Congrats Alec Peters / CBS / Paramount, I Won't Be Watching Star Trek Discovery
Not to long ago, my video REVIEW of the movie Star Trek Beyond was claimed by Paramount Pictures that they owned the 'content', On top of that, months before CBS claimed ownership over a couple of my reviews of that horrible MacGyver reboot....still I wasn't given a copyright strike or anything, and it's not like my site, blog or youtube channel gets enough traffic for my to worry about lost revenue.
However, they have crossed the line.... last week, the awesome Tribbles in Ecstasy Podcast did a massive breakdown of the Star Trek Discovery trailer... and their YouTube channel did get a copyright strike, even though they did not use any media related to it. That is straight up bush league, because TIE is one of the best Star Trek related podcasts out there that gives strong attention to Star Trek Online on by the PC and on the consoles.
So while I was having thoughts of watching Star Trek Discovery even if it's going to be behind the CBS All Access pay-wall, I can say right now, that I'm not going to waste my time with it. Because what would end up happening is that I will want to review the episodes, and recent history has shown that CBS and Paramount are totally paranoid about their intellectual properties thanks to Alec Peters and the fuckery he pulled with the Axanar situation, which created a high level of mistrust between the studios and the fans.
Anyway, there are still other things that I can do watch & reviews of.
