Brilliant, and yet so very annoying! I must not have quick enough neurons to process the quickly changing images, voices, and background sounds while simultaneously trying to string together the words. Still, the idea is really really fun.
I had the best mental image of Walt Disney execs sweating while try to come up with appropriate wordings for take-down notices and then ending up in tears. If anything, the opening Disney logo/melody is the most vulnerable I think.
If Disney has any sense, they’ll ignore it entirely. Does the logo have commercial value on its own? I haven’t heard of many people buying it…and parody/commentary are normally fair use. Otherwise, since no clip is more than two or three seconds out of 90-minute films, and since lawyers/law professors are clearly behind this…
And if automated snoopers cause takedowns, I could see a number of groups being On The Case, because this smacks of centrally-protected fair use. It will be interesting to watch.
