Satya's blog - WSJ on tsunami video blogging

Jan 05 2005 17:33 WSJ on tsunami video blogging
Manish has a link to the WSJ's Video Blogs Break Out With Tsunami Scenes article, which talks about how bloggers and others hosted tsunami videos and almost wiped out their own sites in the resulting stampede for downloads. They don't know that attempts were made -- successfully -- to provide torrent feeds of some of the videos.

The article also mentions that "Bloggers don't charge for access, but they haven't been paying for copyrighted footage, either." Some Swedish people who shot and then released the Phuket video. A Norwegian newspaper (Dagbladet, accent marks extra) editor said he wasn't surprised that bloggers took the video without paying, and that he expects that to happen with the Internet. I think that's cool of him.
