Honestly, I don't care. Who buys a surface anyways?
The sad thing is the Let's Plays originated as a kind of fun art form. Then Youtube got ahold of the concept, and turned it into the shittiest laziest kind of "creative work" I've ever seen.
You can get adblock for firefox on the android. I hate firefox on android in terms of UI, but adblock is a necessity.
Fair use for LPs:
Academic: Hell no
Parody: Nope, except in the rarest of cases
Commercial nature or is for nonprofit: quite clearly commercial
The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole: usually they play through the whole game.
The effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work: Possibly detrimental
I don't see any path for fair use in there. It doesn't really meet any of the requirements.
Yes, some people actually make money off playing games and putting that on the internet. They are also almost exclusively the worst, least interesting LPers in the universe. I wish the idea for let's plays never got out.
Right of first sale...
...is completely irrelevant to making derivative works and distributing those.
That's what you were going to say before you hit preview then submit too early, right?
I'm sure your mind-numbing lack of intellectual curiosity and trivially short attention span makes you everyone's favorite to talk to too.
Please adblock the hell out of everything. No one deserves money for letting somone mind control you.
It's not that it can't be. It's that it isn't. Name one intellectually interesting occurrence in Star Trek(2009), that raises questions of any sort.
Check out the 50th anniversary special this year. I have heard that your wish will granted(temporarily).
Yeah, I know how you feel. Star Trek was a rare bastion of (semi)intellectualism on television, technobabble aside. To see all that removed in favor of violence, pretty colors, and snappy writing, makes me feel sort of depressed.
Of course, the reality is that everyone who likes the non-Abrams Trek's tone has options. The current incarnation of Doctor Who on BBC has exactly the same mix of high-concept, technobabble, silliness, and mystery uncovering plots that Star Trek used to have.
Yep. I'm recording people I meet all the time, with a low-fidelity camera called "memory." What privacy?
Presumably "contempt of congress," a federal crime. Congressional inquiry is just a fancy way of saying "Bill of attainder" these days. Which is awful. The only time there was a serious attempt in congress to study something and get feedback that I can think of in the past couple decades was the 9/11 commission. And that was far from a success story.
If they did, there's a good chance they'd be letting out trade secrets that other oil companies could use too.
