Youtube

Fox subpoenas Youtube over pirated '24' show. This was heading I happened to read across many news websites. Couple of things here. First, I got to read new word 'subpoena' which the dictionary tells me means 'A writ requiring appearance in court to give testimony'. Second, there is afterall someone not happy with Youtube and keeping tab of what is happening in Youtube.

Youtube has been one of my fav website over the internet over past many months. It is just amazing how you can watch videos of practically anything from movies to sports to personal clips to hidden videos. Anytime I am bored or have some time to kill, Youtube is my website. No wonder Google bought it for tens of billions of dollars last year.

So far so good. It was just oflate that I was wondering how someone could post videos of just about anything like new pirated movies, unrated clips etc. How bad must be losses of new movies which appear in websites like Youtube. Todays news was kindof welcome relief to such thoughts. Someone had to step up to stop piracy. Companies like Youtube should expose people who indulge in piracy and copyright infringement. Let everyone learn to say NO to piracy.

Heard Shilpa Shetty's mom flew to london this week to be with her daughter(in times of publicity). What a cheap act!!!

------------------------------------

Latest incident at Nithari where Lawyers manhandled accused killers was a shame, especially when Lawyers were involved. Sincerly think that law should take its own course in punishing whoever breaks the law.

And talking of next US president, I think it's Hilary Clinton.

Have a nice weekend...

So much stuff happenning. I think it will be Hilary also but Obama is not to be ignored.

Ashley said...

I think Hilary will be the candidate, too. However, I don't see how she will possibly win since the right wing folks absolutely hate her.

Maybe John Edwards and Barak Obama. Beauty and brains?

Hmm....

A gimmick for famous people.

Okie MG. Donno worry ok.

Starry : Obama is in race but with Hillary in fray he has to work hard. To put it in real perspective, I think people will choose lady minorty over any other minority. Hillary = Minority woman + Democrat + Clinton Tag.

But I could be wrong.

Ashley : See my point made above. Welcome to my blog.

you think:'Let everyone learn to say NO to piracy.'
I think:Posting link or watching it - on U-Tube is no piracy. In fact the whole idea of internet is linked and shared info for those hapless individuals who can't afford it.

Mumbai Guy said...

GP : Read my post again, not just the snippet. I was talking about making videos illegally and posting them, not just links. Idea of internet is to link information which you voluntarily agree to share. Very different than someone posting your personal information on internet.

Fox got upset because episodes appeared on the site ahead of its scheduled broadcast. This happened due to someone copying episodes illegally and putting it all over internet. This process is called Piracy in virtual world and it is not less different than stealing. Choice is yours.
