So that copyright video was crazy.. right?
I learned a new word though. So "orphan works" are works under copyright, but whose copyright protector is difficult or impossible to catch. true story.
so thanks wikipedia.
Once I was on the activities committee in a college ward in Oregon. We wanted to watch a disney movie for an activity, but first it was my task to get permission. That was ridiculous, especially without any resources. Somehow i managed to email one of the producers who was like "yeah of course, i mean, make sure you tell everyone it was a disney movie" so i did. A lot of work, man.


  1. I agree- I couldn't follow that video at all!

  2. Wow that's crazy that you had to do that! And then you did all that work for such a simple response of sure go ahead. Haha. That's cool that you got a producers email though, i guess.

  3. That is really good to know- So technically would I need to get permission before I show movies for church activities or as long as I say it is Disney will that count?

  4. I know that movie was a little hard to follow but I did learn a lot from it. I cannot believe you had to ask permission! Props to you for being able to seek out someone who you could ask!
