Idiotic Video O Day-MPAA Shows Congress How To Do a *Fair Use* Clip

8 May 2009 at 8:42:09 AM

This is breathtakingly stupid. But especially so for people that know how to make video or audio clips. Before you watch this, let me simply say how easy it is for me to use a product like WMRecorder to make a fair use clip from original footage-one can then load up the video footage in an editor and quickly get out the fair use chunk one wants or quickly extract out just the audio, also for fair use.

What MPAA proposes that people do, such as librarians, that want a fair use clip, is to use a television screen, point a camera at the teevee and set it so that the *edges* don't show, and then edit the footage.

My favorite comment from that link

Why not just have the teacher take a series of photographs of the TV screen -- at, like, 30 images per second -- and then, simply paste the photos into a blank book. The schoolkids could then have endless fun *simulating* watching the original -- by flipping the pages so fast, that the images would seem to blur together, creating the incredible illusion of a "moving picture"!
