Difference is you can simply use the license and clear the video then It’s yours to use freely. Please don’t make it sound like it’s permanent and the ads are always there. That is untrue. That is what would happen to someone without a license who can’t properly can’t clear it.

Koster has made it clear that it’s not so much as he can’t clear the video by showing the license. The fact is he stated he doesn’t want to! I don’t have a lot of sympathy for that position. Particularly when clearing a video takes a matter of seconds. Kinda hard to feel sorry for someone who chooses not to do something so simple.

this is the kind of rudeness i’ve been pointing out, btw.
To be honest, your comment was pretty condescending but I’ve surely made my share of those so I understand how it can just happen.

i just find the “it’s not about the money” sanctimonious rhetoric amusing.
It’s about recouping revenue lost as a result of theft. I don’t think anyone has been less than genuine about that fact.

but i guarantee 90% of the people here claiming they are only in it for protection won’t switch over unless they are monetizing as well.

Would you rather let an illegal video stay up and make money, or have it taken down?

I would choose to leave it because so many videos with illegitimate use will earn 100 times more than a license is worth. Just the way it is I’m afraid. :)

Exactly!

so you’re outta gas and resorting to insults? figured that would happen! :D

I hardly think saying that you’re playing ostrich is considered an insult. If you took it that way I apologize. Have a good night.

doesn’t matter why I think the license is issued…you should be more concerned about whether your buyers understand why! :)

lol….I kinda figured you’d come up with a reason to avoid the very simple question.


we have been “told” lots of things in this conversation. I have no way of knowing whether what you say is correct or not (and neither do you!)
Actually I do know. I take the time to LOOK at the profiles of many so I know exactly what I’m talking about. You could do the same but you choose to play ostrich instead.

All of that is great but you didn’t answer the question.

Why do you think a license is issued at the point of sale?


On the other hand, if you do not alert your buyers about this (or you give them a vaguely worded explanation) don’t be surprised when you lose them

I think you’ve been told quite a few times now that most here who use AdRev have a statement right on their profile stating that and detailing where to go and how to clear a 3rd Party Content Match notice. (notice the word infringement is not included) Yet for some reason you choose to call that statement vague. Why? What would you suggest? Screenshots posted on our profiles for those who can’t figure out how to follow a link?

ya might wanna take a deep breath and relax a bit before you wear out that capslock key! :D

lol…touche!


because selling something without warning the buyer that they will almost certainly be required to prove ownership at some point in the future or suffer consequences is, IMHO, both unprofessional and unethical!

With all due respect Sir, I just don’t understand why it’s so hard for you to grasp. Please answer this question in as few words as possible so as not to confuse the public:

Why do you think a license is issued at the point of sale?

authors don’t really know what they’re selling and buyers don’t really understand what they’re buying.

This is truly the center of the entire issue.

when I buy something I give you money. you give me what I bought. end of transaction!

Wrong! Been on a train in the last 100 years? Ever bought a piece of software? Ever been asked for your receipt on your way out of an electronics store?


the notices should only go to the pirates and not to your customers!

Would you like to share your brilliant plan as to how you will differentiate between the two? Isn’t that the point of asking the person to “show their receipt”????


they will likely be notified of possible infringement

Your continued misuse of the word “infringement” is disingenuous if not downright dishonest! The notice says nothing about copyright infringement so you should stop MAKING THINGS UP. Why? Because some people who don’t know you’re making it up might read your rhetoric and fall for it.

Most of us who use AdRev have a notice stating that on our profiles. You’re just plain wrong.

I’m absolutely not trying to convince you to use AdRev. In fact I sincerely hope you never do. However, perhaps the different sides of the argument can agree to disagree and leave it at that. But to call people unprofessional and to infuse self constructed mistruths into the discussion: FAIL
