That's rather arbitrary (perhaps illegal?) use of DMCA notices - very counterproductive to remix culture arguments that need all their supporters to hold a hard line nowadays.

Sakura con is a shitty place to go for anime fans and I recommend no one give them business.

I just typed a sentence of inane BS with no justifications and I will state that I have never been to Sakura con. Are you going to take this forum post as a serious threat and request it be deleted because it may be paint Sakura con in a bad light?

While I can understand wishing to control intellectual property I cannot condone take down actions of parodies if your sole operating premise is roughly "we didn't like what they said"

I personally don't care a fig about "Girugameshgate", so hubby and I will still be there.

Lots more important stuff to worry about, imo...

You know... all this GIRUGAMESH talk has giving me an idea for a short clip, like the ones they had in AMV Hell 4 where they parody "Dear Sister" from SNL.

Have some anime character say "Girugamesh" only to get shot right after. Cue music..."mmm What You say..."

Gold. Pure and simple gold. Then the joke would be getting "killed" so to speak.

I'm more inclined to let this brouhaha die, rather than feed into it---I've not been watching any of the remixes, parodies, etc. I think it would behoove everybody to let it fade into the twilight, imo.

Also, that joke's been kind of played out to death, no pun intended... :P

Unfortunately this was done late on Sunday, but I will make a call out next year and hopefully we can get more people in this photo (Possibly during 1 of the showings)
This is me with some of the people who submitted videos to the contest
