Hey, I just bought the Mike Meyers edition of the SNL Best Of series (or called somtheing like that) DVD for $5 about Xmas and it includes that piece as well as a Ronnie Wood piece which is not as funny,
Check your Targets and Walmarts, it may still be out there

This in no way, shape or form falls under "fair use".
An example of "fair use" would be taping a cd you purchased so you could listen to the tape in your car.
Posting on YouTube is a whole other kettle of fish--that is why when they "pull" videos they refer to the fact that is "copyrighted" and the holder of the copyright "requested" (really demanded) that it be taken down.
Suppose a tv news story about superbowl commercials uses a few seconds of an ad in a segment... this would be considered a "fair use" of the copyrighted ad. The news organization may wish to furher protect itself by putting "Courtesy Pepsi" on the screen. Sometimes, the insulation against infringement allegation goes even further: The graphics for the news story about Superbowl ads on tv might have the commercials themselves inserted into a graphic of a tv screen, for example.
Well, thanks--I would prefer to be wrong on this since I have seen things on YouTube I would never see anywhere else.
If someone took one of your drawings and put it on their profit-generating web site you might not placated by the fact they acknowledge that you drew it---you might want to see some financial benefit from it,or have the right to decide who can use it; afterall it is your creation and someone w/o your permission is making money from it and/or using it w/o your permission. Perhaps not the best analogy, but I think you get the idea.
As I said, I love that clip and hope it stays up. Personally I think the networks are being kill-joys about the whole thing, but I suppose that is easy for me to say since I have no responsibility to their bottom line or shareholders.
Jimmy Fallon kind of pissed me off. I mean he was funny sometimes, but a) he laughed out loud or goofed off out of character in nearly every skit b)he was too derivative of Adam Sandler c) he always ended up making out with every hot actress host who appeared on the show d) it pretty much became the Jimmy Fallon Show after Will Ferrel left - which is when I stopped watching it after so many years.
Is it funny now again, or is it still a bunch of PC no-namers?
