Copyright Laws of CZsWorld

Posted by CZsWorld on December 18, 2013 at 4:15 PM

Before yesterday, I had begun uploading videos under the Creative Commons liscense. This allowed users to "Remix" my video using the the YouTube video uploader. My thought behind allowing you to do this was that people could create Trailers or use little portions of my video as stock footage for their films

Yesterday, a user used the YouTube Video Editor for reupload my video with no changes at all. This, I am not OK with. I was expecting users to use bits of my footage in a creative way, not to just rip off my movie. I have since changed the liscense on all but two of my videos (Channel Trailer and Fan Finder) to the Standard YouTube Liscense. This means, my videos are copyrighted and not available to the YouTube Video Editor. I apologize to those of you who used it lawfully, but I don't want people going around, just flat-out stealiing my videos.

If you want to use bits or pieces of my videos in your own projects, I don't want to leave you out in the cold. From now on I'll be issuing liscenses FOR FREE on a per user basis. Just send me an email (you can find my email on the Guest Services page), telling me what video you want to use and how it is going to be implemented in your project. I'll get back to you that same day and you'll be good to go.

Enjoy the rest of your Holiday Season, and be sure to come back here for the CZsWorld end of the year countdown before the end of 2013.
