Legal Yes, even more copyright and intellectual property stuff. We have several stories on this one today, so I figured I'd throw them all together. First and foremost, ACTA has finally been dragged out of the shadows and into the light (thanks to the EU parliament), so we can take a look at what's in there. Is it really as bad as everyone thinks it is? Short answer: yes. Long answer: Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees.

Unfortunatly article is all about technical mambo jambo. Real issue is this, if someone makes video(lets call it Burt) out of small piece of video (lets call this Lester) that is made by another person and maker of Burt gets money from showing Burt is it fair use? Shouldn't maker of Lester get some part of money from Burt maker? If you look these Hitler videos clearly it might look like that there isn't any money on play, but there is actually alot. Even if the maker of Burt don't get any money the site that hosts Burt might get, is it fair for maker of Lester?

but this is not the issue here, the makers of the Hitler vs. PS3, Hitler vs. GTA4 tech issues, Hitler vs. nVidia Fermi etc don't make any money, the hosting service does through ads... and that's a different thing
