Captain Copyright

http://punchdrunksoul.com/life-purpose-2/maslows/ I’m sure you’re all heard about the new Captian Copyrightsuperhero underwear fairy right? The one created by some media corporations to teach kids about copyrights and file sharing and intellectual property? The one who rarely mentions fair use or personal backups…

If you get a chance, read their Terms of Service .. It’s quite amusing.

I especially liked these gems:

…You are not permitted to copy or cut from any page or its HTML source code to the Windows [TM] clipboard…

and this one:

…permission to link is explicitly withheld from any website the contents of which may, in the opinion of the Access Copyright, be damaging or cause harm to the reputation of, Access Copyright…

Honestly, who are they kidding? This brings back memories of DECSS. Can they really enforce that?

Crap.. looks like I broke both of those..
