The AP should get a life & enforce their rules for PIRACY...ie sites that SELL copyright material for profits. As far I know you can use copyright protected images and music as long as you don't make money off them. Since you provided the wallpaper for free you should have been in the clear. I could be wrong. I know someone who was sued by Jacko's legal team for using his music as "source material" in his digital art and WON because he gave away the CDs for free.
Importnant though for this site to stay onside ... we don't want to be doing anything illegally forcing us down or causing Brian any grief. The only way would be to somehow get permission ... not sure how you would do that though.
whatever you decide in the end i completely stand behind, because i would really hate to lose CC because of some stupid copyright infringement written in size 2 print at teh bottom of some disclaimer which he happened to be unable to read...play it safe, skip this idea

Unless, like MCP said, we had a password protected page that only regulars.....vets here that have earned the trust can view. It doesn't even have to be advertised as having video......sort of a "members clubhouse" if you will........like the Freemasons.....no one knows what goes on within those cyberwalls except for the insiders.....once inside we have our video library......and hookers & blow of course.

one slight problem, whos to say that a person of the media... ie pratt, or those other team 1040 guys or someone who can get thsi site to fall, dosent join and become a "vet" or "grizzeled veteran of CC"
Hey its our party and we can [hoard video clips] if we want to. I think it could be done privately or through this site INCOGNITO. ie ONLY people Brian trusted over time would be granted access.....like people who have made it into the hall of fame w/ 1,000 posts for starters.
It could work and could be discrete....ie don't even advertise that it exists therefore how would anyone know? The password could be changed every so often or if someone had priveleges revoked (like changing the locks).
makes sense, or so that Brian can get some help with the site, make it something accesible to people with 1000 posts, as well as people who are mvps because those will be the people that care the most about the site and wont turn on it, thats if the idea ever gets off the ground adn past the legalities of it all
That idea could just slither past the legalities if it isn't open to the public or adverstised. The AP is ABUSING laws set out to stop piracy and a black market (ie selling illegal copied videos or CDs) and are only trying to put the squeeze on. Extortion really. Screw 'em!
