YouTube ordered to pull popular guitar lessons

[QUOTE]8 July 2007 22:59 by Dela
YouTube ordered to pull popular guitar lessonsGoogle Inc.'s YouTube service has been told to remove over 100 videos from most popular guitar teacher on the site. In all, about 100 videos were removed at the request of a record company. Since the instructor used part of a Rolling Stones song in one of his videos, he was accused of copyright infringement. Two men are well known for their YouTube instruction videos for guitar playing.

David Taub, who lives in San Diego, is one of them. He has posted many instructional videos on YouTube, the most popular of which shows a simplified version of the Eagles classic, Hotel California. The video received over one hundred thousands views. He opens each video with the same line: "What's up, good people!".

Justin Sandercoe, is another London-based guitar instructor on YouTube. He has a teaching Web site — justinguitar.com. He takes Paypal donations to cover the fees and keeps the website as a free service. "I like the idea of being able to deliver quality guitar lessons to people who can't afford lessons, or who are in places where there's not that kind of access to somebody who can teach them the right stuff," he says.

Taub also has his own website, NextLevelGuitar.com. He first uploaded a clip to YouTube of him playing in the back yard and after forgetting about it for a while, realized it gathered 6,500 views on its own. He uses YouTube as a good way to send users to his own website. However, even though these videos are instructional and a fine example of a good way to use YouTube and similar services, warnings had been made about the possible copyright problems.

John Palfrey, executive director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, warned that bo9th teachers had used copyrighted songs ion their videos and predicted some months ago that they would run into trouble. "There's a very strong argument that the re-use of well-known chords in the sequence the instructor played them would be a violation of the copyright," Palfrey said at the time.
No money no music,and lo the black boots march arocss the world pillaging and raping the people because they wont pay the toll they set for music.....
