Fans are upset that the creator of a Star Wars fan film didn't get any money from the music that Disney sued him over because of an alleged copyright infringement. But why??? You are already using COPYRIGHTED AND TRADEMARKED MATERIALS to make your Star Wars film and YOU WILL GET MONEY FROM IT AFTER IT'S BROADCAST ON YOUTUBE. Why is everyone shocked that this system is perceived as two directional by the people that own the legal rights to it?? They should be able to make money off of YOUR MOVIE too WHICH HAS THEIR SUBJECT MATTER IN IT.
Disney has done no wrong. In fact this is revealing: more companies are going to start taking control of their content from the fans BECAUSE (I'm sorry to bust your fanboy bubble) YOU NEVER REALLY OWNED IT. It was on loan and the loaner (or LOAN SHARK) is coming to collect. And he's got the corporate muscle to do it.
Up until now corporations have been at a loss on how to deal with the rampant theft, plagiarism, copyright and trademark ripping on the Internet. Seems like they've finally figured it out: You make it, get your Youtube chump check -then we take it and make some real bucks off of it (after the lawsuit -of course!)
