I know how much vid makers hate when people use their clips without permission and so I have only ever done that if necessary and WITH PERMISSION, so I want to ensure the same for my own work.
I am an understanding person. I get that copyright people want to protect their work. I would imagine that if I was a creator of a tv show I would want the same respect for my material, but some music artists are selfish in asking that anytime their song is used in an MV or a blog that it is being profitted from. They want money.
that is the sad truth.
everyone wants money.
so I propose that companies come up with better systems, rather than sueing everyone.
1. open a site or something that you have to pay a monthly fee to access clips and material and then somehow you post a passcode or something with your vid (like to make companies know you have permission)
-I understand this could be a tricky thing because people could in theory get around pass codes and everything...
2. allow certain shows or movies to be able to post MVs because they are NOT taking away from DVD sales (like people who post WHOLE episodes and movies online)
These are just a few ideas and yes I know they aren't really logical, but the point is that
COMPANIES SHOULD MOVE WITH THE TECHNOLOGICAL AND CREATIVE TIMES BY COMING UP WITH A WIN-WIN SITUATION FOR VIDEOMAKERS, BLOGGERS, AND THE PEOPLE THAT END UP WATCHING/BUYING THESE COMPANIES PRODUCTS
so for now I'm weighing out my options
I'll keep you posted
