Copyright with laughs

November 7, 2012 in Comment, General, Links

This was spotted by member Tim Harries. It features on the Paper Wings Podcast, which says:

This video is a real world, straight-shootin’ explanation of copyright law given at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year. Josh Wattles is the adviser-in-chief to deviantART and is a funny lawyer (imagine that) who describes the nature of fandom candidly – both its benefits to the copyright holder and the problems.

A look at the notoriously tricky subject of copyright law with laughs? Sounds good to us. Read more on this here.

As America re-elects President Obama, credit must surely be given to this cartoon celebrity endorsement.

League of Extraordinary Silliness

November 5, 2012 in General, News

You may have noticed fewer updates on the blog over recent days. This is because the entire blog team decamped to the Midlands to celebrate the wedding of one of our own: Mr Alex Hughes.

The motley bunch of members above, pictured at Alex’s steampunk wedding (think The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) are Rob Murray, Huw Aaron, Matt Buck, Alex Hughes, Nathan Ariss, Royston Robertson, Tim Harries and Clive Goddard.

We send our hearty congratulations to Alex and Maria.
