    It’s beautiful! Great to see this come to fruition after seeing the various drafts. Bravo!

  • Thank you very much Nina for this wonderful video spreading the truth that the copyright lobby wants us to forget. As a developer of creative works myself (software in my case) I’m sure there is much more work behind this short animation than most people would believe and you totally deserve all the praise and attention I hope you will get.

    I’m gonna spread this network style as much as I can, it needs to be seen by as many people as possible! Once again, thanks!

    I don’t care for the emphasis on the word ‘us’ at 0:37

    Also, the phrase “If I copy yours you have it too” just doesn’t sound quite right to me, a bit too restricted to make way way for the use of the word ‘one’. The message gets across clearly, but the tone of the song just seems too condescending to me, especially coming from the characters with cartoon proportions. It just sort of throws me off with competing attitudes in general between the visuals and the music.

  • Me encanto. Voy a preparar un resumen de todas las versiones que han salido.

    Adoro la que cantas tu en persona.
