I can embed it here and embed it on my blog,

you can embed it but not host it

google has a deal with all the major music owners

so google now owns the film

it is in the 20,000 word google contract many of you guys have signed

I have a friend who is a corporate lawyer

she read the google contract - she said that I had given them permission to come into my house and take my babies

she was only half joking

the music on my proper films has come from bands I know personally or from places where you buy tracks for about $20 a time - for a license of up to 50,000 downloads or copies with a video - and I can assure you I will never reach those numbers on sailing films

Google are still making a handsom profit on the trucking films I made five years ago


the thread, in my case, should really be called "losing money with your sailing blog"
