air guitar vid “released” from matched content limbo
Look at what I can do! Awhile ago, I drove up to Minneapolis with my documentarian to enter the regional Air Guitar Competition. This was at the tail end of a series of dance videos I’d been recording. I put this one up on YouTube a while ago, but it got blocked by Goo-Tube’s Content “Management” System. I’ve had a number of videos either muted or blocked outright, because of the copyrighted material used in the soundtracks. I found this to be a laugh-riot. After careful consideration, and really wanting to be able to show you guys this video, I worked on clearing up this legal “dispute.” YouTube’s system allowed me to enter this statement:
This is not used for profit, it is in fact intended to increase sales of the original work, the “dancing” in the video is a social/artistic commentary on air guitar (as in this contest), rock and roll, and our society’s fascination with stardom and fame.
Apparently, it worked. Yay, art. Enjoy, folks.
