Hitler Explains Why RIM Matters
UPDATE: Now I'm ticked! The video below, and all other Hitler "Downfall" parodies, have been pulled from YouTube. The removal comes per a takedown demand issued by the film's owner Constantin Films, claiming the videos infringed on the copyright. Boo! Hiss!
I am not an IP attorney, so this is not legal advice, but it seems to me that these videos are fair use of copyrighted material. What's more, Constantin Films clearly does not understand social media—I added Downfall to my Netflix queue because of these parodies. I otherwise never would have heard of the film. Constantin Films: THESE VIDEOS ARE HELPING YOU! DUH.
Then again, this takedown dustup is creating even more publicity...hmmm...
ORIGINAL POST: Yesterday, on the e-Disclosure Information Project blog, Chris Dale's post Hitler and Cloud Computing Security gives us a super discovery-related entry in the crowded and growing "Hitler and..." series of spoofs. I can't get enough of these videos and was giddy <!-- That's right, I said giddy. I'm easily amused. --> to find a related gem on YouTube just days ago, in which Hitler laments the exclusion of records management from the discovery process. Brilliant.
