As for copyright laws becoming less stringent, they won't, and shouldn't.   Copyright laws protect content creators, which is a good thing. 

I disagree with this. In Just for Fun, the autobiography of Linux creator Linus Torvalds, he spends a chapter discussing various forms of IP protection, focusing specifically on how they apply to software. He points out a lot of absurdities in the system that do little to protect creators' rights but do a lot to cause lawsuits. I recommend reading it if you have the time; the entire book is a fascinating read.

Copyright reform is badly needed in the US, but there's little political will to get it done because the big corporations that benefit the most from the current IP law have the most clout—the average citizen of the US doesn't know and doesn't care much about copyright law. Disney, in particular, I have heard has been successful in getting copyright law modified to extend copyright terms, preventing Mickey Mouse from falling into the public domain.

Unfortunately, in all the fine print, that's not good enough.  They can do what they want to do.. So many things they own have been shut down and removed all across the net (blogs, sites, programs, etc)

Here you go.... Maybe one day....

Additionally, BlogTV is very lax on silly rules

Apparently Youtube is not the same way as its look like they have unfortunately terminated Bigjon's account.

As said from his BlogTV, he said it got terminated because of a video of how to sign up to this one website, not the games. He's trying to get it back without making a BigJon07 or something.

Whew! Well, at least is wasn't from his games! But, I still fell so bad for Jon...Why must bad things happen to good people? I see nothing wrong with what he has done! I mean, it's just some fun among a few hundred friends....not the entire Price nation....DISmantle, why must you be so mean?

Wow the last two posts proves nothing in "Read Above" department. Kian just said, and I can back up the statement that this had nothing to do with Fremantle in any way. There was supposedly a crack down on How-To videos around YouTube. Do not go freaking out that Fremantle had any involvement, and I would really suggest this thread get locked now.

I notice on Jon's new page that there are no game-show related video clips or any clips showcasing his game show PC game creations.

Also, I noticed that a video of BigJon's TPIR creation is on hellurz06's page.  Makes me wonder if that is another one of BigJon's YouTube pages that he plans on showcasing his PC game creations and not just TPIR?

Plus, I think the Season 40 update is the best version he ever made so far!  Not to mention a close-up of George Gray's reaction to the overbid is prevalent!  It's too bad he won't release the game to the public anymore.

However, I wonder if BigJon will make a one-time allowance and let us have a copy of his Season 40 game as long as he does what he did with the last release?  Even if he has to release it privately?

The best bet is to not ask and wait patiently. I personally don't hold my breath for any update of The Price is Right, as I know asking is practically the same as asking him to put himself on the line at risk to face Fremantle's wrath. If Jon is willing to make that risk, I'll jump for joy; if he isn't, than that too is ok.
