If you were tuning in for Fred’s live draws of the last comic, you might have noticed that he is no longer playing music in the background.
Since the move from justin.tv, Fred had been careful to play only creative commons music and other stuff like ocremix where he had received direct permission. But youtube’s copyright bots misidentified two of the songs he played and flagged them anyway. They also flagged the sound of his printer in the background as a copyrighted song, and flagged a non-MT video of his son’s class singing Jingle Bells. Here are some screenshots:
Youtube handles this better than justin.tv does, with communication and a dispute mechanism. But Fred is understandably sick and tired of it all. The drawing is more important.
So join us for the live draws to see the comic and visual novel in progress. It’s still a lot of fun. Just bring along your own music.
