A blast from my past.
I am blessed with a terrible memory, which allows me to get fresh enjoyment from my own work after enough time passes. So it was especially fun to come across a Facebook post in an unfamiliar language with a gif of my animation from 2004: walkbounce-facebook. By some miracle, the original .fla ...

I just googled May 3, because it's my birthday, and found this awesome event that is so perfect for my birthday I almost can't believe it: https://www.defectivebydesign.org/dayagainstdrm/
On Tuesday, May 3, 2016, our global community will come together to celebrate ten years of the International Day Against DRM. We'll be gathering, protesting, making, and sharing, showing the world and the media that we insist on a future without Digital Restrictions Management. Will you join us?

Understood, +Mike Murphy , but Fair Use is a defense for violating copyright. It is the exception to the rule.
I'm with you in that Fair Use is not applied as often as it should be, and that it is attacked by rights holders.
We desperately need to educate everyone (including judges!) on how Fair Use works.
