Say the same for lots of garbage content on Aminet or on the net. Let's delete them too. "Hey your .med sounds really bad, let's pack your things and leave!" , "What a bad looking wallpaper, leave this community at once!"
Imagine you are a journalist reviewing Aminet software. Do you just list every item, review it and give them 5 stars for effort?
Imagine what the magazine industry would be like if they did not publish "50 World's Stupidest Movie Moments" or "Top 10 Crappiest Videogames". They would have nothing to say month to month, it is practically the bedrock of the industry.
Sometimes you have to point out negative aspects of things, and sometimes it is as important and entertaining as the media itself being criticised.
I agree about the copyright issue - I totally skipped it- and would have reuploaded it with a different kind of music.
Indeed. To be honest, the guy who wrote the music does not care, but I am sure YouTube has a strict policy on copyrighted material. If it was not part of the deals they have just made with EMI and so on, it would have been taken off the site.
If you want to publish a movie advertising MorphOS, I made a couple of suggestions; one, is to use some interesting content. Not a slideshow of "MediaLogger" and "CPUstat". Two, is to use the right URL for the product, it is not much worth telling people they should drink Coca Cola and sending them to the Pepsi website. Three, there are reams of public domain music and imagery on the internet to spice it up.
Sorry that I've caused tension.
The tension caused is only in your reaction to some harmless commentary on what *I* think you did wrong with your video. I don't think you could say they are not valid criticisms, and you did ask for comments.
Try again. I am sure you are capable of much better.
