New UK Parody Law Enacted

More good news  :D

Parody “mash-ups” and spoof videos which piece together clips from films and TV programmes or poke fun at songs will be made legal when a law comes into force later this week.

Currently, artists who put together the comedy videos risk being sued for breaching copyright by using clips from TV shows, films or songs, without consent from the original creator.

But a new EU law coming into effect on Wednesday 1 October, will mean the makers of the satirical videos can only be sued if their version of a work conveys a discriminatory message, or competes with the original,

Soon UK folks will be free to borrow small clips of video and audio to make educational or satirical comment upon without fear of over broad copyright complaints, after so many years it seems they are getting closer to the common sense view of  folks in the real world regarding what is and what is not worthy of making a complain over.
