Well, if people imitate you, you must be doing something right!
Dave, I wonder if your blog idea, format, etc. is copyrighted?

It's not the first time, and it's not a big deal.
BTW, I don't know who in NK can browse YouTube besides Kim himself?

Our Great Leader has inspired us to dominate the blogasphere.
Through the Great Leader's magnificence and unquestionable wisdom, I am allowed to speak to you.
The great US Ambassador Dennis Rodman has inspired the Great Leader to reconsider many points.
Only through the Great Leader's wisdom and world superiority are these things possible.

Anything you create is automatically covered by copyright, you don't have to apply for it.
So no one can use my text, my images, my website code etc but that doesn't cover "look and feel".
To protect that you need a design trademark, and that's tricky business.
I have a trademark on EEVblog, so no one can use that name, but apart from that it's fair game.

I was looking for some info on STM32 and the first thing that popped up was that guy's video.

OK Dave, I got it now. No infringement only cringement.

You'd have a fair chance of winning a case for "passing off". His website certainly passes the "moron in a hurry*" test.


*I was particularly surprised to find the Wikipedia entry for the latter when I was looking for something to cite, it's quite abstruse.
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?

Except I would image that in a case like this, the "product" is the individual creating content, and that would likely muddy the water. i.e. Any "moron in a hurry" looking at that content can tell he's not me, from his photo, from his name, or from the content itself.
But at first glance, visually the word EEDBlog looks a lot like EEVBlog.
The intent to mimic seems reasonably clear though.

Not that it really matters, it's like  :-//

I just realized that, by posting links to his content here, there was probably a spike in viewership on his channel.
If the content is good this will keep him in business, which is an overall good thing and in the future this could be seen as a playful act to get early attraction.
If the content is bad, then it will naturally fade.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

The intent would appear to be some variation on typosquatting (Eee-Eee-Dee versus Eee-Eee-Vee, close in sound and on the keyboard) I guess with the intention of snaffling a bit of ad revenue from Google. As you say,  :-//, he might make $5 a year from it.

This is a result of sowing the seeds of knowledge, give a another perspective, or someone that has on the "hate" side :P The title sugest it may be focus on the designing perspective, but description refers to electronics.

I didn't finish my sentence... The fact that someone could make a similar title and content it may lead to more occurences or derivates from the title for other purposes... like youtube :P

If one can make knowledge flow than it will go from negative to positve , for real

That´s the point. Content is what matters most.

It actually looks like quite good content.

It's a shame he felt he had to mimic Dave to be successful.

Yeah, I don't get it.
I've helped inspire dozens, if not a hundred channels into starting their own, and no one felt the need to play off my name or web site design until now, as it's silly to think that can even work.
Anyone with any sense of how Youtube and the internet works knows there is no advantage to doing that.

I figured I'd let you know. The only good thing is most of his stuff is no audio or Turkish language. If he exists on this forum, shame and desist please.

Quick! Someone register [www.ee?blog.com for all other ? <> (d,v)]!  :-DD

By the way I just tried to get to site, but not working. Is it just me?

A google search does pull up a number of other EED Blogs (eg. https://eed.osu.edu/welcome-eed/eed-blog).
