More Found on You Tube

This kid manages to cram at least 2 seperate violations of copyright, and a depiction of illegal drug use into his video. Watch it while you can... I think its an interesting example of some of the productive stuff going on right now.

It will be interesting to see what happens if Universal goes ahead with the planned legal action against You Tube it announced today. If they try to follow Mgm v Grokster and argue that the You Tube business model promotes infringement, when many of the infringers on You Tube, like our Boba Fett enamored friend here, are not simply passing around copies of songs (as on tradtional p2p) but creating something out of existing media it could be a very interesting, very important test of the Grokster rule. (Note: the sentence I just wrote is a mockery of proper grammer. Meh. I'm blogging.)
