Above is a clip from last Wednesday's episode of The Insider that Tracie spotted and snagged for me. Though they've added some typical tabloid-TV sparkle wipes, they play the first 20 seconds of my Everything you need to know about Mariah Carey on HSN video from last week. The clips and cuts are identical. I didn't see this episode's credits, so for all I know they maybe said something about the source of the video coming from YouTube (in this clip it sure doesn't seem like they're selling the montage of Mariah talking about her pregnancy as anything but their own). Whatever. Obviously, this happens. And then what happens next is I post about it. It's too much part of the natural order of things to get upset at this point. I'm laughing, really I am.
(And in a weird way, their taking a 20 second clip counts as fair use, I guess, credited or not. Right?)
