    I'm not opposed to it. But you need to give me a real response. Image memes aren't going to make your case.

    Sadly this isn't the first time a fan has done something like this - though last time I remember it was someone impersonating a minor show staff.

    TBSP - More updates coming soon


    Though honestly I thought the Pokemon Snap video was a perfect send-off.

    Real response:

    I recommend the show to anyone who likes any of the better cross-generational western animations like MLP, Gravity Falls, Adventure Time, etc. It's a mostly light-hearted show that still manages to sucker punch you with themes of coming of age, identity, love, and loss.

    I'll try to give a brief run-down without being spoilery:

    The show focus on 13yo Steven and his companions of "Crystal Gems", who are from a race of living crystals from space who have appointed themselves guardians of Earth. Their leader, who was fascinated by mortal organic life, fell in love with a human and eventually gave up her existence to create Steven who is therefore uniquely half-human, half-gem. The show starts as Steven begins manifesting powers and begins to learn about the past of the Gems and his role that he feels he has to live up to from his mother.

    The world building starts off slow but picks up a steady pace through its current 110 eleven-minute episodes. I'm still amazed that they can cram a well paced and good story into that short of time *consistently*. The format is typically moster-of-the-week but has a frequent outing of slice-of-life episodes and an increasing number of serials for the ongoing storyline.

    The first episode is a little off, however the second episode got me hooked as more of the characters were exposed. The season 1 mid-season two-parter "Mirror Gem" / "Ocean Gem" made me a fan for the leaps it took in story telling.

    Steven Universe is helmed by Rebecca Sugar who launched her career with Adventure Time, having served as writer, storyboarder, and song writer. For SU she not only serves the typical creator roles (direction, writing, art style, storyboarding), she also writes most of the songs and even performs them (dare I say she is better than Daniel Ingram). The music is one of the excellent features of the show, ranging in genre from rock to jazz to contemporary folk (expect a lot of ukulele).


    I would provide a few examples but most songs are pretty spoilery to major story events, so here is just a cool credit song (they ran a different verse after each episode in season 3 culminating in the finale). I would have a huge list otherwise.

    Rebecca Sugar for lyrics and vocals.




    From what I've seen, the fandom around the show seems more interested in discussing the show and it's themes bitching and complaining (you may already be aware of some of it regarding Tumblr, etc) than creating fanart, animations, and music like MLP and I think that's a shame.


    Ponies still win out over gems based on cute points alone, though.

    Yo Nords,

    There is a live action Rainbow Rocks musical, and it's going on "world tour".

    (For relative values of "world" and "tour")

    Sorry, the live show. Your comment is perfectly rational.

    Three 22-minute specials, which take place after the events in the Legend of Everfree film, are set to be released beginning in 2017, as reported by World Screen on October 4, 2016 quoting Finn Arnesen, vice president of global distribution and development at Hasbro Studios, and as stated in an October 18, 2016 press release published by Hasbro.
    So, not a Christmas special as initially believed.

    So somehow the rights to 'Nightmare Nights' (Wooden Toaster, MicTheMic, Living Tombstone) and possibly other songs has been grabbed by Ostereo Limited who has been issuing a swath of takedown notices to remixes and related videos. This is leaving me with a few questions like to collaborative works bestow any rights to the other artists when something like this happens and with or not the original song(s) were under any other kind of license.

    Plus why get the rights now 6 years after the song released. Is it really worth so much to put it on a label?

    I am not a lawer. This is not legal advice. This post should not be construed to create an attorney-client relationship. If you think it does, what kind of an idiot are you? I mean, Rak, Wolf, & Xeno don't read this subform AFAICT...

    Generally, a collaborative work will have ownership shared by the authors. Unless it's a work done for hire, or copyright is otherwise assigned away. Derivative works may be fair use, eg in the case of parody, and if sufficiently transformative they get their own separate copyright. And since Fair Use is something that has to be proven in court to hold up it's easy for copyright holders to use the notice-and-takedown procedures the DMCA requires (and the more restrictive procedures Youtube has.)

    By default all copyrightable work is automatically copyrighted the instant it's created, a more permissive license can be provided (eg Creative Commons) but by default things like sampling and remixing are not allowed.

    Copyright lasts for the life of the author + 70 years, and there's no limit to how long you can wait between a copyright being infringed upon and taking legal action to stop that infringement.

    Which is in stark contrast to trademark, which must be actively defended, otherwise you lose it.

    I was refering more to the original song that was worked on in a collaboritive manner between multiple artists, not the derivative works that have received takedowns. I would gave to assume then that WoodenToaster, Living Tombstone, And MicTheMic were all on board.

    Any one could send out a takedown. To make a derivative work you need the permission of ALL the copyright holders.

    Re the last topic here:

    WoodenToaster and his label quickly came to an agreement with content producers and the takedowns we're retracted.


    In new... news:

    Season 8 has been confirmed for Spring 2018 with 26 episodes!

    Six Seven Eight seasons and a movie!

    It'll be interesting to see what season 8 is like. I have to imagine they'll use Toon Boom for it, picking up after the movie rather than going back to Flash. In which case I wonder how much of the movie's higher-budget aesthetic will be retained...
