I'm saying it again: VIDEO FORUM!!!

Admins,

I think the board would really, really benefit from having a Videos forum where everyone can post their videos and any threads pertaining to videos (including requests and whatnot). Not only would this organize things a great deal, but it would eliminate alot of that stuff which at times can clutter up GM. I think it would be a quite popular and highly visited section, and may even encourage people to share more videos.

Re: I'm saying it again: VIDEO FORUM!!!

I agree

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Re: I'm saying it again: VIDEO FORUM!!!

and i'm saying it again: i'm not sure steve wants to draw more attention than it is to all those illegal videos people post on the board, but it's entirely up to him... so i cannot give you an answer. i'll contact steve to see what his opinion on this is...

Re: I'm saying it again: VIDEO FORUM!!!

Hmmm, I didnt think of that, but it sounds like it could be a potential problem. If it was though, wouldnt the TV stations placing these copyrights go after the upload sites like youtube and megaupload who are hosting these videos, as opposed to a message board that ppl are just posting them on?

Re: I'm saying it again: VIDEO FORUM!!!

Sites like YouTube don't usually have entire matches (or tv shows/movies for that matter), usually just clips so it might not be as much of a concern for them.

But yes, they probably would go after the hosting site, whether it be mega upload or a site where torrent files could be posted, but i think the issue is that the admins do not want to be seen as condoning any illegal activity

Re: I'm saying it again: VIDEO FORUM!!!

Fair enough. Hopefully they take the "risk" though. I mean hey, there's videos all over the site anyway, why not just organize them better

And also, youtube has a plentiful amount of full matches on it, split into a million different parts.

I wasnt implying that they are necessarily, but Im just saying if a huge site like YouTube gets away with it then what are these tv companies who copyright this material gonna care if theyre just on some tennis message board?

I dunno, it's all speculation for me, I dont know for sure how any of this stuff works and how diligent these copyrights are.

Well youtube is kinda getting very close to getting their ass's sued off currently As soon as google bought them and there was actual money to go after, all the big companies started demanding that there content be pulled off youtube or they would be sued.
