    Cringeworthy. And it feels scripted to the bone with bad acting. Good to see the beginning of the collapse of social justice ideology though, it'll finally contradict with the platforms it's using to get their voice be heard. Youtube will be next, they'll wonder why they don't get all the ad revenue because they're entitled, right?
    Right. Wait and see.

    "The thing about jobs is that you can leave them" ok Allison and the thing about everything else is..because you can leave them also, what an intelligent statement. You can also leave your committed relationship because y'know it's just a relationship and you can always just leave them. Just keep leaving your jobs and lose money lol. "You can make videos and Buzzfeed still owns them".. yes dumb bitches because you work for them, it's THEIR BRAND. Barista at Starbucks here, I made another Frappucino BUT BOO HOO Starbucks want me to sell them drinks so we can both get a pay check but I'm mad because Starbucks owns their own franchise, like it's not a 50/50 deal where both benefit.

    Ok can this stupid trend of complaining about Buzzfeed end already? All of you guys who are quitting say the most repetitive shit and just sound like whiny, ungrateful lazy workers. "They don't let us do our own content and material outside of Buzzfeed" yeah because the place that hires you is so gonna let you do the same thing they're doing but just on your own time, and still pay you right? That doesn't sound greedy at all?? You're hired by them, you work under them, you can bring new things to the plate to your job, not do the same thing outside of it. They paid you to be ungrateful basically..just so you guys can get a your million subscribers, bet you want your own t-shirt next. ALL OF YOU GUYS WHO QUIT ARE VERY PRETENTIOUS...and greedy. Yeah a company you work for is totally gonna want to make shirt with your name on them and not their brand lol what job is fucking like that? Get over yourselves seriously, so whack.

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.

    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.

    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

    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'.
