Any overall thoughts on that stuff?
Yeah, I was surprised you let the Spiderdub movie slide, even if it was funny as hell. Maybe the best solution is to take down submissions of such kind if you get a notice from any big companies. Hopefully no-one goes to the step of suing you right away just because they saw copyrighted footage of Harry Potter on one dub submission here. It is a tough decision when there are such classics such as Knox's dubs in the portal.
When it comes to copyrighted material, I'm more concerned about WMG or any major record companies going after submissions here just because someone made a music video for a Beatles song. Animators have shown great visionaries with songs they've used with their animations and it would suck if all that effort went down the drain. Maybe you can protect them by saying you didn't place new policies until last year but copyright laws are always tricky to me.
