I think copyright is only one part of the problem here. The bigger problem in my eyes is that by Veoh caching and rehosting videos without permission they are making it seem as though all these vloggers are members of the Veoh community, agreeing to Veoh's terms of service, when this is not the case. This is deceitful practice.
Its not just about link backs or adhereing to CC licenses (though that is part of the problem). Its also about my right as a user to decide whether or not I'd like to participate in an web community or not. Veoh cannot make this decision for me and then tell me I have the opportunity to "opt out" when in fact I never chose to "opt in." -Josh On 4/9/06, Charles Iliya Krempeaux <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Hello, > > I've been following the various threads on this.
