NOTICE: You Tube has been eliminating many videos that are considered protected under United States and International copyright laws and treaties. In the early years of You Tube, no one cared very much about the violations of the copyrights, with some of the material being available on You Tube for several years. TV Guide's Web site even linked to pages with videos available and added to the confusion about what was legally acceptable and what was not. With the recession remaining deep, entertainment entities in the movie, television, and music recording industries are paying You Tube more attention and are aggressively pursuing these copyrights, which previously had been neglected. Using copyrighted material requires the purchase of a license, which can require payment of royalties each time the material is presented to a viewer, which is the main reason the previously neglected copyrights are now being enforced. The licenses and royalties are sources of revenue to the owners of the copyrights. In deference to the property rights of those concerned, as copyrighted material is identified by You Tube removing the videos on their site, the videos deleted by You Tube will not be replaced by any others that likely have copyrights attached to them. My prediction is, given the nature of Ms. Masterson's work, which is 100% copyrighted, this page will eventually cease to exist. This is a sacrifice that has to be made in order to help eliminate the perception that heavy government regulation and monitoring of the Internet is required in order to protect corporate and individual copyrights.
It was fun bringing some of the fan's tributes to Mary Stuart Masterson to all of you here, but this service will most likely pass away in the next few weeks and months. Those video presentations from "You Tube Channels" that are 100% homemade, without editing clips from copyrighted works, will continue to be embedded on other pages of this site and its satellite sites.
