Subject: Why did ICC remove the videos?
Why did the ICC web (www.chessclub.com) site remove the Federowitz and
Christiansen videos? I found them very useful for revising opening ideas,
especially the ones about the English attacks.

I am a paid member of ICC, so it is not that I want to get things for
free, but since they were ALREADY free, why remove them? If they were
worth publishing in the first place (and I think that they were), then
they should be worth leaving there.

I hatge to criticize, but the Akopian videos, which describe his own games
with everyone in sight, were left on and they are much less useful - at
least for me.

I have all the video downloaded to my hard drive. About 2 GB in size.
You can find almost all the videos on eMule. I don't think this is illegal,
because chess.fm never mentioned these lectures can't be copied not for profit.

``Not making profit from something'' has little to do with ``breaching
copyright law.'' For example, my understanding is that it is against
English copyright law to record a TV programme and keep it for more than
30 days, regardless of whether anyone ever sees, let alone pays for,
the tape (let alone, if one is being pedantic, the data encoded on it).

David,

Internet is not TV, and chess.fm is not under GB jurisdiction. Your example is
as much on topic as Iranian ban on playing chess.

Both very true. However, my example does illustrate that copyright law
has very little to do with distribution for profit.

I guess I like the videos that are opening tutorials, I guess. Well at
least the Federowitz videos have been put back. His videos on the english
attack and on the weakness of the sicilian Dragon are priceless.
