Okay, in the last few weeks, over TEN videos sent in have been recognised of clip theft and prosecuted. I' not going to state any names, but this has just got to stop. It's getting ridiculous! For one, these videos that steal clips all look pretty bad. The transitions leak through, and it looks as if the entire video is a bomb waiting to explode. you never know when the next scene is going to cut. I think that people need to know more about Clip Theft, because obviously it's either fewer people know about it being wrong, or it's becoming more and more convenient for them to use other's clips.
I'll admit it may seem silly that we will remove a video becasue of one tiny clip in a video used from another person, but like it or not, it's true. Intentionally taking another person's work for your own use without permission is unacceptable, I'm afraid. I'm sorry that there are few ways to obtain clips, but these standards must still be upheld. If finding clips is a problem, then please PM a council member or another old-timer LVI member, and one of us may be able to point you in the right direction to get clips.

The only way that Clip Theft will be accepted is if the person asks for permission from both the vidder and us, so that we may know that this is the case and not prosecute it. Though I highly recommend you ask before the video is created. I think you will find that most, if not all, of our members would be happy to help you get the clips you need, if you just ask nicely.

Anyway, please stop this from happening. Every time I see a video with it, I groan, because it not only means more work for us, but it meas we will have to remove a video that the vidder worked hard on, clips stolen or not.

If we continue to go down this road, I fear that the Lost fandom could very-well turn into the imfamous "Buffy" one. Lets not let that happen.

Expect a teaching plan - Hobbes style - in the future if this continues


yeh what he said

Hey, guys--

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I think someone is stealing clips and passing them off as their own. I got a friend invite on youtube and one of the person's videos definitely has clips that are not his/her own.

Here's the link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47SWDjnODqI

About halfway through it looks like it's just made up entirely of stolen clips. I could be wrong, but someone might want to check it out.

Just thought I'd let you know!

Arrrrrrgh! I'd imagine the whole thing is probably made from other vids, just some parts are easier than others to identify. So not cool!

Thanks for letting us know, Carrie! *hugs!* ♥!

I was looking at some Crossover Video's on YT and Came Across a LOST/ER Video. I started to watch it and thought, oh not what I was thinking then I started to notice some things I thought I had seen before, then at 0:41 a watermark... Please take a look. I know she has clips fro all over the pace but it's not cool to steal anything!!!

I seriously think when people put no copyright intended they think stealing from peoples video's is just like downloading a clip or episode???

yeah she used some clips from my vids. That hand holding scene that she used like 20 times in the video. That's from one of my Kate/Thirteen vids. I can tell b/c of the coloring. I left her a nice message to inform her it wasn't cool. I let Samara know since she took tons of her stuff.

yeah, some people just don't understand how wrong that is. I told her I'd be more than happy to show her where to download clips.

You can tell that they're stolen because of the coloring differences going on through the vid.

I don't think people realize the amount of thought and time that goes into the vids.

I think it's either someone simply not crying or just ignorance of not understanding.

I was once offered a piece of a clip from someone's vid. I think they didn't understanding what I was asking; I was asking if they had that clip; and instead sent me the clip they had done in the vid. I didn't use it.

It says the video has been removed by the user. That's good, because clip thefting is so annoying & rude!

Thanks Nikki(s)!

I couldn't see what you're talking about because like Heather said it's been removed. Was it just clips they stole (like one of Kate) or whole manips? Because that would be really annoying.

I can't believe they actually kept my watermark. That is so stupid. If you're going to steal other people's work you should at least try to be discreet about it. I thought the whole reason we put watermarks on our vids was so people like that would think twice about stealing our clips.

Has anyone checked out their other vids to see if they've done it before?

It was just little clips here and there. Not manips so that's good atleast. I didn't check her other vids. Bit glad she took it down.

So someone 'made' me a video for my wishlist but its the same as this video from February 2011.

Here's the one she 'made.'

wth? It's one thing to steal a video but to say you made it for someone, when you stole is just a whole other level.
