Youtube Abuse Recovery

what i think needs to happen in the community right now

This is SO important to watch if you are involved in any way with youtube 

As a creator or a viewer

PLEASE WATCH THIS

this incredibly intelligent, well spoken and in touch young lady, Ann, gives a very clear overview for anyone unsure/interested of what is going on with youtube and the sex scandal type stuff going on.

Long, but worth the watch.

Movie Trivia with Kate Costello: A Modern Day Sci-Fi Homage

In today’s episode of Movie Trivia, Kate tests your knowledge of alien flicks. From Sigourney Weaver to Will Smith, how well do you know your UFO movies?

Just saw this movie last weekend and loved it. Definitely one of the best films I’ve seen this summer.

Why YouTube Adopting Creative Commons Is a Big Deal

"Making legal YouTube mashups just got a whole lot easier. The site’s video editor is now allowing its users to remix existing YouTube videos without violating anyone’s copyright. This is made possible by YouTube adopting Creative Commons licenses, offering users the chance to publish any video under the liberal CC-BY license. It’s a big step forward for YouTube, and a giant leap for Creative Commons, which previously hasn’t played a big role in the web video world.”

While this is amazing news for open source video and web video editors, I can’t help but shudder when I think of what YouTube’s remix-to-original video ratio is going to look like after this.

There’s No Basement in the Alamo! (via movielinetrivia)

Part of my job is to do the interactive YouTube annotations for our new movie line trivia game. They’re a bitch and a half to get the timing right, but it’s worth it in the end because it’s actually a really fun way to make use of/kill time on YouTube.

This post is dedicated to Chloabelle. She’ll know why.

Walking on Eggshells: Borrowing Culture in the Remix Age (by Brendan Schlagel)

"Walking on Eggshells" is a 24-minute documentary about appropriation, creative influence, re-use and intellectual property in the remix age. It is a conversation among various musicians, visual artists, writers and lawyers, all sharing their views on why and how we use and create culture, and how intellectual property law, originally designed to provide people with incentives to create, sometimes hinders creative production far more than it enhances it.
