Harlan Ellison -- Pay the Writer

This is great. I agree 100%

(Does this mean I have to pay Mr. Ellison to put this on my blog?)

It's a good sentiment, but unfortunately these things are relatively hard to enforce, I think. But I agree with Mr. Ellison completely -- they shouldn't be hard to enforce; credit should always be given where credit was due and when appropriate (as in the example he relates) money should absolutely change hands.

As for whether putting this video on your blog should cost you money, it's on YouTube, so isn't it in the public domain? (I'm pretty sure they don't allow copyrighted material on YouTube.)

I won't tell Ellison if you won't...
