Dilu: 第一个女孩儿,她在说:美剧视频。

John: 美剧视频。So what kind of video is that?

Dilu: 就是美国的。'剧'可能是'电视剧'。((也?))可能是'电影'。

John: So you just said 电视剧. So that's like 'TV drama', like a TV series.

Dilu: 是的。

John: And when we say 美剧, 3rd tone - 4th tone, that means 'an American TV series'.

Dilu: 对。以前是难看的,现在不能看了。那为什么呢?是因为版权的问题。

John: 版权问题。What are the tones on 版权?

Dilu: 第三声和第二声。版权。版权问题。

John: 3rd-2nd. 权 refers to 'rights'. And 版权 refers to 'copyrights".

Dilu: 是的。

John: So 'copyright issues' ((in a DRM???)) - that kind of thing.

John: So 放, 4th tone, that can mean a lot of things. Don't you use that to play a video? But they're not talking about 'playing' videos, right?

Dilu: 这边指的是把这个video放在网上。

John: Put the video online. Put these videos on their websites.

Dilu: 对。或者是upload。也可以。

John: So if I understand this correctly, the websites are no longer willing to put videos on their sites because of copyright issues.

Dilu: 对。

John: So 1st tone, 4th tone.

Dilu: 你也用过优酷吧John?

John: 用过。

Dilu: 那现在呢?

Dilu: 那他们变化的原因呢是优酷上市了。
