Review Update  
So, I was going to review Fringe today instead of Pretty Handsome because nikkiwawa79 asked me too. I spliced up Fringe for YouTube, zipped it up for Megaupload, set things to go and went to bed. I woke up this morning to find SIX emails from YouTube saying Fox was blocking my video for copyright infringement.

While okay, yes, I was being a naughty girl, what amazes me is that they yanked the videos SECONDS after going live, if the email timestamps are any indication. I didn't even name it Fringe or anything close. Even the file names were altered. I don't know how a robot could catch it then. Could it really be some person Fox pays to monitor every new video that comes out every minute? Crazy.

I thought okay, well, still got my MegaUpload going and went to do some work. During sometime between 6am and 9am, my computer reset itself and I lost hours and hours of uploading. Super fun.

Fringe, for the moment, is jinxed. I still have everything ready to go for Pretty Handsome, so sorry Nikki. If anyone has any other sites where I could upload Fringe to watch without putting an imbed player on my website and eating up brandwith, that would be fabu. I am just going to toss it up for uploading in a zip on my webspace tonight.

I heard something on NPR while driving home about one of the big media companies suing the pants off Google for copyright violations. They must already be cracking down, darn it.

I totally understand them doing it but if they aren't going to make things available for people on their website, then what do they expect? They need to either move with the times, get up to speed, or allow people to distribute things with the knowledge that most people will watch the shows or at least, support advertising through YouTube and Google video, which they could go for a portion of.

I know they are really cracking down on fanvids which just amazes me. I know so many people who discovered Buffy and Angel through musicvids on YouTube and then bought the DVDs. I don't know why any network would take issue with free publicity like that.
