31 Blogs of Christmas
Recently I uploaded a new Kingdom Comedy video…twice. Here’s the first version:
If you’re on a mobile device, you just saw a fat load of nothing. That’s because Disney recognized their song and decided to take action…by blocking access to the video…but only blocking mobile devices. SO as I sit here on my laptop, I can watch it with no issues.
I’m actually pretty impressed with Disney for this. Believe it or not, with all the videos I’ve made about the parks over the years – using park audio – this is the first time I’ve run afoul of their copyright policies. Even then, their response was not to shut me down but just to restrict my videos from mobile devices (Sheesh! How many times am I going to mention mobile devices in this blog?*)
I know a rep at Disney didn’t see my video personally and decide what action to take…I’m sure the whole process is automated. But I still respect Disney’s method of protecting their copyrighted material while still allowing fan projects to be posted. Merry Christmas, Disney!
Oh, and if you’re on a mobile device and want to see my new Kingdom Comedy, the edited for mobile devices version is below. (You miss the “sing-a-long” portion, but you still get the main thrust of the video.)
