For those of you not in D.C., I wanted to make sure you saw this story from the Wed., Aug. 2 Washington Post.
It seems as if what just a couple of years ago would have set off all sorts of alarms, lawsuits and threats of lawsuits with content companies — creating video mashups — has now been not only accepted but encouraged by some of the more enlightened content companies.
The recording industry, alas, is still fighting a rear-guard action. The one non-encouraging word in the story is from a record company, which did its legal thing on a little web site that made a mash-up of he TV show, Lost. ABC didn't complain, but Nickleback's record company did.
And, of course, Ted Stevens is given a couple of good mentions.
