CrazyRussianHacker, Plagiarist and DMCA abuser! #WTFU
.youtube.com/results?search_query=fair+use // .youtube.com/results?search_query=DMCA // So when I first made a video showing that CrazyRussianHackers idea about using dry ice for an air conditioner was basically suicidal, I really didnt think anything would come of it. Then recently he filed a DMCA takedown of my video. This resulted in a strike against my account and me losing access to certain features.

Now thats a special brand of idiot who makes a video about a suicidal way to chill the air, then files a baseless copyright takedown of the only warning about how dumb that idea is. Especially against a guy like me who has a history of fighting DMCA abuse! [ people have yet to be sued in court for DMCA abuse, it is a felony ]

Fine Brothers spark fury with YouTube trademark attempt - BBC News
[ protecting an entertainment format - old school TV. YT goes TV. ] 2015 applied to trademark terms "Kids React", "Adults React" & "Celebrities React", as well as the word "react" itself, which could be used to form new variations of the format. [...] a licensing scheme called React World, which they said would let other video-makers use the "react" title and assets such as their graphics and music. But the plan was negatively received by the YouTube community because so many people already make similar reaction-based videos online, using the word "react" in the title. "They had a bunch of trademarks already and nobody minded," said Jon, a YouTuber from Many A True Nerd. "But the moment they got to just the word 'react', it was just too commonly used. "People aren't sure whether they will fall foul of the trademark. "As creators, we have sympathy that you want to protect your content from being stolen - but in this case it's too far," he told the BBC. & bit.ly/1JWHDXd backing-off

Quentin Tarantino faces $100m copyright claim over Django Unchained | Film | The Guardian
Two scriptwriters have launched legal action against Quentin Tarantino, alleging that his 2012 film Django Unchained infringes the copyright of their screenplay Freedom, according to The Wrap. In the suit, Tarantino – along with the Weinstein Company and Columbia Pictures, which produced and distributed the film – Oscar Colvin Jr and Torrance J Colvin call Tarantino “an admitted thief”, quoting him as saying “I steal from every single movie ever made.” They say they submitted their screenplay to the William Morris Agency, which discussed Tarantino as a possible collaborator, and that the overlap of ideas and characters from their script goes beyond coincidence.

Bundesverfassungsgericht: Moses Pelham gegen Kraftwerk - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Dürfen Musiker kurze Fetzen aus fremden Liedern übernehmen, ohne um Erlaubnis zu fragen? Darum streiten Kraftwerk und Rap-Produzent Moses Pelham seit Jahren durch alle Instanzen. Nun trafen sie sich vor dem Bundesverfassungsgericht. [...] Es gebe zwar "unterschiedliche Rechtspraktiken", erklärte Florian Sitzmann, Professor an der Pop-Akademie Baden-Württemberg, aber das sogenannte "Source-Clearing" sei "im Prinzip möglich", auch wenn dabei "kreatives Schaffen erschwert" und "viel Energie verschleudert" werde. Er kenne eine aktuelle Produktion, "da sitzt der Rechtsanwalt mit dem Rapper im Studio", und gebe laufend Stellungnahmen ab, ob etwas noch mehr verfremdet oder die Zustimmung Dritter eingeholt werden muss.

Google offers YouTube copyright support - BBC News
YouTube owner Google says it will help fund up to $1m (£650,000) in legal fees for some content creators who have received copyright takedown notices. It will step in if it feels their material is considered to be fair use. However the firm admitted that only a handful of people have been chosen to benefit from this support. Copyright holders are able to make requests to Google - or other sites - to take down content under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). However there are exceptions to the law, which vary around the world but can include the use of other material for the purposes of commentary and parody. If a small portion of somebody else's work is used in this context, or in news reporting or for teaching purposes in the US, it can be exempt from copyright legislation.

