***NOTE*** This video was originally uploaded in 2013 but has been unavailable for more than a year! Basically, a channel I shouted-out in the first version asked to be removed. That's okay! Now, in a slightly re-edited version, the video is back! And space-ownership is STILL a major unresolved issue that deserves attention. I'm already filming my next brand-new episode, so stay tuned and enjoy this episode!
