And now for something completely different in the battle for copyright controls on YouTube… When all else fails, give the content away!
While the Python troupe aren’t the first to make this move, they just might be the funniest! In all seriousness, this is truly something that could only occur in the 21st Century.
Let’s face it, everyone who has tried to fight “piracy” on YouTube has ended up smelling like elderberries. I’m all for copyrights (I own a bunch myself), but you aren’t going to stop theft on YouTube… nor are you going to win over any fans.
Python reacts in style… give it away (in higher quality, no less), but ask people to buy your stuff! Pefecto!
