No sooner had I made my IP lawyer rant than I found another classic "What were they thinking?" lawyer boo-boo.
NBC are going after youtube for hosting the SNL "Lazy Sunday" video that was going round like wildfire not so long ago.
Techdirt called it right in their headline:
NBC Lawyers Cut Off SNL's Best Promotional Vehicle In Years
This was a huge pulicity vehicle for SNL, yet the lawyers wanna shut it down and charge people $1.99 for it... Mmmmm good job Mr Lawyer! Let's talk about your bonus this year...
Don't think you can get the original even on google anymore, but there are plenty of scene for scene copies..http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=944783564184723424&q=lazy+sunday