Open Letter to @FuckJerry, @TheFatJewish, and accounts like them. | Comedian Davon Magwood
[ via Casey Neistat ] I didn’t really think I was going to write this letter. I thought “hey it’s the nature of the beast”, but that thought really pissed me off. It shouldn’t be the nature of the beast. What added insult to injury, was one of the followers of “TheFatjewish” says in my comment sections “That’s how social media works”, then a lot of my fellow comedian friends mentioned how they have had their jokes stolen and reposted on sites like these without getting credit, even a “Times” magazine editor said that he also had a tweet stolen and reposted. [...] What I noticed happening were sites and people reposting my words with the picture and the words and not my freaking name!

Online pirates could face 10 years in jail - BBC News
The proposed measures are mainly targeted at the distributors of pirated content - the people creating copies of movies, sometimes before release, and uploading them to be downloaded by thousands upon thousands. It's not, the police are clear to point out, aimed at small-time downloaders - although there are other ways and means to prevent that too. The consultation phase will likely turn heated. Internet rights groups will question the influence Hollywood and the music industry has over the day-to-day operations of the police - after all, industry bodies, funded by top studios and record labels, have paid for staff to work in police stations with the sole brief of investigating copyright crime. They'll also say the way to "solve" online piracy is to offer affordable, flexible ways to consume new film and music - not jail terms.

Latest TPP Leak Reveals Even Harsher Copyright Rules - Forbes
The US is also calling for criminal sanctions for copyright infringement, even where the infringement isn’t being carried out for commercial reasons. “If the US gets its way, then criminal penalties will apply even against users who were not seeking financial gain from sharing or making available copyrighted works, such as fans and archivists,” write Jeremy Malcolm and Maira Sutton of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). “Such a broad definition is ripe for abuse.” Indeed, a similar provision in a free trade agreement between Columbia and the US led to copyright laws that saw a Columbian graduate student arrested for posting another student’s academic paper online without permission.

In The Fappening's Wake, 4chan Intros DMCA Policy | TorrentFreak
+++ http://gigaom.com/2014/09/03/why-4chan-created-a-copyright-shield-in-the-wake-of-the-apple-leak/ "The real reason that 4Chan changed its policy, though, likely has little to do with a shift in Poole’s personal views. Instead, it looks more like a frantic legal tactic to protect Poole from copyright lawsuits from Lawrence and others. By now, Poole’s lawyers have probably advised him that copyright owners must register their photographs with the Copyright Office in order to collect what is known as “statutory damages” — which allow owners to collect up to $150,000 for every infringing photograph. 4Chan, in other words, has likely raced to erect the DMCA shield before the celebrities register their photos." +++ https://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2014/09/03/3-count-4chan-4-takedown/ "4chan Will Now Remove Awful Images—If They’re Copyrighted"

Those YouTube Promo Plans Are A Lot More Common Than You Might Think
But it's something of a necessary evil, he continues. With copyright issues and the struggle to remain relevant amongst the sea of other YouTubers trying to get their Let's Plays noticed, a cushy bonus like a few extra bucks per thousand views could feel like a good deal. And so Boogie warns to take the videos you see with a grain of salt, because these kinds of deals are fairly widespread within the community. And despite many of these contracts necessitating a disclosure of the agreement in the descriptions of these videos, not every YouTuber is as open about the deals they make, Boogie says.

But that's more than YouTube's database needs to see to know I've taken something I have no right to rebroadcast or republish and put it on their system. It doesn't really matter to me, though, as I'm not selling ads on it.

BBC News - Is Hollywood's blockbuster model broken?
The irony is that Spielberg almost singlehandedly invented the blockbuster genre. When his film Jaws was released in 1975, Hollywood realised that making a few big-budget films a year that appealed to the masses was more lucrative than making dozens of smaller ones, and a business model was born. Since then budgets have soared and artistic merit has taken a back seat. [...] After a wave of acquisitions in the 80s and 90s, the six "majors" that dominate global box office are now parts of massive media conglomerates. They have found ways to both boost profitability of their films and mitigate the risks associated with making such huge investments. [...] The first thing the studios have done is spread the risk by getting dozens of smaller production companies to invest alongside them, reducing their exposure to a potential flop.
