Is that only available with a Pro subscription?
Mark, on Vimeo page, you can click on STAT to see who's embedding the video.

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

UPDATE

The owner called Shannon. He was very pissed. He said it was his wife testing the size of the video placeholder on the web site before launch. And it wasn't meant to be stealing. He also demand a public announcement from Shannon saying it wasn't intentional...

Wow this guy has thick skin.

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

The site is dying. It won't handle all the traffic. If you missed it, here's a screen cast someone did earlier today.

If you're doing it the correct way you wouldn't, but I'd bet 75% of web developers simply count on people not stumbling across a new URL.

Anyway, that's all moot because the owner of the site confirmed it was a site under development, but under development by his wife.

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

Don't know what you are refering to but my point was that if it's a wordpress site, the videographer is most probably also the "web developer", maybe I misunderdstood your earlier comment but didn't understand what the developer had to do with this.

You are correct in this case that they were making their own site. However in my follow-up post I pointed out that a WordPress site is no longer a guaranteed indicator of a self-created site. Many, many web development companies use WordPress as a content management system - in other words, most websites, small and large, start with WordPress.

He is just plain stupid, why would you use a competitors video to testdrive your site when it's live, doesn't he have any own videos for testing purposes? I would have called him immediately if my work was ripped and give him a few hours to remove it, Shannon maybe should have as well but she doesn't owe him anything, he (or his wife) should have known better.

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

I told her, if there is a public announcement, it should be from him apologize to Shannon.

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

Regarding the Facebook thread: "The lady doth protest too much, methinks." An apt Shakespearean quote. A simple "Sorry, my bad" would have sufficed. :)

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

While I agree they did a very bad thing, I do believe their excuse.

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

Teapot.... Tempest... welcome to the web, noob...

Dumb mistake, probably "innocent", but the problem is the initial ATTITUDE - I've had pictures ripped off (eBay), and the jackwagon has the nerve to cuss me out when called on it...

People don't always "get" how public the internet is, how powerful a medium it is, and how quickly IP violations can be uncovered. Like a kid with his or her hands "caught in the cookie jar", the unfortunate first response always seems to be poorly thought out and defensive, sometimes it ends up in an even bigger mess, instead of being addressed and "fixed" thoughtfully and promptly.

Looks to me like the principals in this have resolved it, lesson learned, internet 101...people do silly dumb things every day, put it on the internet, instant 15 seconds of "fame"...!

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

best thing to do also is have everyone post one general blog on our own // tagging their names owner names associated with it, so people are aware and their names are always associated with stealing someones work
that way SEo always picks their name up

they can always start a new businessname, unless of course they change their real names

Re: Stealing Someone's Work

Don't know about that, as much as I despise people stealing it's not our task to be judge and jury, maybe it was a mistake, maybe they where just testing. On FB there was one reaction about the embedded video having the logo of the owner at the end, so why go through the trouble of stealing if everyone can see who's video it is? A real thief would have ripped the video and removed the logo at the end, only then you"d know their true intentions.

I see a lot of video's on Vimeo with music of which I"m sure they have not been licensed properly, I also see quite a few Beglian weddingvideographers using Vimeo instead of their own website to promote their video with a song from well known music bands, so technically they are all thieves as well but no-one makes a fuzz about it. Maybe we should start blogging about that and let them prove they are innocent in order to remove the blogpost again.
