Hello folks, I'm new to the board, and I'm here to try to draw the attention of animation fans, music fans, or people who appreciate the encouragement and mentoring of aspiring animators, and anyone who was drawn in by AniBOOM's ads in partnership with Adult Swim.

Jeff Massie was kind enough to make a post about this on The Animation Guild (TAG) blog. http://animationguildblog.blogspot.com/2008/05/you
Hopefully some more sites will post about the story soon, as well.
The TAG post refers to Dany Saadia as having submitted material he did not own copyright to, the issue is more that, aside from merely using pre-animated material at all, Saadia certainly doesn't have exclusive rights to the footage he submitted, and has still never given any animator credit for an entry he submitted to an animation contest on an animation website.
AniBOOM has finally made an official response, although it doesn't say very much, at least we finally know that they are aware of the issues. http://forums.aniboom.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=7
One of the jury members who helped select the semifinalists was Michael Cahill, Senior Producer/Editor, Adult Swim On-Air. It would be nice to hear if there is any official comment from him or Adult Swim about this, but I suspect there may be confidentiality issues, and other issues, that would make that unlikely.
Also, feel free to give FEEDBACK to AniBOOM, if you desire, through the button on the bottom of their main page:

The most disappointing part of this whole issue is that the organizers laid it out like a storyboard competition; that they were looking for the best story as much as the style.
Then they go and do a complete 180 and pick the pretty little animations that looked cool. Out of the top 10 finalists, I'd say only 2 are actually storyboarded for a full music video.
I feel like the fat girl at prom, dude. The jock totally said he liked my personality and then he left me sitting at the bus stop because he chose the hot blonde at the last minute.
