Fantastic Student Music Video to I Gotta Feeling! Gotta Be Banned?

,----[ Quote ]
| This is a classic case of the problems with copyright 
| laws, especially as it pertains to music.  Below is a 
| completely entertaining student film feature over 100 
| performers doing a one-take lip-dub to the Black-Eyed 
| Peas' song "I Gotta Feeling." 


Dutch Collection Society Looks To Charge Bloggers For Embedding YouTube Videos

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the past year, we've noticed an explosion in 
| ridiculous attempts by music collection societies (often 
| totally clueless about technology) to extend their 
| ability to collect for positively ridiculous things 
| (while also looking to significantly increase their 
| collection rates). The latest, sent in by Dennis Laumen, 
| is that the Dutch collection society, Buma/Stemra, is 
| claiming that it's going to start charging bloggers 130 
| euros for every 6 videos they embed. This is, of course, 
| technologically clueless. The embedding of a video 
| doesn't change the fact that it's actually playing from 
| and hosted at the original site (such as YouTube). All 
| embedding does is allow the video to appear via the other 
| page, even though, technically, it's all still happening 
| at its original location. Claiming that this is somehow a 
| "new" publication of the content is technologically 
| incorrect.



Viacom thinks it has found a smoking gun

| Viacom is suing Youtube for a billion dollars and claims to
| have uncovered emails that allegedly proved employees of the
| video website were among those who uploaded unauthorised
| content.
