Copyright Violation & StSanders???

One of my previous posts, I wrote about StSanders videos, the hillllaaaarrriiioooouuussss take on live concert footage by guitar heroes like Santana, Steve Vai, Eric Clapton, Slash, Angus Young and many more …!

StSandersUnfortunately, the videos have been removed by YouTube as a copyright violation!! The account suspended!!

Really??? Copyright violation?? Anyone who has seen at least one of his videos, can vouch that its original to every sec of it. He created the sound and pasted on a live video of a concert footage!! The result was hysterical! For no ordinary reason, it was ranked amongst the best of 2007 online videos by Wired magazine (“The Year in Online Videos” #4)!! The following was the Wired detailed article on it. Hilarious YouTube Parodies ‘Shred’ Guitar Gods

While tons of DVD rips of live concert are streamed every sec out of YouTube servers, how can they go after such wonderful creation? Apparently its not YouTube, its probably the producers of the original video footage. Wonder if they are really serious or doing this to gain cheap publicity!

Long live StSanders, you are the man! Hope to be able to see some of your whackiest creation elsewhere on the web! They can kill the creation, but not creativity!!

Note: found a video on YouTube, an interview with Santeri Ojala (a.k.a. StSanders) from Jimmy Kimmel show. Slash (GnR) was on the show too, and StSanders got to murder Slash video right in front of his eyes, LOL 🙂 Of course, towards the end, Slash couldn’t take the mockery anymore!!
