AverageAmericanGuy: Well, let's just turn this thread into one about me and not about the illegality of Lessig's use of LM's material.

Sheesh, you guys.


Well, you're claiming to have a better understanding of copyright  than the guy who developed Creative Commons and you don't even know the proper abbreviation for the Gnu Public License is.  You invite the ridicule- enjoy it.

There's a reason I have you farkied in troll pink

AverageAmericanGuy: Lessig is so biased against copyrights that it's not possible for him to judge fair use properly. He thinks the GLP is a valid contract.


And your head is so far up your ass that you just jump to arbitrary conclusions.

2/10.

yukichigai: This may actually be the case where a copyright holder gets spanked with fines for harassment. It's pretty bad.


Hahahaha... no. The record company will say something along the lines of:

- We let a 3rd party law firm handle these, it's not us.
- There's soooooo many notices we file we can't be expected to verify them all (absurd, I know).
- It was an intern who filed it, we've already handled it internally.

and they'll scurry away with nothing to show for it. Oh ok, if it's a day where this gets infront of the wrong judge who's on a crusade to dish out the most harshest punishment of all, maybe a 5k fine that can be paid by writing-off the donation of 8000 unbought CDs (currently sitting in a warehouse in Tacoma) to a library somewhere.

DMCA damages are just for the little people.

AverageAmericanGuy: Liberation Music owns the exclusive license to "Lisztomania" ... that song featured prominently in Lessig's lecture.

Pretty straightforward that Lessig was trying to use Lisztomania as one of the pillars of his presentation, seemingly without permission from Liberation Music.

I realize you geeks like to thumb your noses at content creators, and Lessig and the EFF are at the forefront of this, but the rules are the rules.

Sorry that Lessig needs to rewrite his presentation to be in line with copyright law, but maybe he should have thought about that before he used copywritten content.


Right, so just trolling then.

Says the fella who doesn't know the correct past tense of copyright.

I think you're making an argument against a position no one has taken. There's a term for that, but since someone else created it, I guess I can't use it.

Satanic_Hamster: AverageAmericanGuy: Lessig is so biased against copyrights that it's not possible for him to judge fair use properly. He thinks the GLP is a valid contract.

So based on this article, you don't think this is an example of fair use?  Did you even bother to read it, or did you decide to move straight to trolling like normal?

I can't imagine a stupider DMCA takedown request decision.
