First, have a look at this video of Huxley dancing.

Now, have a look at this email I just got from YoutTube:

  1. Wow – I knew of patent trolls like Lodsys, but at least they do hold pieces of paper that state they have some patent or other. We’ll have to invent a name for folks who claim copyright they don’t actually have.

  2. Don’t worry too much about that; it’s an automated thing that the corporate d-bags who yank YouTube’s choke chain run videos through. YouTube technically isn’t supposed to do that, but they do anyway.

    By the way, SME is Sony Music Europe.

  3. Oh, now I get why it’s a serious problem. People will watch Huxley’s video instead of buying CDs!

  4. The problem is that fair use is not as clearly spelled out in copyright law as it could be, so precedent plays a large role in determining a fair use claim. However in this particular instance the precedent is about as clear cut as it can get, see Lenz v. Universal.

    It’s sad that in Germany they are blocking the video but with copyright law variations around the globe it’s currently an unavoidable consequence.

  5. Huxley has decided to cut his performance tour short and skip Germany entirely. “leck mich am Arsch, Deutsche. Ich bin nicht dein Krapfen” he says.

  6. You should reverse your video before you upload it. His dancing in reverse will be the same, but then we can hear about “Satan Sweet Satan”.
