Thanks for visiting! I'm a year-round storm chaser and photographer covering St. Louis, the Midwest, the Great Plains and beyond. I've spent weeks on the road for the last 21 years, driving thousands of miles in all types of weather, and plan to do it for as long as I'm able. My goal is to capture nature's dramatic side, and in doing so, provide you with the perfect image for your home, office or business. I specialize in photography of tornadoes, lightning, St. Louis, MO and the Gateway Arch, storms and all types of extreme weather.

For small creators, "freebooting" help may only come from a legislative solution

Freebooting isn't a new thing. On Youtube, it's been happening since day one. Any popular video (over, say, 500,000 views) will get repeatedly stolen and re-uploaded to pirating channels, and my most popular videos are no exception. Now if I were a mega-corporation like Viacom, NBC or an Epic Rap Battles of History-sized channel, I would be a shoe-in for Youtube's Content ID system. Content ID automatically scans the Youtube system for videos that match the ones I've already uploaded, automatically flagging them and giving the copyright holder a choice on what to do (like remove the video or claim the ad revenue on it).
