@Checksix. Your understanding of copyright law leaves much to be desired. Authorised use has nothing to do with the acquisition method, only the use to which the copyright materiel is put. I’ve spent many a long year dealing with copyright issues and your video – which I did see before it was taken down – did not fit `fair use` or `reporting` criterion, so I’d be interested to learn under what section of copyright law you thought it would be acceptable to use an artists music without prior, written consent, just because you bought it… the broadcast/narrowcast rights remain at… Read more »

By the way,

After having a polite email conversation with the poster of the video, I offered to sign off on a putback notice. He declined. All you’re doing now is digging a bigger hole.

Bob, That’s awfully close to libel. Here is a sample if the metadatd from usgs for the KNFL ortho image from USGS.

Thank you for your last comment, Ian P. My question to Jim was to determine if he used someone else’s work product and then not give any credit in his documentation to that organization. He did not give a credit to USGS. Jim said he got the aerial photo from the USGS and I accept that although I could not find it there myself. I wanted to see if I could find the photo that he used in the scenery elsewhere and did some research. It turned up in 3 places(there may be more): MSN Virtual Earth MSN Virtual Earth… Read more »

Jim, I think it’s time to take a bit of a step back here. As I said before, and as I think Bob H is alluding to with his comments, your original posts were not about the problem you had with this specific video and why. CheckSix has publicly and privately apologised. Any actions that you and he take away from this site are entirely between yourselves. If you had originally come out and said “hey, that’s in breach of my license”, you’d have got a lot different response than you did from me. In particular, I’d have asked for… Read more »
