  • OTW Secures DMCA Exemption from U.S. Copyright Office

    By Claudia Rebaza on sábado, 27 October 2012 - 1:18de la tarde
    Message type:

    The OTW is proud to announce an important legal victory for fan vidders and other makers of noncommercial remix videos, achieved in conjunction with our friends at the Electronic Frontier Foundation: the Register of Copyrights has recommended that the Librarian of Congress maintain the vidders' exemption from certain provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

    As you probably know, the OTW is committed to the legal position that fanworks, including vids, generally represent "fair use" of their source material under U.S. copyright law. Although this theory has not been tested in the courts yet, it means that vidders ought to be able to use parts of their source in their works without being liable for copyright infringement. However, since the passage of the DMCA, vidders have had an additional legal problem. The DMCA forbids circumvention of access controls to protected works—in other words, ripping DVDs or source purchased from online services (like Amazon Unbox) to get the source to make the vids in the first place. The statute applies even if the ripper was going to put the source to a legal use, like making a vid. So while a copyright owner might not be able to sue a vidder for infringement, it still might be able to sue her just for accessing the source.

    The DMCA is a bad law in general, not only for vidders. Fortunately, every three years, the Librarian of Congress has the responsibility of considering proposed exemptions to the DMCA which are technically necessary for otherwise legitimate uses. This means that individuals whose uses are covered by the exemption will not be legally liable just for circumventing access controls to get the source they need. In the last round, the OTW sought, and won, an exemption for vids. But each exemption must be re-approved each time, and so the OTW had to apply again this year, in the face of industry opposition that was much stronger than before.

    Drafting work was done by the Legal committee, and Francesa Coppa, Tisha Turk, and Rebecca Tushnet appeared before the agency to testify. They were able to point to many examples of vids that hinged on access to high-quality source for their full effect, such as giandujakiss's "It Depends on What You Pay." And, in the end, the OTW once again persuaded the appropriate official to formally recommend renewal of the exemption—keeping the U.S. safe for vidders.

    For those interested you can read the full decision (in PDF format) on the U.S. Copyright Office site or you can see an HTML version at Cryptome.

    The application for the exemption is a great example of a project that benefits all of fandom and which would have been impossible without an organization that let us tap our combined resources. The OTW is grateful to all its members, whose support makes its legal work possible, and to the many others who assisted us!

  • OTW Staff in the News

    Message type:

    These past two months have seen a spike in interviews with OTW staff by various media outlets. Here's a rundown on some of the places online where you can read their discussions about fandom, fanworks, and the OTW.

    • Geek Girl Con did an interview with Anna Zola Miller, who serves on the Open Doors Committee. Anna talks about her increased perception of fandom history, the challenges the project has faced, her favorite archived item, and what she's feeling fannish about.
    • Board member Francesca Coppa wrote Fandom: Open Culture Vs. Closed Platforms at OrgZine which also brings up the work of Open Doors and looked at the importance of fans' ability to keep their work from disappearing from online sites. "The social networks of Web 2.0 are mostly for-profit, commercial enterprises; the web is no longer the loose network of university and government servers it was twenty years ago. Fans used to roll their own code and make their own webpages; now others own the ground beneath their feet. And the priorities of these businesses may or may not be the priorities of fans."
    • Rebecca Tushnet discussed the legality of fanworks with Lauren Davis at io9 which formed the basis of a lengthy piece on this issue, required reading for anyone wanting to debate the topic, and sporting a nifty piece of fan art to boot.
    • Development & Membership staffer Aja Romano is delivering some excellent discussions of fandoms and fannish activities over at The Daily Dot. A notable recent piece provided recs to online sites for people wanting to find the next Fifty Shades of Grey, a badly needed guide if some of the rec lists appearing in the media over this summer are anything to go by.
    • Francesca Coppa and Tisha Turk of the OTW's Vidding Committee were the guests on talk show Hearsay Culture on KZSU-FM, Stanford, 90.1 FM, a show which focuses on the intersection of technology and society. They discussed their personal histories in vidding, what transformative works and vids are, the work of the OTW, and what our legal team's effort to secure a DMCA exemption for remixing is all about. Asked what they want the typical non-vidder to do, they exhort listeners to both know their rights and exercise them. (No transcript available).
  • Test Suite of Fair Use Vids: Image Gallery II: Comparison Still Frames

    The following image files are a side by side comparison of the Star Trek stills made by Tisha Turk from ripped DVD footage (shown at the June 4, 2012 hearing at the Library of Congress in Washington DC) with stills provided to us by the DVD CCA on July 25, 2012 made from screencaptured footage. The screencaptured stills were provided to the Library of Congress to support the argument that screencaptured footage is adequate for vidders and noncommercial remixers. We believe that the below side by side comparison shows that they are not.

    While the stills taken from the DVD CCA's .mpg are not as pixellated as those taken from the .avi Tisha Turk made (see our previous Image Gallery), they have other problems; note the lack of detail, the blurriness, the washed-out color, and the incorrect aspect ratio. But even if the stills were of excellent quality, the file that they are taken from is still an MPEG file not meant for editing; that is, the screencapturing process that produced the captured stills below produces a file that is not suitable for video editing.

    Legal chair Rebecca Tushnet and Vidding committee members Francesca Coppa and Tisha Turk testified at the Library of Congress's Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) hearings on June 4, 2012 in favor of a renewal and expansion of the DMCA exemption for Noncommercial Remixers (like vidders and other fan video makers.) Rebecca Tushnet has been liveblogging all the hearings, including the OTW's testimony, and Tisha Turk is putting her notes and recollections online as well.

  • Test Suite of Fair Use Vids: Image Gallery

    Below are a series of comparative images demonstrating quality differences between DVD-ripped and screen captured source. All images were made from the opening scene of the 2009 Star Trek reboot movie; captures were made with the Replay Video Capture software demonstrated at the Library of Congress "tech day" hearings.

    You may notice that the first of these images — the captured image of Captain Robau (as seen in the top half of Image A) — is not bad; in fact, screen capture software works all right for low-motion, low-contrast shots (for example, of people standing still or just talking).

    However, as we see in the top half of Image B, capture software works poorly in bright light or for high contrast shots. Image B is essentially the same static shot as in Image A, but it comes after an explosion — a sudden flash of bright light — and pixellation of the image is immediately evident.

    Similarly, Image C shows the same footage cropped and resized: a common technique to change the composition of or emphasis in a the frame, and further degradation is evident.

    Images D through I below also show the loss of quality incurred capturing clips in scenes with more contrast or internal movement.

    So in a typical movie, very few captured frames would have even the barely acceptable quality that we see in Image A. (And vidders and other fan remixers tend not to use static shots of people talking in any case; in fact, to do so is a sign of inexperience and derided by vid critics with slang terms like "Talky-Face" or "Lip Flap." )
