making cars for rolls royce. You come up with an idea for a new car, that new car OBVIOUSLY belongs to rolls royce not you you fool. So you quit rolls royce. It is quite obvious you will not be able to make that same car and sell it under your name now. WHATS THE SURPRISE HERE GUYS?

It's a company. And a bad one at that the entertainment sucks. People glamorize it but at the end of the day it's still a company. And what's the point of being with a company that doesn't have stability they own your content, limit your creative freedom, and there is deadlines. Why do all that with no long-term assurance. They take a bug chunk of being creative out of being a creator. It's a job but why be a creator when it's limited? Creators normally don't get paid much so you might as well be doing something else if that's the case if it's gonna be controlled. I get buzzfeed owning the content you and others make because that's what companies do. They provide you materials and all that. I just wouldn't be a YouTuber if it became like a job. That's not the goal of pursuing a art path. It's suppose to be fun! I never thought any buzzfeed content was good. I trust none of it. It use to be cheap dumb entertainment that's clickbait. Now it's dumb liberal stuff. I think even if I was liberal I'd think it was stupid.

WHAT???? You mean to tell us that the company that employed you to make content specifically for them, owns the content you made for them???? OUTRAGEOUS!!!!! How dare they take ownership of what they have paid you to make for them. I feel so sorry for you, having a job is so tough.

If you don't want the company you WORK FOR to own the content you make FOR THEM, then yeah don't work for anyone and be your own boss. It's not weird or shady at all for Buzzfeed to own the content because after all, that's what they're paying you to do lol. I don't get why that seems like a weird thing to you two.

Okay when you work for a company and they're paying you to make content for them. It's their content, that's why they're paying you to work for them.

This isn't unique to buzzfeed. It's part of the real world and being in a real company.

If you have a really special idea that you want as yours, simply don't share it with the company. Hold onto it until you're on your own or end up with a higher position.

A more interesting question, breadheads, would be 'why did you JOIN Buzzfeed?'

Tessa SteinleTessa Steinle (18 days ago)
Hmm... it's weird that buzzfeed doesn't let you have your own YouTube channel doing the exact same thing that you do on their channel. It's also weird that they own the videos that you're in on their channel. OH WAIT. ITS FUCKING NOT. THATS HOW JOBS WORK. I'd be surprised if you ever got another job in media. They are all the same. Dumbasses

Lasse BauerLasse Bauer (18 days ago)
WTF is wrong with this whiny, entitled, hyper-sensitive and overprotected generation??
"When you work for a company and make videos, everything you make that company owns". No shit, Sherlock.
Of course you can´t get PAID to develop creative ideas for a company, and then expect to also TAKE the ideas with you when you leave. The same way an architect can´t design a house for someone, get paid - and then claim ownership of the house afterwards. WTF??
The genius on the right wonders: "do I give them my best ideas? Later in life I might wanna use those ideas for something.."
Here´s the answer: If you´re NOT giving them your best ideas, you´re in the wrong job AND you´re definitely getting overpaid.
Unless you have an agreement to bring your second best ideas, you naturally bring your A game.
It´s like saying "Oh, do I strike this match? Maybe we will run out of fire..."
There isn´t a fixed amount of ideas out there, and if you´re afraid of running out of ideas "for later in life", you probably shouldn´t be in any creative position.
Leaving a corporation to do your own thing makes perfect sense for a lot of people. More power to you and them.
But whining about not being able to BOTH get paid AND take the fruits of your PAID work with you is so entitled (or possibly uneducated or naive), I don´t even know how to rate it.

27And that’s because that is Buzzfeed’s intellectual property.
2:31And that began to scare me, where I was like, well, do I give them my best ideas?
I'm curious about what you believe to be 'owned' by you and your IP if you paid regular, professionals to work for you. It's not unusual for your work, ideas and effort to 'belong' to the company that employed you to deliver those things. That's why it's called Intellectual 'property'.

Why WE Left BuzzFeed:

WE left because as a women, WE have a Biological clocks and We will soon need men. So WE need to cool off the Misandry a bit. WE'RE also starting to realize that feminism (The Racist/Maxist/Facist Divisive Movement) lied to US and not all men are pieces of shit garbage that want to assualt me. Instead, WE realized that women hate and envy US more than any man ever could've. And they have used their gynocentric nature of world domination to control US and OUR Non-Agency having ways. Going forward WE hope to correct OUR mistakes and speak out wherever necessary in order to take back womanhood, from all the Nasty Whores that have Hijacked it. Lastly, Coke & Pepsi is the same thing :)
