Re: DigitalRev take down GoPro review, copyright

The offending site probably used a GoPro graphic or web content without autorization.  Copyright law would not prohibit DigitalRev from showing pictures or video it shot with the camera, nor from publishing a review.

In truth, many sites don't review products at all, but merely re-present the spec sheets issued by the manufacturers and add a few unoriginal or flagrantly borrowed comments.

It would be curious to see if any serious side-by-side reviews of POV cameras exist at all.  Such tests would be difficult to concoct, since they could involve stunts that either costly or dangerous.  If you get a daredevil to BASE jump with one camera, who perishes or turns chicken, you might have to recruit another to perform the same jump with a competing camera.  Viewers will complain that the test was unfair because both test should involve the same location, risk of mortality, and G-force at impact on the rocks or reef.
