That's crazy. If you read that carefully, it seems that it says, in essence,  that SBS, whoever the flying **** they might be, has the legal right to regulate all ISU-related videos uploaded to any internet platform, regardless of origin, as long as they are not geo-blocked for Korea. That means that not only fan-uploaded videos, but any videos of ISU competitions uploaded by anyone, including other broadcasters who have also purchased broadcast rights, can be deleted at SBS's request unless geo-blocked for Korea!!!

 

Who the freakin' frackety-frack ever agreed to that contract at ISU?! Or did they simply fail to read the fine print? Like, wtf?!! This sounds like SBS thinks they have exculsive worldwide rights to all ISU content.

It's possible they won't go after any official ones- ie if BESP uploads anything to youtube, it's less likely that SBS will go after them, simply because it's a bigger hassle, as BESP I imagine, would have a similar clause in their contract with ISU for broadcasting (live, streaming and online on any platform). Official uploads would also allow geo-blocking so there are plenty of nuances involved.

 

The only ones going down right now, are fan-uploaded videos- but if you want to get into legal nuances, there may be plenty of legality issues involved in fan-uploads themselves (just because there are no profits involved does not mean it automatically falls under fair use). But also, fan uploads probably have less legal protection (financially etc) to defend against takedowns.

yea, we just realised that worlds 17 cannot be uploaded there because of copyright lol. Maybe some china tv bought the broadcast. But other figure skating channels are doing really well so i wouldn't worry too much about it. Think they only care about chinese broadcasting rights which isn't a lot. 

 

we're currently looking into wordpress embedding, basically compiling videos from various sources

 

if we want to host our own video site, does anyone know how to do this? or are there any good file sharing sites that can be used to compile? 

Anything you do publicly will be likely to be attacked in the same way, especially if it becomes popular, because then those claiming copyrights will find out about them. The easier it will be to find out who is behind it - by registering a website, or making a wordpress account in your name and so on - the higher the possibility of actual people being slammed with copyright claims and perhaps accusations of piracy. That's partly why youtube and video hosting sites are better, because they add a level of anonymity, especially since one can make a million accounts on google and re-upload whenever they get shut down. Also since youtube takes immediate action, it satisfies the copyright claimers. If however they find the real people doing this, it can get worse. Not quite the same thing, but some of you might be aware there used to be people uploading jdramas some time back, until the Japanese TV Stations found them and forced them to stop. Or occasionally people even getting arrested for sharing anime and such online. So, personally, I don't recommend starting websites or self-hosting copyrighted videos, no matter how unfair the claims might seem.

to bilibili it goes then, at least only three of the H&L videos we uploaded were struck out, the rest was fine it seems.

So regal.   He looks like the prince, even though we already know he’s the king.

機能性といえば、平昌オリンピックの後にスピードスケートの選手の方々とお話する機会があって、「スピードスケートのピタッとした新素材にしたほうが絶対滑りやすいと思うよ。あれでジャンプしたら絶対もっと回れるよ」って言われて、僕は機能性というところに興味があるので、話が盛り上がりました。たしかに、スピードスケートの方々が着ている新素材で回るともしかしたらもっと回りやすいかもしれませんね。ただ、衣装についてルールが定められていますし、フィギュアは魅せるものなので表現に影響が出てしまい、おそらくスピードスケートのような新素材で滑るのは不可能に近いと思います。あまりにも身体のラインが強調されてしまいますし、模様をつけたとしてもフィギュアスケートではなくなってしまうような気がします。(笑)

 

Rough translation:

 

In terms of functionality, I've had an opportunity to talk with speed skaters after PC and they said "If you use the new materials that are used for speed skaters suit, it would help you skate in more ease. You would definitely be able to rotate more" Since I'm interested in functionality of costumes, we've had really good conversation then. I'm sure if we used the same materials as them, it may be able to help us spin/rotate easier. However, we have rules concerning costumes and also figure skating has aesthetic side to consider so it may impact on the expression of programs therefore it is almost impossible to use such materials for our costumes. Not just that, the material would emphasise the body line too much therefore I'm afraid even if the materials with pattern, it would no longer be called figure skating.

 

 

Yuzu! Your UA is already barely legal so if you skate with costume made with speed skate suit material, I'm sure that would become a weapon of mass destruction....:10742290: He knows, he knows exactly what we're dreaming thinking...:13877886:

I remember he said he watches himself over and over again in competitive and non competitive vids.  He knows what looks good and what doesn’t and presents himself exactly the way he wants.  I also agree he knows what we are “ dreaming thinking.” lol

Fan uploads are the low-hanging fruit. But that doesn't necessarily mean that this will stop once the fan uploads are gone. 😕

OT guys but I'm in Tokyo and I finally found the subway ad! 

 

The one I saw is at Shinbashi station if anyone is nearby :) It runs for over 3 minutes so you can watch the whole program!
