One of my friends just told me that my video, featuring our prime minister, was uploaded on youtube and displayed on the web site of radioplus…
I immediately checked it, and it was true!!!
Someone from Radioplus took the exact copy of my original video, shot with my mobile and with my voice, and dared to upload that onto their account, more exactly on the account of venenmru.
Well, that guy must be simply foolish or an idiot because he has clearly violated the copyright notices on youtube!
Additionally on the site, it clearly states that
Be sure that all components of your video are your original creation—even the audio portion. For example, if you use an audio track of a sound recording owned by a record label without that record label’s permission, your video may be infringing the copyrights of others, and may be subject to removal.
I emphasize on this point, because this video clip includes my voice and that of my family members!
If the copyright owner disagrees with your interpretation of fair use, the copyright owner may chose to resolve the dispute in court. If the court agrees with the copyright owner, then you are infringing the copyrights of the owner and you may be liable for monetary damages.
It doesn’t matter that you are not selling the video for money—it is still copyrighted.
It doesn’t matter whether or not the video contains a copyright notice—it is still copyrighted.
I kindly ask the person in question to delete that video, and i have already notified youtube about this infringement of one of their copyright notices…
I wouldnt have mind if that person asked me the permission to upload this video, and link to the original video, but he has just COPIED it!
