Bye bye YouTube videos!

I read in the papers today that YouTube removed over 30 000 clips and videos at the request of The Japan Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers.  I was curious to see how that would affect the videos I had put on my site (mostly opening credits of different anime or previews) and I’d say maybe 6 of the ten are now gone.  I’ll leave the empty video windows there for posterity.  :) 

It makes sense.  American studios were having clips pulled, it was only a matter of time before other countries followed suit.  Perhaps there are more people out there today who have learned a bit about copyright.  Or… perhaps not.  I’ve been to a few copyright seminars through work for interlibrary loans and it can get pretty confusing between standards for different countries and different publishers licensing agreements.  For example, it’s legal in the States to email articles to patrons but illegal in Canada.  So we have to attach copyright sheets to all of our articles asking the borrowing libraries to print the article and destroy the file and hope they follow through.  Thinking about copyright issues gives me a headache.

    Ha, well it’s not really YouTube’s fault. People are uploading illegal files (like tv shows and music videos). If the site doesn’t take them down they’d get sued.

    YouTube’s gonna be a lot less interesting…

    Ur, English dubbed Bleach is on right now… so bad…
