After the shocking suspension of Ketinoa's account on Youtube due to the claiming of some very well known High Powers-(which has caused a tremendous reaction within the ballet community viewers)-now it is official. Paradiselost89, another GREAT resource for ballet clips, has also been suspended. The Powers that Be are very likely to have been involved in this action again. This situation is getting out of proportion. WHAT DO THIS PEOPLE WANT?!?!-(the Powers, I mean...) :wub: .

The Powers very likely involved are the ones that hold the reproduction and display rights to the visual material quoted. They are asserting their right to determine where and how their property is to be shown. It's a grey area of copyright law, but the owners are pretty well supported for claiming the right to have an unauthorized posting taken down. Some don't mind; they may feel that any use of their video is cheap advertising!

Yeah, yeah, I know...rights and claims and holdings and determinations and copyrights and laws and authorizations and yes, [size=4]The Powers That Be...[/size] :wub:
Thank God I was able to repeatedly watch and enjoy Apollo, Theme and Variations and Waltz Academy in a time and place were such issues were largely and purposely ignored... :lol:

Is it known who are these "Powers that be"., are they the company making or releasing the DVD/Video the clips are taken from. It seems nowadays that on many of the recently released DVD's they have a code which prevents any use of the product other than playing it on a home DVD player.
You cannot even add it to your library on your Computers Media Player. Seems that the entertainment industry will go to great lengths to protect their copyright. This is very short sighted to me, as I often buy new DVD's I have seen previewed on
YouTube or the media.


Surely if the clips have been filmed by the people who subscribe to YouTube they cannot be touched. Unless of course it is the actual Company or dancers that have been filmed. In truth it is a breach of copyright to even film a live performance without permission.

My daughter always instills in me, only use clipps that are searched using the term Official. ( i.e. Official Aurelie Dupont Sleeping Beauty) Whether this is true or not I do not know.

Are there any official clips? All the clips of Dupont's Beauty that I've seen have been ripped from the DVD. I know they're promo videos from certain companies promoting different programs, but they tend to have very little actual dancing, IMO.

Some of the dancers have official accounts associated with their official websites (e.g. Dorothee Gilbert, Alessio Carbone), but I still wonder about the copyrights behind those videos. There was a clip of Gilbert dancing Tschai Pas and that video has been deleted -- although last I checked it was still on her website ;)

:)[I do not know how correct this information was, except my Daughter is always warning me about using clips from YouTube on Facebook and other situations, such as establishing Playlist on the site. I cannot help wondering if she is being extra protective, and scare mongering. As most clips have been illegally used/podted without application to the copyright holder. (She is an Author and is quite keyed up with copyright) However when she put in the term "Official Aurelie Dupont video's. when discussing the subject with me. Only professionally recorded items came up. Not privately filmed ones. (Which can still be in breach of copyright if shot from the auditorium.)
She insists you can be prosecuted for using YouTube video's. But in that case why do they put links to share with other sites on their clips? Has anyone got further clearer information please?

There's no proof of the reasons why these channels were taken down, but it's obvious who is at the root of the reason why the Suzanne Farrell Ballet's performance are not available to watch in the Millennium Stage archive. I watched them live on my computer at the time, but when I went back today I found this next to the company's entries: "This performance is not available for viewing." This seems very shortsighted, especially among the wealth of other companies, groups and artists who allow their performance to be viewed in the archives.

I wonder if Dale is thinking of the recent performances on 19th and 20th September, 2009? I was in the theatre both times, so I would be glad to learn there was some accommodation for those who couldn't be, besides the projections within the Kennedy Center itself I heard about. (I'd like to know what the editing quality was like, too; sitting behind one of the cameras on the 19th, I could be pretty sure there weren't any "partials" -- shots of only a partial view of the performer's body -- being taken by that one.)

But the older archive video of the 23rd February 2007 program, running about 41 minutes, still plays.

Yes, Jack, I am talking about the recent September performances. I watched the performances on my computer. There were several different camera angles. I enjoyed it. At least one of them should be offered on the archive. I find it suspicious that neither is offered. But frankly, it's what I expected. I would have been pleasantly surprised if it was offered. As I was surprised that they offered the earlier program.

I want to add that while I love seeing the clips on YouTube, I can see both sides of the argument on that one. But the Kennedy Center specifically posts the videos. This isn't a case of a private recording posted on YouTube or a commercial video being posted without permission. Other artists seem to have no problem with the Kennedy Center posting their performances. They are meant to be posted.

No

No...I meant "lost" Waltz Academy...

sad either way, but if the former were really posted on youtube or anywhere else that would be news...

Seriously, rg...it could probably cause some damaging myocardial infarction to some of the Powers That Be members...
"Oh...how she dared to do that..?!?!"

Can someone tell us what the pieces are? I recognize the Stravinsky and the Mozart (and can thus locate them on the Farrell Ballet repertoire list), but can't figure out what the Shostakovitch-y music is (reconstructed on synthesizer, it sounds like).

That was a suite of dances (continually revised,cut, reinserted, etc) from Don Quixote. The music was by Nikolai Nabokov.

(on-topic) in the case of the Kennedy Center videos - do we know who decides whether the videos are to be broadcast once archived?

I'm confused. If the video removed from the Kennedy Center website was from Balachine's Don Quixote, was it the Trust that had it pulled? I thought Farrell still held the rights to that and hadn't given them to the Trust.

Nanarina, I believe all of the Aurélie Dupont clips you're referring to are technically not supposed to be on Youtube. They were taken from the DVD released by Opus Arte and have almost certainly been uploaded without the permission of the copyright holder.
