Can I have some examples of "FUN" videos that are not made by Suberunker?
Or do I have to be suberunker to enter "FUN"

Because if that's what it takes I'll do it.

LOL, I just mentioned those as obvious examples. Another good one would be an entry that was in the comedy category last year, "YTMND AMV - Fad of Princely Caliber" by Drew Briscoe.

AX will benefit greatly with Todd's (Dr. Dinosaur's) help. :mrgreen:

I would say fun would be like amv hell type videos and funny story videos.

Not copyrighted, trademarked. As far as I'm aware, there are four cons on the "official" Iron Editor™ circuit: Anime Central, Otakon, Anime Weekend Atlanta, and AnimeUSA. It's been that way for a few years now, though I don't know exactly when they got the trademark.

That Drew Briscoe is a pretty nifty editor. Worked on VG5 we did. God bless Mr. Briscoe.

As an editor, unless the music aspect of a video is unencumbered by traditional copyright, you can't actually consent to rule #7. You lack the power to grant those things unconditionally on the behalf of others.

Lawyers had us put it in several years ago. It has been there since long before I took over the contest. Its to cover our butts. The music aspect is covered by the ascap fees we pay every year anyway.
