Is im on a boat by the lonely island considered a meme? There have been many different remixes. i could name a few.
Well, we copied their intro for our KYM AutoTune episode, so it’s certainly somewhat memetic! :)
Definitely worth an entry. Love to hear more about how it was created as well
That reminds me.
Does Rocketboom need permission to use those videos?
Do you mean the embeds on our site, copying the format in our own video, or the playing of chunks of clips on our videos? Playing only a few seconds falls under fair use (to illustrate a point, e.g. like a news organization might)
I meant in the videos.
Here’s a great read on the Code of Best Practices for a Fair Use in Online Video: http://www.centerforsocialmedia.org/resources/publications/fair_use_in_online_video/
The more someone complies with the ideas outlined in that article, the better their defense would be should someone try to claim copyright infringement.
