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"
