It looks like Christmas came early from YouTube this year, and my account's arbitrary Content ID smack has been lifted. In celebration, here's a video I posted a few weeks ago to my blip.tv account. It's about Mirror's Edge, creative risks, and a fat gaptoothed guy with a bad haircut talking about video games. Unless, of course, a cold, soulless algorithm running on a dusty server in a dark room recognizes "Still Alive" and, with no proper understanding of the nature of fair use or the complex legal and corporate mechanizations that wrought it into being, promptly designates this video as infringement. What's that? No, I'm not bitter at all.
And, because apparently IP trolls, are apparently claiming his music as their own and he suggests attribution to help alleviate that, I do use a snippet of "Long Road Ahead" from Kevin McLeod in this video. His website ( www.incompetech.com ) has some great royalty free songs and I've been a fan of his music and approach to his art for a long time now.
There, now I won't have to talk about IP laws until SOPA/PIPA passes and I can go apeshit for a whole separate set of reasons. Sheesh.
