    At first blush it would appear to be fair use, but there are lot of variables, including length, use and purpose. The closer to parody or academic use the safer you are but the the inverse is true, the closer you are to commercial use the easier is to invalidate Fair Use. Its a grey area of the law, especially for someone without any legal coffers.

    Besides, this is more of an intimidation tactic, to scare Spoocko and others from taking on Disney and their hate filled radio talk shows.

      which is just as valid for fair use as parody or an academic use.

      We shouldn't hedge our bets on fair use.  We should use the law as it is intended to be used and not back down because of attempts at intimidation.

      Most are under 2 minutes.  I haven't had a chance to edit any of them down yet, but I'll work on it this weekend.  The problem becomes context - a 10-15 second clip doesn't really get the point across very well.  We'll see...

      Camille, I'll be hollering for you if we run into trouble.

        I want to squeeze some of Olbermann's excellent Special Comment from Monday night (have the whole thing on Mp3 thanks to the MSNBC podcasts). What I want to do is to contrast Keith with Newt Gingrich and his podcast message on YouTube. Is part of the my new podcast, trying stuff out as far as format and content.

          What app are you using?

          Audacity is great (and free!).  I have Acid Music Studio, Adobe Audition and Magix Music Studio - they all have their pros and cons.

          Any multi-track app should work well.  I'd be happy to help, if I can.  ripley>zencabin.com
