copyrights and trademarks

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Michele Tavares, Jun 29, 2003.

  1. Isn't it illegal for someone to take clips of a popular movie (like
    HArry Potter), use the clips and make your own dialogue, then release
    it online ?

    I recently saw this atrocious piece of garbage on a short film site
    that had numerous copyright violations (including music, movie, and TV

    It's hard enough to get movies made, but to have someone ripping off
    stuff for their own gain is pretty unethical.

    If anyone is watching - go sick - they are
    stealing, and it's time someone made them pay.

    It depends. Parody is a fair use defense to infringement, but has fairly
    strict and arcane requirements.

    But permissible pursuant to the AHRA.

    Fair use as a matter of law per Sony v. Universal.
    On that one you're right -- the copyright statute authorizes a single
    archival copy of software, but it cannot be transferred to anyone else.

    These things you listed are technically illegal, but I guess it's
    putting clips from a major movie on your production company's website
    & then promoting it for financial gain that poses a slightly bigger

  7. And both repealed by the DMCA (according to popular reports)

    I'm not aware of a "definitive source" that corrects erroneous information,
    urbran myths, etc. I'm an intellectual property lawyer, and I'm telling
    you -- the DMCA did not "repeal" fair use or the AHRA.

    Paul IS an IP least that has been how everything i've
    seen on the internet portrays it, and I would be inclined to believe
    it. He posted here under his real name for quite some time....

    Completely and totally wrong.
    As long as he is not as redundant as his statement to your inaccuracy.
    "Completely and totally wrong" is less a polite response, and a more 'in
    your face' response than just using one of those adjectives.

    Look me up.

    As for backing up my statement, I told you: there's no way to prove a
    negative when the negative is a silly mistatement of law.

    you, an alleged lawyer, can't even put forward your own case? You
    dont/wont/can't state your sources to back up your arguement ? You have a
    strange way of debating

    gra 007 look me up

    Jim, you're right. I think it's a character flaw that I have (along with
    modesty). ;)

  17. I would find it difficult to trust a lawyer that gave advice over
    Usenet. Would you? Even if he did, it would likely not be
    particularly applicable in Austrailia.
