Five Finger Discount on Copyrighted Goods

WorldChanging had this article on January 12th about the web site MyHeavy.

More specifically, the article was geared towards allegations that MyHeavy had re-encoded videos from well known video bloggers, added ads to them, and hosted them on their site.

It doesn't look like they've stopped. A quick search for "Rocketboom" produced this video from Dec. 5th.

The Pitch

Tonight @ 6:00 PM in DBH 226, I'll be recruiting from JMC163 for the SJSU Technology & Emerging Media club. Essentially, this is also my pitch for teaching new media and web integration in higher education.

The class is being taught by Steve Sloan again.
(Disclosure: Steve is also going to be the club's faculty advisor.)

I'm really excited about the prospect of creating connections for students in this brand new field. I hope everyone is as well.

REMINDER: The second club meeting will take place tomorrow at 4:00 PM in the Academic Success Center's conference room. It's open to any and all that are interested.
