Well I am sure no one has noticed, but all of the links I have to videos on have gone dead. The movies have been removed due to copyright infringement. The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, and most recently Blackadder. Now I am not going to say Piracy is a good thing (although I do participate from time to time) but posting 10-30 second clips is NOT PIRACY, can’t they see this? Apparently not. Watching short clips is at worse harmless and more probably good for their business. They spend millions on commercials and previews, but let someone else create a short preview/commercial for them and all of the sudden that endangers their business model. They are not happy unless they get their pound of flesh, even if it hurts them in the long run.
