The Long Arm of Copyright

·

It's ironic, within the same month that YouTube user moffstarr's account and all his uploaded videos (including the more than 300 run-throughs of old arcade games that I'd been adding to MAME reviews) were removed from YouTube because a single company claimed the rights to images of one of the games, to read a review of new gaming-specific video site WeGame on TechCrunch with the line Game studios love this sort of content because it’s free promotion for their products.

Then again, this is the same month in which it's still illegal (in the UK) to copy a CD to your computer for your personal use.
