As soon as I saw this, I thought about you.

Surely the HOPE poster knits a silk purse out of a rather humdrum photo and becomes more than the sum of it’s parts? Surely?! Would anyone deny the world HOPE posters for the sake of AP News photos? Is this just a matter of finance and royalties? If we put royalties first, we’ll lose HOPE posters. Lose HOPE, quite literally.

Did Colbert explain why?

For those looking for more discussion on the book, this was an interesting take with more opportunities to Remix outside of video clips and participate here… Their review brings up a few valid points and it’s nice to hear something besides the usual “Loved it/Hated it” that some media gives…

Remixing is okay. …I say it…..Stephen Colbert….. :)

What a fun way to get the message out and inform. I am just getting into remixing and so I am using these challenges to learn and spread the word. Creative minds can go where others cannot. Kudos and keep up the great work ‘Win>Win>Wins in so many different areas. Here is one of my remixes. Ciao4Now GO VIRAL and increase the peace http://www.spymac.com/details/?2393562 E N J O Y

They would be breaking the law if you were to watch it. Sorry, complain to CTV that you are unable to watch it. It is a Canadian problem, not Comedy Central or Viacom’s fault.

Visit that site if you live in Canada for a legal way of gaining access to the Colbert Report. I enjoy the Colbert Report and would prefer you use legal means of accessing it as to keep the show alive.

Funny that during the original interview Larry gave permission and Steven did not. Wonder why only Steven is in this remix. ;-)

Lawrence: Can you please switch to something more international friendly, like YouTube? Com. Central is blocking us people up in Canada

I wonder how long it will take for media companies to really *get* the Internet. Region restrictions are so 20th century,

Well done sir, and well done to all.
