YouTube Copyright Blowup

Here Comes Another Bubble by an a capella group called the Richter Scales is a recent viral video hit on YouTube.   The use of a photograph from photographer, Lane Hartwell, caused her to request a DCMA takedown of the video because they did not credit her with the use of one of her photographs.  This has set up a fascinating debate regarding Fair Use in blogs of various communities, including content creators and free information use advocates.
