The University staff has lately announced the closing of a new collaboration with Clicker, targeted at discouraging youth from entrusting torrent sites for getting access to things like online TV.
The Los Angeles University’s faculty decided to follow the example of their colleges across the United States, hoping that after suggesting students the option of using a programming online TV content guide (which is Clicker itself), they’ll be able to considerably decrease the illegal file-sharing.
Besides offering services like online TV in the campus, the collaboration with Clicker is also intended to have a positive influence on the education of students, providing them with comfortable access to top-quality educational content.
Launched just a couple months ago in 2009, November, Clicker positions itself as the perfect guide to Internet Television providing its users with access to a huge database of content – mostly online video, including over four hundred thousand episodes from about seven thousand various United State’s TV shows. The service contains TV shows from different cable and broadcast networks in the United States, alongside with Web originals. The point is that though Clicker doesn't locate any video on the site, but indexes a great number of videos hosted on sites like YouTube and Hulu. Thus it suffers from the limitations imposed on the online partners by networks and studios, but the obvious benefit of Clicker is that its user may rely on top-quality streams and working and accurate links.
The Clicker’s partnership with University of California at Los Angeles was greatly appreciated by MPAA (the Motion Picture Association of America) that never hesitated to compliment the University’s efforts in the media. Chief content protection officer and general counsel of Association Daniel Mandil expressed his delight publicly towards University of California and Clicker for bringing up the culture of the campus that respects creativity and supports the livings of the millions of moviemakers.
Staff of University of California at Los Angeles is now quite positive about students showing the same enthusiasm to the partnership and turning away from using torrent sites as Clicker allows them to indicate if some video is not available legally, helping to define the boundary between good and bad.
