You can ask the fine gentleman at LL if you can upload their material here, I'm sure they will oblige. ;) The problem there is I don't have permissions say from Harman, Keystoker etc to use their images and it gets complicated. Many of these companies have specific ways you are allowed to use their stock images.

But we can post you tube videos ????? Are they not subject to the same thing ???


The YouTube videos are embedded, the files reside on YouTube's server so it's not my problem. Youtube and the videos on YouTube are subject to the same thing I am. The reason so much copyrighted material is found on YouTube is because when the content owner files a DMCA complaint YouTube will give the content owner a share in the ad revenue to leave it up. Most choose the ad revenue and that is why you see so much copyrighted material on Youtube uploaded by regular users.


Not trying to be difficult here. Just trying to get my head around this.


That's fine Rick and I'd rather you ask so I can try an explain.

in comparison to almost every other forum Ive been on Rich... you are not lax. Its almost a mandate for a company or person to first formally inform you they believe your in violation of their copy rights via a special form (you would not even require that... you would remove anything upon a simple request on a paper napkin if you thought it was indeed in violation, even if it was not the owner!)
So don't loose to much sleep over it... your doing as good and as proper with proper intent as anyone out their!

That's not the case Doug. What you are referring to is DMCA notice which allows content owners to easily get their copyrighted material removed from sites. The usual procedure is they will contact me or my host with the complaint. At that point I'll have to remove the content if it's copyrighted becsue I'll be liable if I don't. I'll contact the poster to let them know the notice was served and the poster has two choices at that point. They can either accept it or file counter notice.

Once the counter notice is filed the content can be restored and either party will have to pursue it in the courts. You can sue for false DMCA claims.

Anyone can pursue anyone is court for anything im sure... but without having given you notice (and choice to simply take it down, they wont get to far unless you had malicious intent or at the very least attempt to make large profits from the specified infringing material... which clearly you don't because you brow beat us every day to keep us and our forum safe.

Beat away Richard as for me when it comes to copyright stuff I am clueless. Even though Pastor's are supposed to know everything, this one for sure doesn't. Keep up the good work and keep us safe.
