V-cinema queen Kei Mizutani‘s movie debut as Keiko Nakadai in the 1995 adult comedy Weather Woman, was arguably her signature role. Above we see Kei as Keiko, making her first appearance as the new weather woman at a Tokyo news station. After she raises her skirt to illustrate the depth of a recent snowfall, thus exposing her panties on the air (and bringing back an old memory for her former high school classmate viewing), Keiko becomes an overnight sensation.

As for the now 40-year-old Kei, after Weather Woman, she continued acting throughout the rest of the 90′s but passed on reprising her role as Keiko in the 1996 sequel, Weather Woman Returns. (The role went to Misa Aika, who now resides in the “Whatever Happened to..?” file.) Kei did make an appearance at the 2000 San Diego Comic Con, where Weather Woman made its US premiere, but since then, she pretty much retired from acting, save for a rare occasional part, such as her small role in 2010′s Flower and Snake 3.

Obviously, on a site such as this one, we republish lots of photos, which occasionally leads to the odd Copyright claim. Luckily, most people/companies are reasonable about this, and recognise the promotional value of our site (with one very big and famous exception). Our case is relatively straightforward though, as it is basically an internet version of a newspaper/magazine (which have fair use rights), and we promote our sources directly. But what about other new media, such as YouTube?

Super cute and highly successful video blogger Michelle Phan (featured here on our old site) has always made a point of supporting and promoting the music she uses in her videos, so she assumed she’d be safe. But apparently not—she’s being sued by Ultra Records, for the outrageous sum of $150,000 per infringement! This is in spite of the fact that at least one of the artists in question (Kaskade) are hugely supportive of Michelle, and greatly appreciate the free publicity she’s given them.

I should make it clear that I personally very strongly support the right of artists to be paid for their work. However, the sort of thing Michelle is doing is clearly a huge net benefit for the artists whose work she uses, as they themselves recognise. I therefore find this lawsuit absolutely outrageous and stupid. What do you think?
