We need to support him and take a stand because BIG MEDIA/ENTERTAINMENT COMPANIES CAN’T START DICTATING WHAT CONTENT THEY FEEL IS SUITABLE TO BE PRODUCED
I just want to talk about this because I am really fucking pissed. If you don’t know what’s happening, Shane Dawson’s parody of “Blank Space” was taken down last week. YouTube and Sony (Taylor Swift’s Producers) are saying it’s because the song is copywritten. However, the Shane’s song is not copywritten because it is A PARODY. According to law.com a parody is “the humorous use of an existing song, play, or writing which changes the words to give farcical and ironic meaning.” SHANE’S VIDEO IS NOT A COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. The fact that he has to fight this or delete the video is total bullshit.
Here’s a pic of Shane crying when he first saw the set for his (filmed!) podcast, Shane and Friends. You can watch it from the Fullscreen website OR get the Fullscreen app and with both you get a 30 day free trial :)
