Bent Spoon Copyright Act

Urban Shamanism!Wendy Grossman, writing her net.wars column in newswireless this week, says:

“I hazard no guesses as to Geller’s motives when he contacted YouTube, cited the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, claimed copyright in a 13-minute video critiquing his claims, and demanded the video’s removal. But in doing so, he attracted the attention of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which does not take DMCA takedowns lightly.”

Geller may lose.

“In a perfect world, the question of whether Geller actually has paranormal powers would have long since been resolved through scientific testing. But in the end, whether he has such powers or not, he is relatively insignificant. If he has a paranormal ability to affect metal, it seems to be largely useless for anything other than showmanship,”

writes Grossman.

“But shouldn’t it have changed the world?”
