“For 3 years you YouTubers have been ripping us off,” begins a recent Monty Python announcement “taking tens of thousands of our videos and putting them on YouTube.”
“Rather than firing off endless rounds of cease and desist letters,” writes Laughing Squid, “the Pythons have decided to tackle the problem by creating their own YouTube channel. The Monty Python Channel offers high quality versions of classic skits, new interviews, and rare archival footage. Of course it’s all free, but the guys encourage you to click the links to buy their dvds, shirts, etc.”
I’m watching stuff and clicking on links, so deep is my love for Monty Python. I suspect I’m not the only one.
