The rules, as far as pirating content on either Facebook or YouTube goes, I find very odd and very inconsistent. For instance, five or six months ago, I posted a video that I made from a trip to the National Air and Space Museum. I filmed some of the exhibits and set them to music–Cy Curnin’s Strange Ways, a most awesome song from an even more awesome album–and posted the video to Facebook, when it was soon pulled.
I later learned that this was because of the musical accompaniment.
Now my question is: I clearly didn’t ask Curnin to use his song, though is that the same as ‘stealing’ content?
And isn’t stealing in some ways is similar to murder, in that you can’t murder someone by accident (though you could not intend to kill someone, which the law recognizes as manslaughter– despite its obviously patriarchal origins).
Though back on point, considering that I purchased the music that I used in the video, wasn’t my usage only an extension of the rights that accompanied that purchase in the first place?
Or do I, as someone who’s actually purchased the song, have any rights at all as far as its usage goes?
