They are adorable little miracles that should be shared with the world. And who isnâ€™t delighted by the youtubeâ€™d laughter of a child? (Or a drugged up kid after dentist.)

I realized that – while I was so enjoying recording and sharing my nephew on 90secs.com – there are ethical issues I should get clear on.
