This week's poll is about YouTube.

And it was inspired by comments in my tip on Dave Trott, that lacerated him for adapting Norwegian beat-boxing legend Lasse Gjertsen into Sacla.

So let's find out - is it okay to adapt YouTube clips into ads?

Now, obviously, if you're one of those people who believe it's wrong to rip any book, film, work of art or comedy sketch, then you will vote 'no'.

And if you're one of those people who believe advertising has the right to be inspired by any primary source, then you will probably vote 'yes'.

But what I'm really interested in is the question of whether there is something qualitatively different about adapting a YouTube clip.

Vote now, in the right hand column of this blog.

And if you have a view (please please please, not on 'originality in advertising' in general, we're all sick to death of that, but specifically on the YouTube question), then I would love to hear from you in the comments.
