FFX Fanvid: "Crash and Burn" Auron/Lulu


Giftvid for trekqueen, as I nattered at more length in the initial posting on aulu .

"Crash and Burn" -- an Auron/Lulu fanvid

Music is "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence; here's the lyrics in a popup window in case you want to follow along.

I wish my conscience would stop poking me about fanvids. Square-enix doesn't seem to mind 'em, but... but.. copyright, yeah. (Sung to the tune of "Elephants, yeah.")  On the other hand, the only reason I bought this album (Fallen) was because I fell in love with the soundtrack of another AMV, and most of my music purchases in the last 2 years have been prompted by fanvid soundtracks.

I have to go out and eat breakfast now, but remind me to tell you about how fan-produced manga in Japan works. There's an entire industry of fan work over there that would cause a US copyright lawyer's heart to stop. It's not only tolerated, it's encouraged, so I really, really don't think you have anything to worry about.

I'm not too worried about the video part, because I know Square is aware of and encourages fan work. It's the soundtrack that's the problem.

The goody two shoes part of me says, "As long as the folks who made it don't mind, it's fine, but you need permiss."

The chaotic good/lazy part of me says, "As long as you give proper credit, aren't making money off of it, and may possibly contribute to them monetarily by giving their stuff free advertising, it's not too bad." But then the copyright issue comes in.

Obviously I'm saying "screw it" or I wouldn't be posting it, but I've got a few corners of conscience that go "ping."
