I know, this is just nuts, isn't it?! I know nothing about the specifics of copyright law, but I really think you have to be doing more than just dancing someone's choreography publicly -- I think you have to be making a profit on it. So, the YouTube stuff makes no sense at all. And the wedding videographer? -- how's he or she supposed to know whether what the wedding couple is dancing on their own private day is copyright protected???


Quite ridiculous and a waste of time, IMHO.

What an interesting story! How sad is it that after all these years the creator of the Electric Slide is spending his time defending a work that is over two years old instead of continuing to innovate? I guess the lesson for the rest of us artists and educators is to continue to creatively expand that we may avoid this sad embarassing!
