    Link: Remember That Louis CK Video Last Week? - Here`s how it sold. Cynics be damned, this is how capitalism should work.

    @fancylad
    "See?!"

    So taking a risk and making a profit from it is justification for violating copyright?

    Does that mean i-am-bored will also donate a quarter of their proceeds from hosting the video to a charity?

    @MrPeabody

    It didn`t violate copyright laws. Read the article, he specifically said he didn`t put any copyright bullpoo on it, and just asked people not to distribute it. If anything, it only violates morals, and a request.

    "It didn`t violate copyright laws."

    Then why did Louis CK have it removed from YouTube due to a copyright violation?

    @OldOllie--Yes anymore. He only kept $200,000 of the $1 million he made. And a good chunk of that is going toward bills and child-expenses.

    I don`t know what YOU think the 1% is, but $200,000 is not enough to get you there.

    FURTHERMORE, the entire point of the OWS movement was to argue against the unfair advantages given to the 1% and the ways that they abuse the system. Louis CK is clearly not abusing the system, but rather giving back to the people who helped produce the product as well as those in need. I call that fair play.

    This is simple i worked for a internet "Get rich" company for afew years and profited over 10 million dollars in just 2 years for selling some bullpoo product for $5. People will spend $5 on anything if it gives them some sort of product, especially in North America, you create a product for $5 and sell it on the internet there are definitly going to be buyers.
