digistil: Why do we still have DRM?
MmmmBacon: Weird. In the comments on that article are horror stories of Youtube taking people's videos down for no legitimate reason, and not responding to appeals for months, etc. I've had one of my videos flagged exactly once by Youtube, EA noted that it included footage from "Left 4 Dead" and "Warhammer Online" in my video, and thus they wanted it taken down. I responded with "Fair use, journalistic review" (I was reviewing good games for Halloween, as well as different Halloween events in a variety of MMORPGs), and Youtube not only dropped the hold on my video, there is no record of the 'infraction' at all.I'm sure some people have had bad experiences with Youtube, but I've put up well over a hundred video podcasts now (under two different series), and have only been tagged one time, which was cleared up in less than a day. I'm pretty sure that grossly inaccurate DMCA takedowns on Youtube are the rare exception, and not the norm.

Wolfmanjames: Looks like the Dems need to have a chat with their entertainment industry donors.
Barakku: Wait EA can claim rights for Left 4 Dead? I thought they only distributed it.
funk_soul_bubby: I got flagged for a using a Blind Willie McTell song set to a video. Video is still up... Nobody seems to care when you use something like Blind Willie McTell. I guess it's only the profitable crap.
mr smart the great: New rule if you make false claims big companies your to pay 50 bucks per person who wants to view the video all fines made shall go to removing Americas debt.
GranoblasticMan: Wolfmanjames: Looks like the Dems need to have a chat with their entertainment industry donors.All of congress does. But until we figure out how to deal with legalized bribing lobbying, we're pretty much at the mercy of mega-corporations, regardless which party's in power.
