Apparently the ASWSU made good on its threat to have the YouTube video of Professor David Leonard's antics yanked.
The video has been replaced with the following text:
Copyright of what? Stupidity in public? Arrogance? What a crock!!!
That's okay, there's plenty of places to post a video on the Internet.
Apparently, the Daily News was too quick to praise YouTube. Too bad. Now YouTube is going to be drawn into the controversy as well for chickening out.
Some examples of copyrighted content (although not all) are:
-Including sitcoms, sports broadcasts, news broadcasts, comedy shows, cartoons, dramas, etc.
-Includes network and cable TV, pay-per-view and on-demand TV
-Music videos, such as the ones you might find on music video channels
-Videos of live concerts, even if you captured the video yourself
Even if you took the video yourself, the performer controls the right to use his/her image in a video, the songwriter owns the rights to the song being performed, and sometimes the venue prohibits filming without permission, so this video is likely to infringe somebody else's rights.
-Movies and movie trailers
-Slide shows that include photos or images owned by somebody else
How a personal video made with a personal camera in a public place falls into that definition is beyond me. It doesn't matter. They'll never stop it.
