"Silent Protest Update" Evidently lip syncing is a no no. #Copyright #Fail

Well I uploaded my protest to YouTube and was immediately faced with a copyright infringement notification.

I created a rather passionate and ridiculous lip sync with captions to the Sam Smith song "I'm Not the Only One" Evidently however, lip syncing is a no no, even when you aren't making any money from it.

I suppose it could constitute a parody, but due to the fact I'm not actually parodying the song itself I feel that would be a weak defence. Since I have no desire to be further distracted from the book and other pursuits by dealing with suits I'll likely just hold off on posting it and share it with just a few people.

However, here are some screenshots at least so you can see I went to town on this idea. I also have a green screen on the way and some lighting. So if this experience did nothing else but inspire me to start doing my own video work then it was still worthwhile. Thanks for checking in.
