I Hate Comedy Central
I rarely post twice in a day, but allow me to rail again the abuse of power that both YouTube and Comedy Central impose.
I linked to a South Park video yesterday that had been up or the last 5 months. It was a remix created by a YouTube user that used South Park vocals and video to sing a techno song. It was a parody and is considered legal under copyright law, but YouTube took the video down under pressure from Comedy Central (forgive me if I think that it was the popularly of my site is why they had the video taken down). Weird Al gets sued but he wins every time! Have a backbone YouTube! Just because Comedy Central says you need to take a video down doesn’t mean you have to!
Using my cosmic internet skillz, I’ve downloaded this video. Once I’m able to figure out a way to include that video in my blog, I will, just to thumb my nose at the very people that gain profit by the viewing of the video – and they will because I show the video. Don’t they understand that the more people that view South Park, the more people will watch the show?
So, for those hosebags, I thumb my nose at you like Saddam Hussien did to the U.N. In the meantime, I used the MySpace version of the video in that post (the post before this). Check it out as it’s funny, as all South Park is.
Parody is LEGAL!!!!
