I agree with removing the "unclaimed feeds". Most definitely. And they should stop spidering other sites. As of this moment, the spiders are still rollling. I see that ZipZapZop has a new vid out.

What is an acceptable response from Veoh? I'm throwing this out for

Here's one I personally could live with: this kind of "re-hosting"
should be opt-in.

That would mean that:
1) They remove ALL videos they've spidered and rehosted from their site.
2) They only keep the ones for feeds that the feed owners have claimed
and where the feed owners have given permission for them to "re-host".

For me, that makes sense. I don't think Veoh is "evil", I judge
companies by their actions. And this action would tell me: "We
understand why this was wrong, and we're fixing it for real."
