My view is that KATG is important and every other podcast is shit. Maybe that's not enlightened.

It's cute that Soccergirl does her thing and thinks it's important, but let's be honest: Podcasts are fucking pathetic. This whole thing is a sinking ship, and when it's gone KATG is gonna be the only talk radio survivor that's worth a damn. Just KATG, and maybe some tech shows. Prove me wrong, Podosphere, but putting the means of production in the hands of the most annoying-to-listen-to demographic on the planet was never a great plan to begin with.

So with that in mind, I'm sure that whatever else was on that tape was not as cool as Brolo. Soccergirl at Dragoncon! Wow! Who can imagine the wonders?

But even without the heavy bias, ncfcyank was right about mailing the tape. Send it off, we send it back, you've got your precious tape back in like three days. Shouldn't have been such a big deal.

I'm dreadfully confused here.

When Keith says "your precious podcasting community" who's "your"?

Us forums trolls? Adam Curry? Soccergirl?

I can't figure out if I'm helping the show, enjoying the banter or just fueling my own anger.

Fucking hell Mallet, do you want a community or what?

I think everyone is missing the point. It's not about blaming someone, but rather coming up with a solution.

Where is Soccer Girl located? There must be someone near her who could copy the tape. I've never messed with digital video, but could someone with another DV cam just record from the output on her cam to make a duplicate. Would there be a lot of degradation in quality? If so, I'd imagine there's someone with a decent computer and could copy it that way.

If she's not willing to part with the tape, find someone close to her that can make a copy and send it to Keith.

There's always an amount of digital "jitter" when making a copy, but for 1st to 2nd gen, it's negligible.

Uh.... yeah. All those willing to go to Soccergirl's house to get the tape raise you hand.




Ok, now we have a different problem.

Jack, stop acting like a fag. I was just saying that there might be someone close by who may be willing to lend a hand. Bitching about the situation isn't going to change it. Either someone can step up and help out, or Keith, Chemda, Matt, or Brolo will have to drive on up to Germantown, NY to get it.

Anyone else have a better solution?

There is a simple solution.
Wait until Soccergirl gets around to it.

SG was filming on her camera, therefore legally the intellectual copyright on the content of the tape is hers,
regardless of who owns the tape.
I'm sure she would have given the tape over if asked before she left.
She has stated that she will pass it on when it is feasible.

SG doesn't get paid a cent to do her podcast, she works as a librarian (archivist).
She relies on donations from fans to update her equipment but mostly she pays for it out of her own pocket.
She is fan of KATG and Brolo and gives them a lot of cross promotion.
Give the girl a break.

Maybe next time K&C will bring their own tape, their own camera, and pay someone to record it, or get Gumby or some other lovestruck fan to do it for them.

I like when people with 3000 posts dig on the lovestruck fans. It tickles me.

I read the original forum posting twice, then went back and listened to the show again, because I wasn't sure I had the scenario correct.

Because Soccergirl shot all the footage, she owns the copyright to it. The tape may be yours but the footage on it is hers. (Ownership of the recording equipment is neither here or there, btw)

Morally, you may feel wronged, because of what you verbally agreed, but legally she is on firm ground.

On the show, Chemda spoke with typical common sense, the smart move is to pay a sum of money/have a contract so that the intellectual property transfers to you - rather than defaulting to the guy/girl holding the camera.
