Only if your home movies are of a sporting event that other people are paying millions to broadcast,...
You're an idiot if you think video of a huge sporting event is anywhere near the same level as videos of home videos of cats and babies falling over.
The amount of contempt you're showing towards the huge effort of everyone involved in the broadcast of a race is staggering.
You still don't seem to understand that if you don't own that content you aren't allowed to edit that DVR'd video and stick it online without the permission of the creator.
FOM has paid a considerable sum to create the content and the broadcasters have paid a lot to show that content, why do you think copyright laws should be changed so you can free ride on the backs of all those hard working people to make your own videos.
Would you be able to do the same with any other TV show or Movie? No of course not, you've not paid anything towards the creation of the content so you can't use it. I really don't see how anyone could ever justify stealing the content in this way.
Why is F1 content any different to anything else in the world in your opinion?
It was implied that editing and maintaining videos was some sort of Manhattan Project level of undertaking. That is what I am talking about. The main difference is that the videos of cats and babies falling over is they get more hits than the F1 videos that are ruthlessly taken down.
I am simply arguing that for FOM or F1 to move forward with the rest of the world they would be wise to ease up a bit on stifling the creativity of fans who are supporting the product they're trying to sell. There is no reason for them to get all pissy about some fan made video showing 30 seconds of footage from a race 2 years ago. Desperate and futile efforts to limit their presence on the internet are counter productive.
What do the BBC and other broadcasters do with the content after the race weekend is over? Do they make money from old broadcasts? How would the BBC suffer if someone (or even the BBC) put the 2010 Belgian GP on YouTube? Would it kill off their 2010 Belgian GP video sales?
You couldn't possibly think FOM are utilising the internet to its full potential. To believe so would indicate a stultifying lack of imagination.
