NEWS: Port Chuck, YouTube, Wally Kurth, Michael Muhney

Copyrighted videos on YouTube actually earning revenue
Last month, a YouTube user, TomR35, uploaded a clip from the AMC series MAD MEN in which Don Draper makes a heartfelt speech about the importance of nostalgia in advertising. Viewers wouldn’t notice, but that clip also makes an important point about modern advertising — YouTube is an increasingly fruitful place for advertisers.

In the past, Lions Gate, which owns the rights to the MAD MEN clip, might have requested that TomR35’s version be taken down. But it has decided to leave clips like this up, and in return, YouTube runs ads with the video and splits the revenue with Lions Gate.

  1. Congratulations to Wally Kurth on being honored in his hometown of Montana. I have seen 'Class C' several times and I highly recommend it to everyone.
