I apologize to everyone in the group for so blatantly violating the
copyright of the BBC.
The clip has been removed. I shall notify staff-l of the removal.
Next time, I should begin negotiations with the content owners before
doing anything entertaining.

Yes, seriously. There is a perception that the free software/free
content movement is all about wilfully ignoring copyright and we
should be very careful not to provide support for that perception.
A fair-use of BBC material in my mind!
I don't see how it is fair use. Just because it's a short clip doesn't
automatically make it fair use. You didn't critique or review the
work, you just copied it so that other people could see it.
And I'm not publishing it anywhere else
except internally to wmf people.
