You can, and if you haven’t yet should, watch Peter Sinclair’s video demolishing Anthony Watts’ surfacestations.org embedded below. Watts’ complaint of copyright violation was at best a head scratcher and at worst a cynical and childish outburst but no matter what obviously unjustified.
Watts has a post up supposedly to explain his reasoning, but it is very long and says virtually nothing that is relevant to copyright issues relying mostly on ridicule. It is also rather condescending and smug, an attitude that looks all the worse for the fact that his compliant has been judged unfounded. The only substantive part is about the NCDC paper that Sinclair relied on. This is hardly relevant to any imagined copyright issues.
Sinclair’s post on DeSmogBlog summarizes the end result quite nicely:
I wish to extend my sincerest gratitude to YouTube, to all those who advised and supported me in this effort, and most especially, to Anthony Watts and SurfaceStation.org, for providing invaluable exposure to my video series, and greatly increasing my traffic and visibility.
