I've just finished Mark Levy's very informative article, What's Legal, in the January issue of Videomaker. My "masterpieces" are travel vignettes that benefit greatly from the use of familiar music. I show them in my living room, and I give copies to my travel companions. Friends often suggest that I enter them into contests. Trying to obtain permission is incredibly complex, and the same video with royalty-free music simply doesn't have the same impact.
In this week's Video Bits & Bytes: Mark and Derek have news on JVC's new GZ-HD7 hi-def Everio...and some Free Final Cut Pro Plug-ins from Noise Industries. They'll also tell you about StudioNow.com, a new Online Video Editing Community where YOU can get paid to edit other people's videos online. Additionally, they have news about Blinkx.com launching a new wiki for Video SEO and about a Viacom law-suit against YouTube for 1 Billion Dollars.
Editor's note: Recently we published several articles dealing with copyright and fair use issues. We believe with the growing proliferation of content sharing sites like YouTube, the subject is going to get bigger and broader, become embedded in legal voodoo, and perhaps take the "joy" out of the new video-sharing industry. Plus who really owns your video once it's "out there"? Below are a few of the many letters we've recently received on this subject, and the discussion will certainly continue.
In our News & Technology segment with Mark and Derek, It's the "Battle of the Titans" over video-sharing. Telecom networks, Verison and Comcast, are getting into the video sharing business. Version is in talks with YouTube, while Comcast is hoping its launch of Ziddio.com will cut into the massive YouTube audience. YouTube was recently purchased by Google and we talk some more on what that means to the independent producer. We also provide details about a contest in which you can produce a music video for the band "Moby".
We've been with the magazine from the first issue and it's been a really fun ride. We've seen the birth of desk top video editing, the emergence of the DV format, the ups & downs of web streaming video (first as all hype in 2001 and now as reality), real-time video editing and DVD burning for everyone. Now we are on the brink of perhaps the biggest technology revolution of them all -- HD!!
