Season 1 Share List?

Postby CancerBottle » 29 Apr 2011, 13:15

EDIT AGAIN: Some members have suggested we break up the share by country/region in order to cut down on shipping costs.

Once the disc finishes its U.S. tour, we'll send it to Canada, then New Zealand, Australia, and finally continental Europe. The Revised list is below. If you don't have a location listed by your name, let me know so we can get you in line and you don't get skipped.

EDIT: Due to the success of the success of the UK share, bar room hero is generously allowing Runners in Australia, Canada and the United States to borrow the disc as well! Thank him.

This was the original post:

Code: Select all

I posted this on another thread, but I don't think many people read it.

Could we start a mailing list or something (and it doesn't have to be here) so that willing owners of season 1 DVDs could send them to those who haven't seen the content yet? Then that person sends it to someone else and so on. The owner gets his or her DVD back of course, but this way Graham and Crew aren't involved. It's just a bunch of friends sharing a DVD disc.


If you live in the UK, the U.S., Continental Europe, Australia, or New Zealand and you want in on this, post in the thread.

Please Read and Follow the Rules:
1. The first person on the list PMs the current holder of the disc with her/his shipping information.

2. Once the disc is shipped and the borrower receives the disc, he or she will post so in this thread.

3. The borrower may keep the disc up to ONE WEEK.

4. The next person on the list PMs her information to the current holder of the disc and so on.

5. Please post in the thread when you receive and when you ship the DVD.

6. *If you're on the list, please ensure that you have a reliable way of receiving private messages.* You can set your forum account to send you an e-mail when you get a PM. If you do not respond to the PM request for shipping info within TWO weeks your name will be moved to the bottom of the list.

7. No burning, ripping or any other method of copying the data on the DVD is allowed.

8. The disc is not your property, treat it with the utmost care and respect. This includes packaging as well. Don't let the disc or the case get damaged.

9. You pay to ship the disc to the next person. This is easier and faster and prevents the disc from getting held up somewhere in a dispute. Be aware that this means that you may need to pay to ship the disc internationally.

(The asterisk by a name means that person currently has the disc or it is in transit from that person.)

I'm pretty sure this is discouraged... but I could be wrong. It happened before, once.

Really? I don't remember that. I don't think we have any particular reason to not want it passed around, as long as you're actually sharing the physical DVD, and not, like, copying it.

Yeah, I don't remember being wrong either. I do recall Graham specifically stating not to upload a torrent of S1, but that's different I guess.

Yeah, a torrent is definitely a no no.

But a physical share isn't a particular propblem per se.

Let's see what G has to say when he sees this.

I think if we get a barn full of ninjas with the power to fight off the orc style masses of inevitable layers we could just put it back up on the site, any one know of any ninjas that don't mind being payed with peanuts and living in a barn? I think about 45 should do it :P

That's all I'm proposing.

EDIT: Of course, we'd have to rely on the honor system, but considering how good S1 DVD owners have been on not uploading torrents of the videos, I'm pretty confident this would work.

I'd be up for seeing some Season 1. I know torrents are a no, but what of live streams? I ask because although I'd do it, it seems easier to stream and show a bunch of people than to mail it all about. That's probably discouraged as well, however...

Were not all completely strangers, I mean most of the people here on the forums are either good people, or a bot, and bots don't want the season 1 dvd. :mrgreen:

So, question.

I presume that LRR is against a torrent of Season One on legal grounds - id est, a lot of the early videos contain uncleared music clips and whatnot, which is why the videos aren't freely available to begin with.

But then... why do the DVDs themselves even exist in the first place? Isn't selling DVDs with copywrited material FAR more problematic than distributing them for free? (And yes, I realize they are no longer available.) And what is the fear behind the torrent? That it will attract attention from the copywrite holders and bring their wrath down on LRR's head? I mean, who the heck is even going to care outside of the community?

The DVDs were a mistake after the fact (otherwise they'd be reprinted). To allow torrents is just asking for trouble.

Back when LRR first started the rules weren't as inforced as they are now, because websites like youtube were not even in existance, so back then no really cared that they were using copywrited music, and they were able to make dvds with no problems, then youtube and other places spawned, people put up copywrited material, and then the rules got stricter.
At least that is what I know to my knowledge...

Except that fan made torrents would be 1) not in any way affiliated with LRR, 2) obscure and on a small, unnoticeable scale, and 3) producing no profit.

Is this just a matter of being covert? There's little real difference between fans distributing the data via physical disk and via digital download.

Hell, if you fear a torrent is just too open and noticeable a method of sharing, there are great ways to send the same data completely anonymously and undetectably.

Wait, why would an unapproved torrent of Season one lead to LRR being shut down?

It's not as if they'd be able able to do anything about it, so how would they be considered liable?
