Jonathan Coulton’s Site “Hacked” on Youtube

Jonathan Coulton » Blog Archive » Hacking My Site
Some leet hacker dude posted a youtube video showing how to download, for free, the videos for sale on Jonathan Coulton’s site. Which are Creative Commons licensed, and therefore free to redistribute. Which are available from several other sources, free, directly from Jonathan Coulton, for free, though on this particular site he asks you for a buck to download them.

So this guy found a “clever” way to “steal” something Coulton has given away for free in several places anyway.

Favorite line from Coulton:

Nice “hacking,” though in my day we used to call that a “browser plugin.”
