In an attempt to combat copyright-related issues on YouTube, creators have started adding self-sung songs behind funny clips they wish to shoot a reaction video on.

Reaction videos, typically monetised, are a huge part of the current YouTube culture where people lift clips and trailers and film their reactions to what is happening on-screen.

Creators have devised the humorous method so that major labels would not be able to claim copyright infringement, or at least that the singing would not trigger YouTube's automated system for finding copyrighted content.

 However, the issue remains that YouTube content creators are still trying out ways to monetise videos that include content they did not create themselves.

"It's a little painful to hear, but ultimately a very fun loophole in the copyright system that YouTube has to enforce," the report added.

There has not been any comment on the subject from Google or YouTube as of now.
