Oh?

And the issue here seems to be that they mods do not have any means to tell the difference between legit or not legit videos. The rules here are the same. No posting videos or links.

Where can I find the specifics to that Purple Seal of Approval I asked mr Prince to give the org?

The only thing is, there's nothing Prince could do legally to bring the "hammer" down if we posted his videos from his official youtube channel. When he allowed his videos to be embedded he in essense gave his permission for the entire planet to do just that. There are no legal repercussions that can result from doing so...so it has zero to do with being "verified", whatever that means. Ben and the mods are acting out of good faith, nothing more.

the issue is what are legit and which are not? Again the fact that youtube says it is legit is not the same and theorg knowing. I agree he should have a channel that has all his videos and tons of live clips and tv appearances. However, he chooses--for the most part--not to. Sure some of that may be over who owns them. But that could be worked out. So maybe Prince is too stubborn to share money? Or maybe he just rather not live in the past? But whatever it is, it is his choice.

Yes...it is:


"Verification badges help visually confirm the authenticity of a YouTube channel. When you find the badge (on) a channel for a popular celebrity or business, you can be sure that the channel actually belongs to them." - Youtube/Google


As long as the youtube channel has the verification badge next to the artist's/celebrity's name, prince.org (and every other website and blog in existence) can act on the reality that this is most definitely a video officially released and authenticated by that celebrity.


And when that celebrity enables embedding for their videos they are giving the public limited license to embed that video on their websites without any legal ramifications. That's in the Youtube Terms Of Service.


There are no legal issues at play here. Again, it's just Ben and the mods acting on good faith (and, yes, paranoia lol).

YES. otherwise I could make copies of any album or movie and give them away and no one could do anything about it. But they can and do.

I have no idea. I am just telling you how it is.

So many answers and only one real answer.

The Channel has a "Seal Of Approval" by himself until,
at which moment he wishes to turn the channel off.
So, enjoy your remote control, enjoy the seat, view and ride,
be in the moment and enjoy the suprise.

Take care,
me.

It is all so very nice and vague:

.

The channel on j00t00b is vague as it appears self-declared; it could (still!) be a leak at the TV-station that this Aresnio person is working for.

The 'purple seal of approval' is undefined so we still do not know what will be acceptable proof to convince the org accounts that appear to us.

In the old days, would a letter by mr Londell MacMillan have sufficed?

Would a letter by Kiran (as she is said to handle PR) suffice?

(as I do not expect a letter by P himself)

I have a theory that he doesn't post more than one video on all his youtube accounts because he always forgets the passwords or something lol

He simply loses focus. As has been seen before in various instances.

Has to do with attention span, etc.

That would be a reason to get some BluRay hardware...

This a great perspective and agree 99%!!!

The other 1% belongs to the "other" videos that get attached to our search thereafter.

I would like to respectfully retract my comment a couple of pages before and ammend by saying that i think i may understand the tact of the .Org staff!

to confirm (any Mod welcome!), No youtube links cuz of unauthorized videos that may appear as a direct result of our initial search.

IS THAT THE CASE???

Prost!

It appears that the one video on that account, the full episode of the Arsenio Show, is now gone. Too good to be true.

Maybe they didn't have clearance for it. I mean, the Arsenio account doesn't post full shows on Youtube (just clips), so it seems weird that they'd let someone else do it.

Also, they re-ran the episode just this week (at least in my market)--maybe it was pulled in connection with the re-broadcast?

I get that the org has to be very very careful... but requiring the Prince camp to specifically "reach out" to the org to give "permission" to post a link to his official YouTube channel ... I mean, that's just stupidity at its greatest. Let's do some critical thinking here, people.

If he wanted the advertising on here we would of been contacted. Drfunkenberry has the purple seal of approval to post vids and pics and other 'approved' materials, he is his mouth piece. The org is not nor was chosen to be a mouth piece for Prince.

Since there's no longer any videos on this channel, I'm un-stickying it. As and when we see some activity, we can either make a new thread at that time or re-sticky this one.
