BBC News Online’s piece about Noel Gallagher being pushed over during a gig in Canada raises an interesting point about online video.
The video, which the Beeb clearly says is from YouTube, uses the BBC’s own formatted player to display the section they wanted to illustrate the text. The attribution line doesn’t even link through to the original video.
Basically it looks as if they have ripped it, chopped the bit they want and then reposted it to their own site (have a look at a screengrab).
What they haven’t done is attributed it to BackpackDave08 who actually shot the footage.
Interesting that they see the source as YouTube and not the YouTube user. Would have been nice for them to link through to the original video too – I think it works better as there is a longer build-up and you can see the band in colour (Noel innocently tuning up), before the lights go down and the guy pounces.
So here, for the sake of completeness is the orginal vid by BackpackDave08
