Brian Sapient and EFF kick Uri Geller’s ass

You may remember Brian Sapient, who uploaded an excerpt from a documentary that critiqued Geller’s performances and abilities (it was a clip from the Tonight Show, with Johnny Carson). In an attempt to stifle criticism, Geller claimed copyright infringement, and had the video removed.
EFF joined in the fray, and a little lawsuit took place.
Sapient and Explorologist Settle Lawsuit | Electronic Frontier Foundation

As part of the legal settlement, Explorologist has agreed to license the disputed footage under a non-commercial Creative Commons license, preempting future legal battles over the fair use of the material. A monetary settlement was also reached.

I’m including the video here for reference, and also because it’s cool.
