The Perpetually Confused Dan Marvin
“UPDATE: Apparently Skype has fair use policies. So Jim and Alex were wrong, and in violation, to insist they have rights to Sye’s voice as they did. Actually, I believe Jim and Alex was violating Skype policy and should, and could, be banned from Skype. If I was an Atheist I might pursue that type of avenue.”
Oh dear, poor befuddled Dan STILL doesn’t understand! We at no point said that we had exclusive rights to Sye’s voice! We merely presented clear terms for subsequent use of the recording – namely that it should not be edited, or used for commercial purposes on any Christian channels. If Sye had uploaded the entire unedited show, correctly attributed and without any advertising for his website or Crown Rights Media embedded into the video then we would have had no problem at all. Hell, we’ve not complained about his uploading of complete discussions to his own site, have we?
What we have a problem with is Sye agreeing not to edit the show or use it commercially, and then going and doing exactly the opposite. If this had been the other way round, Dan would be first in line suggesting that his fellow god-botherers lawyer up, but when the shoe is on a fundie foot, he throws common decency to the wind and cheers on his ‘brothers in Christ’ regardless of how wrong they are.
