Vanity - 2016 - No Longer on Youtube - Ethics?
youtube.com video ^ | September 21, 2012

The Movie 2016 was discovered hidden on youtube and now LionsGate has had Youtube pull it. Did viewers this morning conclude this was an approved posting? Fine to share the link. Really? Any hypocrisy? Unethical?

Stealing, maybe? It's still in theaters.

This had to be a ripoff as the movie is not scheduled to be released on DVD until October. Even then it would still be a ripoff.

I saw it when I logged on Facebook this morning. I’m glad I didn’t wait to watch it since it has been pulled. Must see viewing for EVERYONE. Wow. Just wow.

Yeah, I looked for it and found that they pulled it.

Here are clips with an interview on Glenn Beck. 16 minutes.

The movie cost money to make. They don’t get paid unless you go see it. Posting it on YouTube deprives them of that income.

See: copyright law.

I saw it before they pulled it too, and yeah,...WOW!

I pride myself on knowing a lot about Obama and how he is intent on destroying America, but this movie literally gave me chills. He is even worse than I thought. I wish every American could see this.

Stealing is not what the “Free” in free enterprise is all about.

We all get upset about the able bodied moochers and looters who want to take the wealth and work product of others - don’t we?

Well I tried to see where I could pre-order the movie in Canada...but it seems none of our online retailers even list it, not even Amazon, even though the Amazon US site does...so I am just wearing my eye patch and grabbing a version now, when and if it does become available I will buy it also...this unfortunately is the only way to get some things, that we are not shown on TV here or we cannot buy.

Like many of you, I also tried to relocate the video on YouTube. Couldn’t find it today but DID get to view it in full yesterday. What a great, but very scary explanation of what is really happening in our country and around the world. Without a doubt OBUMMER NEEDS TO BE STOPPED.

Wish I would have copied it andhopefully someone out there has and will share it.

Really? The conservative folks at Free Republic are advocating stealing.

Is that a conservative value?

I’m just teasing the mods. I do it often.

But yeah. There are people here who advocate stealing. That attack your conservative, Christian values.

I was getting beaten severely yesterday on another thread. Apparently I’m nothing more than a stupid immature obama lover who will rejoice in the destruction of America.

They can say what they want. Treat me any way they want.

In my opinion they are sychophantic fools.

I am standing my ground.

I personally believe this country is past fixing.

And it is going to end badly.

And no, I didn’t watch the movie, or download it. I don’t want a copy.

What can it tell me I don’t already know?

The entity that uploaded it was Townhall.com/tipsheet, so it seemed like a legitimate leaking of the video to maybe create a viral buzz.
