A while back, I found my videos that were ONLY available through Preppy’s site on youtube. I was never contacted or credited for the videos and when I found out, I sent a message requesting either to take all the videos downs or to edit the info and to properly credit me and Preppy for the original hosting. He apologized and make the edit and everything was fine afterwards.
There was another time that I was sent a pm or email or something from another individual who reposted my vids on youtube. At least he sent me a message, but it was like “I hope you don’t mind if I posted your vids on youtube, but if you want me to take them down I will…” or something like that.
Listen up people. We work hard to get these footages/videos to you. The least you can do is ask BEFORE reposting or mirroring. Sure, I’d love the exposure, but it defeats the purpose of me having my videos hosted on a specific site, then having someone else host them on youtube/google video under THEIR name/account. Some of you have seen my videos and a lot of them aren’t space friendly due to the quality of the vids and when you see them on youtube it looks like shit. Flash video bs or whatever is not the same and degrades quality.
It is nice to know that other people enjoy your vids, but to find out that it’s hosted on another site without your permission is slap in the face. No respect. All you have to do is ask. Sure I won’t mind as long as I’m credited and everyone else who helped.
