The pre-credits sequence from the latest Brave and the Bold

I'm not sure if it's ever right to apologise to The Pruitts of Southampton, but

The episode itself "Sword of the Atom", sees the first appearance of Ray Palmer as the Atom in B&tB, but let's just say that Ryan Choi (RIP :( ) gets a much better end to his career as the Atom than his comic counterpart, but to say more would spoil too much.

And for legality, a couple of memorable Aquaman covers;

I love the exuberance of this one....

Can't imagine why this one appeals to me... ;)

(I love the fact it's an invese drowning!)

And this one, for the sheer WTF? of it!

Yes. I have no regrets at all watching BATB where ever I can find it. See, I used to record Batman: The Animated Series back in the nineties on this box called a "video tape recorder", and it stored television signals on something called a "VHS cassette". Then I could watch them again whenever. From what I understand of you, star, you might have been around to know what these things were? For most of the others around here who were born in the nineties, it's kind of like a primitive TiVo. Anyway, today I own the entire run on DVD, and Justice League, and every movie Timm produced, and Batman Beyond came out with a complete set a little while ago... As soon as I saw the Music Meister, I decided that I will have to buy the BATB complete box set as soon as it hits the shelves. So I'm ... kind of? ... old-fashioned, I don't download and store any songs, movies, or comics anywhere. For what that's worth.

Sounds like your husband has an infringement lawsuit waiting to happen, the settle out of court arrangement alone might be substantial. Come at me, bro!

Yeah you guessed it, I guessed it - I imagine the married part gave me away - I vaguely remember the VHS... In fact, I remember the walk on the moon, RFK's and MLK's shootings, the Draft... so I was around for 8 tracks, Beta, home movies, slides of Grandma on the Riviera...

I'm trying making the point that the artist should be paid for their work, doesn't that seem fair? When I was still working, I got paid.

In the US, it is NOT a copyright infringement by the way to use a recording device to record a show and archive it for later use in a private home (or even in a more public one, say a communal situation like a dormitory or nursing home) as long as there is no admission charged (three decades ago when I went to one of those silly little Ivy League institutions we would charge for snacks though... we were evil capitalists!)

But YouTube is different, and it's the prerelease stuff that is the concern because it hasn't been broadcast yet, so the ability to recoup the production costs and to compensate the people who fronted all that money could be impacted. In this case, potentially people watch it on YouTube won't watch it on Cartoon Network, so the ratings will be down. (Again, operative term being potentially) If the rating are lower, the network has to charge less to the advertisers. Therefore, revenue is down, and the network has to order either less or cheaper shows (cheaper shows: read (shudder) reality shows and game shows)

Do I have any idea the amount of the impact, if any? No. Could I figure it out if I had the data? Damn straight.

I happen to have already bought part I and part II of the first season of BATB on their release dates. I do buy and store digital films, TV shows and music through Amazon.

And old-fashioned? I guess I was referring to it as an issue of traditional values. How is the music industry dealing with piracy? They are imbedding silent digital fingerprinting so that when songs (or even snippets of music) are played on the radio or TV or in movies or released with a DVD or where ever, that they can recover more of the fee due to them. And whether that will end up being cost effective is yet to be seen...

Oh, I should have said that you're absolutely right. I was just trying to change, however slightly, your opinion of me as an abhorrent miscreant. Warner Animation will receive payment from me, the advertisers pay the network. The advertisers lose my eyeballs on their stuff, but I am an incorrigible zapper anyway. In short, I just don't feel too bad because nothing is different than if I watch it on the network, and YouTube could pull it right now, leaving me with nothing but a memory until the box set is released. Still, definitely over the line and I know it.

Since the "complete series box set" often has a few (sometimes a lot) of extras, I forego the season-at-a-time because it pains me to either buy them twice or miss out on stuff.

Heh, the eight-track.

Yes, I might have waited for the complete box set, but I have an eight year old that does not have my hard-won patience.

So Warner Brothers will get even more of my money (which ironically comes from another multimedia company and an indirect competitor - less of a direct competitor since their split with Time).

I remember arguing with my roommate Freshman year over eight tracks versus cassettes... hehe I won. Not that I didn't lose soon after with those laser discs, but it took a while...
