Well, well, well.....
It looks like the Media Monopolists and their allies, the Conspiratorial Consolidationists, have decided to really go after the little guy now.
Especially the creative little guy.
First, they went after anyone who posted-up stuff that had been previously released by the chattle in their stables.
Which, on the face of it, was fair enough, I guess, considering that it was the chattel that made the stuff - even if it wasn't always of their own volition.
The fact that the Media Monopolists are going after Ukulele players for posting-up their own creative cover versions of songs once recorded by said chattle is just too much.
Below, one of the finest of all new Ukerists, 'seeso' explains:
I suggested the following, over at seeso's Youtube Channel:
Re: The Copyright Thing....
What if, say, 50,000 seeso fans/Uke fanatics all posted the same cover(s) and then dared the powers that be to shut us all down...
And then, if they did....Well, we could respond with a 'fine, go ahead'...and then we could all take a walk to another venue.
Wonder how they'd like them apples?
Here's the real thing....There are so many bands that I knew absolutely nothing about until I stumbled across a New Ukerist (or even just some kid with a guitar) covering them....Then, if intrigued, I went searching for that band (most often by clicking on one of the 'related' uploads on the same frickin' page)....Then, if I liked the band, I often went and bought something of theirs, either physical product , or, a download from Mr. Jobs' place....Example: The band 'Say Anything' which I only discovered after I stumbled upon a then still relatively (ie. only a few thousand subscribers at the time - ha!) unknown Julia Nunes, doing this ...I mean, honestly, are the Media Monopolists crazy?....Do they not want free Word-O-Web advertising?....Again, are they completely crazy!?....Or are they just, well.....Perhaps....Maybe....Stoopid?
