Copyright Complaint Notice Filings in the Scene? WTF?

Published on: June 5, 2009

It’s not that I have already to deal with a lot of crap at the moment that something that just happened a few days ago has to come on top of all of it to “make my day” and “make my head shake in disbelief’“. It started with a big fat screen where you can see the snapshot of below, when I logged into one of my YouTube.com accounts. I was forced to acknowledge the message, before I could do anything else. I was upset at first, because I thought that once more some idiot would claim something that is not his to begin with to cause trouble and inconvenience for YouTuber’s, because they are full of themselves. Dreyfus – Jarre – Oxygene & The Demoscene Wouldn’t be the first time. I still remember when in February 2008 a company with the name FRANCIS DREYFUS MUSIC came along and claimed the video recording of the PC/MS DOS demo called “Contrast” by the French demo group “Oxygene” from 1996 as their intellectual property that I was supposed to be infringing on. Well, Dreyfus did believe back then that any video with the word “Oxygene” in the title must be automatically infringing on the rights they hold for the music by the French musician Jean Michel Jarre with the same title. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Right … Anyhow, I did a Google search for the name of the somebody who claimed ownership of material used in some of my videos. Matt Swoboda,[…]

Where is the Delirium DVD by Cirque du Soleil?

The Cirque du Soleil show Delirium, which was called a “music concert” rather than a traditional Cirque du Soleil show, was the first experiment by Cirque to transport the experience of a Cirque show from the Big Top into the arena environment to be able to reach a greater audience. This experiment was obviously successful, because they converted their oldest touring show Saltimbanco to become an “Arena Show”. Saltimbanco Arena re-launched in the year 2007. Delirium was only running between 2006 and 2008, 2 years. I don’t know why they stopped touring with it in 2008, but that is also not the reason why I am writing this blog post. I watched Delirium in 2006 here in Fresno, California, the first time that a Cirque du Soleil production made it here. It was a good show, different, yes, but different does not mean bad. The show was obviously filmed by a professional film crew at one time during the shows run, because in summer 2008 Cirque announced something unusual. I cannot recall that Cirque ever did something like it in the past. Delirium Shown in Movie Theaters They announced the screening of Delirium in movie theaters. It was only shown at selected movie theatres and only for a few days. I missed that and thought that it will be running longer, like a movie release. But I was lucky, they announced “Delirium Encore“, another screening of the show at local theaters. There were only three screenings, the main one on[…]

A Movie That You Should Watch

I finally got around to watch the sequel to the documentary “Zeitgeist” called “Zeitgeist Addendum“. It was already released last year in October. The first part was released in June 2007 and created a lot of controversy I blogged about the first installment and some other related documentaries that were release around the same time last January. I highly recommend checking those out as well. You can watch all of them online, free and perfectly legal… no copyright infringement crap.?? You can find all of them on Google Video, but for the Zeitgeist video’s I suggest to make a detour and go to their official web site first, because they have some more interesting stuff up there, beyond the documentaries itself. The URL is ZeitgeistMovie.com When part one was released, some people tried to down-play it and stuff it into the box labeled “Conspiracy Theory“, which does not do the movie justice. Some people were offended, but I think that this happened unintentionally, because in Addendum they changed the tone a little bit and also elaborated in much more detail the points that are a bit more radical and could be misunderstood by some folks. Addendum in particular has at its core the presentation of facts, historic and present day facts and figures, mathematical stuff. No, not statistics or probability stuff, which is basically the interpretation of seemingly unrelated figures with filling in the gaps and missing connections through more or less educated guesses. No, No, that would only be[…]

Moments in History – The Fall of the Berlin Wall

It is now about three month ago that I wrote about the Version 4 of my Berlin Wall video. Since then I got visited by my family who brought with them four DVDs (actually 7, because two of the DVDs are an entire series) that I had ordered from Amazon.de and shipped to my parents address in Berlin, Germany. All of the DVDs are documentaries in German language about East Germany and the Berlin Wall. They provided me with tons of new or better material that I decided to work on a Version 5 of my Berlin Wall video. This will probably take a while, so I decided to create another very short video just about the events surrounding the night when the Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989. I got already a bunch of positive feedback on Facebook.com and online video sharing web sites where I uploaded the video too. Judge for yourself, here it is. Backup URL to Video on vimeo (http://vimeo.com/2446975). Moments in History – The Fall of the Berlin Wall from Carsten Cumbrowski on Vimeo. Of course is the video also available for download in AVI format from Mediafire.com again, here is the Link. To expand the reach of my videos, I decided to create an account at Archive.org and uploaded this video as well as my 30 minutes long Berlin Wall video V4.0. They are accessible here and here. I watched in the past months several videos that are about the nuclear holocaust and[…]

The Berlin Wall History – Lessons Learned … Again

I did a long and detailed post about the Berlin Wall in June, titled “The Berlin Wall and the Walls between Us“. It also included a 13 minutes extended edition of my video “Berlin Wall – Lessons Learned“. It was already version 3 of the video (Here are the links to version 2 and version 1 of the video as well, just for the sake of completeness). Why the different versions? Well, there are multiple reasons. First, I improved my editing skills and was able to do things better where I was unhappy about in a previous version of the video. I also got access to new or sometimes just better quality sources. One of the latest discoveries was a high quality video version of the episode “The Berlin Wall” from the National Geographic TV series “Turning Points Of History”. That 45 minutes documentary virtually contained the video snippets of all my video sources about the 1950-1970s that I already had from elsewhere (stock footage, public domain etc.), but in much better quality. I spent the last few days on version 4.0 of my video. This time I did re-created it entirely from scratch. It’s not just an edit of the previous version. I even re-cut, re-edited and re-sorted the sources again. This version is a whopping 30 min (almost) long. Note: Google Video messed something up. It shows only the first 5:41 minutes of the video. I will re-upload it again and try to figure out what the problem[…]
