It certainly does offer a fun opening to Wall*E

and those are nice hats and posters - I was expecting to find them offered.

I'd hazard a guess that no one at Disney or Pixar authorized that video to be on the Internet.

So, my question is: Do we want to be linking to a pirated video?

Pretty much every clip 'we' link to on youtube or break or whatever is pirated. How many little clips from America's Got Talent alone have been on here? All pirated.

Legally, I believe that linking the content is legal (after all, it's what google does) it is when the clips are embedded in forums (albeit hosted someplace else) that lawsuits have been successful.

If the copyright owners want the clips pulled, they alert the host and the clips are pulled. What most have realized is that they're really good advertising, and so they not only let them stay, the companies and networks themselves are often posting the content.

I agree wholeheartedly.

I wish Viacom realised that before the judge made Google/Youtube give up 100 million user names and the corresponding IP addresses of everyone that has used youtube. Yes. 100 million.

If you'd like to own a legit (and high-quality, widescreen) copy, it's available on iTunes for $1.99.

Yeah, just buy the legal version for iTunes. It's much higher-quality and only $1.99.

(for what it's worth Disney/Pixar have been very active in pulling unauthorized postings of "Presto" from YouTube and other video sites. The one linked above is hosted on a less well-known site called http://www.snotr.com/ . I'm sure if they find out it's posted there that the Disney/Pixar legal team will send the same copyright violation complaint to Snotr.com and it will be pulled. )

How about both posters, the hats and a stuffed rabbit?

Going to see this tomorrow at the best screen in London, proper THX sound.

29 USD PER TICKET. Plus 40 USD train fare to get to London. It better be bloody good. :D

And I have managed to resist watching the short on the internet too. That was tough!

$29 for a ticket? Holy Christmas.

I assume you're seeing it in front of Wall-e, which is a deeply profound film and well worth the money.

Buying it on iTunes seems pointless when you're going to get a copy of it when you buy WALL-E.

And you ARE going to want a copy of WALL-E. Best first reel in Pixar history.

Best line:
Eve: Directive?
WALL.E: [Wall-E gathers up some trash, compacts it and spits it out.] Ta-da!
