That definitely is the trailer from Universe 2. I’m not sure if you could really count that as being illegal, or a breach of copyright, since the trailer is readily available for download from Syko’s website (I could be wrong though).
It’d be better if they actually showed the part with Syko’s contact information, so people could actually buy the dvd if they were interested.
“Extreme Unicycle Action! Sounds dumb…but watch and be awed”
I think its illegal if you are making money off someone else’s copyrighted material. Heavy.com is making money from the advertising, and they use that video to draw people to the advertising, so I’d say it’s illegal.
I think while illeagal it could be alot worse, at least they have the sounds dumb buy be awed, Heavy.com is a fairly big site as far as traffic goes, I’ve seen alot of clips from it and know alot of other people that frequent the sight fairly regularly who usually are not interested in unicycling.
Dan is really the only one who has a say if it should be taken down or not, me I’m just glad its good exposure rather than negitive.
And hey, its only the trailer, footage from the rest of the movie would be alot worse.
personally i would just be pissed that the edited the video… i mean they cut the beginning and the end… that has to be a breach of copy right law… seems unfair that they can do that… i mean it’s all good if it’s adversiting… but cutting it like that is just mean!
