Updated 4-20: Hurlbert spoof was blocked by YouTube this morning. This is it’s own legal story. Tech Crunch has excellent coverage, including use of special software YT provides to all TV channels, movie producers, etc. Just for the record, it was at 1,934 when blocked this a.m. I was already getting antsy about producing another video, so I think a brand new spoof about another candidate will be popping up soon. We are seeking permission from Constantin Films, the producer of the Downfall film in Germany to continue to post the video on YouTube, since as political parody it falls under the “fair use” exemption required by the First Amendment and the DCMA
In this saga, Kobe DA and Colo. state senate candidate Mark Hurlbert-and GOP boss Dick Wadhams as well, are lampooned for thinking such a RINO would win in 2010. The video mocks Hurlbert as a RINO, ignorant about the issues and dependent upon an overburdened Hitler for assistance. In the meantime, I’m seeing if this works:
Since the video was produced on February 25, Hitlers fears turned out to be even worse than he imagined, as Hurlbert as shown himself to be a lackluster campaigner and fundraiser.
