Legal Here on OSNews I've already talked about various copyright related issues here in The Netherlands - obviously because I'm Dutch and live there. As a small nation, the copyright issues we face here serve as nice, comprehensible discussion starters that we can all grok. Well, we've got another one. Our own RIAA equivalent has caused quite the stir by announcing that they will start charging bloggers and social website users for embedding YouTube videos with copyrighted content. Say what?

"A video of grandpa playing a song for you on the piano? Pay up."

Huh?

I'll admit, I have never been to Holland, don't know much about it or its laws. But is there any concept of fair use there?
