Now, this post isn’t by a book blogger. It’s by Doug Walker, The Nostalgia Critic, a film reviewer from Youtube. I just think it’s important to know that what he’s talking about (people trying to silence criticism) stretches into book reviewing as well, and we all need to know how Fair Use works (book reviewers are critics, so we don’t need permission to post short excerpts or book covers – criticism and satire fall under Fair Use). It’s a long video and it’s about the current YouTube method of trying to fight a false copyright claim, but I still think it’s worth watching and thinking about in terms of book blogging, because there are always people trying to silence critics.
