Why, if we all did what you suggest, billions of dollars would be lost by helpless music hanger-oners, middlemen, and promoters (not to mention thousands of dollars from the artists themselves). What's worse a trickle down effect would inevitably start that would affect thousands of pimps, coke dealers, etc. I suggest you view my vlog on this subject at droppedframes.blogspot.com and amend your ways</satire> <seriosly> I'm not against copyright laws, I just think they need to be rethought. Copyrights last too long and copyright lawyers are too agressive on things like incident music, insignificant logos in the background of videos etc. Copyrights are supposed to protect the artists and encourage inovation. Where they go beyond that they should be challenged. I'm with Gena, I'm not going to stop filming just because our environment is saturated with pop culture that cannot be avoided.</serious>
