    That would be a watermark. People put them in their videos so if people steal their clips they'll know about it.

    Well, you can always copy/paste and post it as your own, but mostly they stole many many MANY ideas from a particular fic and put it in their own, which was almost the same. Used the same names that I used for OC's (in this case, islander's kids) and this is two separate times, but copying the same fic. In fact, the other person who did it, even added some of my own dialogue from a completely separate fic, so it was like a double theft. hehe I PMed them nicely, but slightly pissed and pointed out all of the similarities and when they profusely apologized and explained that they had a hard time reading and writing fics at the same time, I became convinced that it was an accident. Another time tho, someone blatantly copied a fic of mine and even reviewers noticed it, and the fic was in their faves list, and she had actually reviewed in the fic that she was copying! Talk about not being subtle. When I confronted her about it, she got mad at me and refused to speak to me any further, so I know she was just annoyed cuz I caught her. Anyway, that's how you steal fanfic. lol!

    Haha, I love it. I don't know if anyone has ever stolen from me, but I've had fanfiction stolen (seriously, like 5 times!!) and it sucks having your hard work and ideas stolen. Very nice vid. I think a lot of people don't realize that clip-theft is frowned upon, so great vid!

    Very nice! I went *squee!* every time that watermark popped up (which, uh, isn't my usual reaction to spotting clip theft, of course... ). It was so cool to see my work "featured" like that! Yay!

    That was really awesome of you to come up with this to help show people what clip theft is! You rock, hon!
