JWB Is this copyright infringement? (70* d) Is this copyright infringement? 10 Feb 09


I have just discovered that an enterprising young Englishman has taken the 24 tracks of one of my CDs and created 24 "videos" on YouTube. Each "video" uses the CD cover as the graphic, and the "soundtrack" is one track from the recording. The gent credits me and my Starboard Messmates as the artists.

(Sorry if this isn't a blue clicky -- I believe I followed the steps in the macro. The CD is Roast Beef of Old England, so a search on YouTube is sure to find GoodFightLad's 24 postings)

Do you think this is an infringement of copyright?
