Everyone's a Critic: Copyright Considerations for YouTube and Twitch Reaction Videos (Part II)

In Part I of this blog post, I explained what a reaction video is, how it could constitute copyright infringement under the Copyright Act, and how the possible legal exception for “criticism” or “review” might apply to a reaction video. In Part II of this blog post, I further analyze this exception through both a Canadian and U.S. legal lens (no pun intended). Canadian and U.S. Perspectives on Criticism and Fair Use/Fair Dealing Support for the position that a reaction video would be “criticism” or “review” under the Copyright Act is that a reaction video has already been the subject of a high-profile U.S. court case recognizing it as criticism. In fact, the court actually went as far as to recognize a reaction video as falling under the U.S.’ similar (but not parallel) “fair use” exception for copyright infringement. In Hosseinzadeh v. Klein, a 2017 decision of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, the plaintiff, YouTuber Matt Hosseinzadeh (MattHossZone) sued Ethan and Hila Klein (h3h3productrions) for creating a reaction video about one of his amateur comedic short films. In the video, the Kleins recorded themselves heavily criticizing and mocking the video’s storyline and dialogue.…

Spawn: they confirm the series of detectives Sam and Twitch – Tomatazos

With all the products that Marvel Y DC Currently pitching about their superheroes, audiences sometimes forget that comic book and graphic novel adaptations are nothing new. However, it is true that in recent years these versions have been dignified in a very special way. Beyond the strangeness and the constant need to convince an uninformed viewer, comic book titles are more accessible and popular than ever. That is why it is not at all strange that this is the perfect time for remakes of adaptations that at the time could not fit. Subscribe here to Disney Plus Although not everything has worked well, as with the new version of Hellboy – 24%, that does not take away the excitement of certain projects already promised, such as Spawn. Spawn is a comic created by Todd McFarlane that tells how Albert Simmons returns from hell itself thanks to a deal with the devil that turns him into a Hellspawn and gives him great powers. The story had already been adapted to the cinema in 1997, directed by Mark AZ Dippé and starring Michael Jai White, but it was a failure among specialized critics and fans who highlighted the lack of violence and…

How to watch movies with your friends online

You don't need to be living amid a global pandemic or ~unprecidented times~ to see the appeal of a virtual watch party. It's all the fun of a movie night with friends, except you don't have to leave the comfort of your own couch or bed, and all the snacks are yours for the monching. You're basically getting the best of both worlds, to quote the great philosopher Hannah Montana. Watching a movie together while apart was once a precarious dance of devices that involved linking up over a group text or Skype call while you all tried to press "Play" on "3, 2, 1" (and god forbid anyone needs a bathroom break). Not so much anymore, though. Several major streaming services rolled out group watch features in the thick of the COVID-19 restrictions that forced everyone to isolate indoors, and a handful of third-party tools with screensharing, video-syncing, and chat capabilities have picked up the slack for those that haven't. Soon you'll even be able to watch movies together on FaceTime thanks to a new watch party feature for Apple called SharePlay, which is coming to iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey later this year.

ShackStream: Shack Air “Land of Fire and Ice” Bush Trip

Join us as Shack Air fires up the recently released Piper PA-28R Turbo IV by Just Flight for a frigid bush trip around Iceland. It's time for us to return to Shack Air this evening on the Shacknews Twitch channel as we head out to fulfill a dedicated viewer's purchased flight. Shacknews' own Bill Lavoy  used his Shack Points to request a bush flight somewhere in the desolate North. This presents an opportunity to not only check out Audaxxx's Land of Fire and Ice bush trip, but also to try out a brand-new aircraft. Our choice of aircraft today is the Piper PA-28R Turbo IV created by Just Flight for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. The PA-28R Turbo Arrow III and Arrow IV are four-seater, turbocharged piston-engine aircraft equipped with a retractable tricycle landing gear and constant-speed propeller – ideal for touring and instrument training. This feisty little turbo pro has plenty of power to keep us nice and warm over the southern coast of Iceland as we enjoy the scenery and go sight-seeing. We hope that you'll join us at 6 p.m. PT on our Twitch channel. Don't forget that you too can purchase future flight destinations with Shack Points which…
