It *used* to be the American way. Not to get too political here, but American copyright law is a mess because corporate interests, Disney foremost among them, successfully bought-off Congress to keep extending copyright protections way beyond what would be fair to the estates of the original creators, and to lock everything up so that guys like us are afraid to let anything appear in our frame for fear of a lawsuit.

Meanwhile, the overly protective laws breed contempt and defiance by the "small fry" like wedding guys and in-house producers, creating a piratical atmosphere. We sit in a situation where following every nuance of the statutes is ridiculously complex and discouraging to the law-abiding, but the punishments for minor infractions are obscenely overdone. It can't change until we change the laws, and we can't change the laws unless we're billionaires.
