Vimeo



I know for an absolute fact that this action on your part has nothing whatever to do with any genuine or perceived breach of your guidelines.

I edit footage on my iPad - the only way I can easily import the footage I incorporate into my original works in a standardised format is via the Vimeo app.

For this reason, since my previous account was suspended, without notice and without refunding the cost of my Plus+ Subscription, I have maintained two paid Vimeo+ Plus accounts - one for solely original work and the other for found footage and potentially infringing material, both accounts established in the same week, for the purposes of protecting my original content and personal brand, hyperlinks and stats, with Chinese Walls between the two.

The account carrying original work, carried almost 300 original works, and has been "deleted" (this term is dishonest), for a breech of Vimeo Guidelines which did not occur - never have there been any requests to remove specific content for codified an enumerated perceived infringements on individual videos, and only one GENERAL warning less than 48 hours ago.

The account carrying ONLY infringing material currently carries around 1300 clips, none of them original works, and has never been subject to a single warning over the GENERAL content, and only two or three automatic deletion a individual clips.

This has nothing to do with breaching Vimeo Guidelines, and that's demonstrably not true.

If you object to the content of my work, please explain to me why.

I don't want my money back. I wish to continue being a customer and using this service and I am going to do so, with or without your cooperation;

I merely insist on my rights.





Copywrong

Etymology

Coined as an antonym for copyright, on the basis of right and wrong.

Noun

copywrong (countable and uncountableplural copywrongs)
  1. (nonce word) The unethical use of, or disregard for, copyright law.
    • 1847, Freeman Hunt, Hunt's merchants' magazine (page 539)
      We do it with less compunctious visitings of conscience, on the score of copyright or copywrong, as we are informed by the New York bookseller, that the demand, since we commenced the publication of our extracts, has been greater than the supply...
    • 1998Network World (volume 15, number 12, 23 March 1998)
      But immediately we run headlong into the issue of copywrong. For instance, take a sample of some artist and mix it with other samples and sounds to create a new work and you will get a composition that will attract entertainment lawyers like a garbage bin gathers flies.
    • 2005, Gerard M Stegmaier, The Digital Millennium Copyright Act: 2005 supplement
      For me personally, the copyrights and "copywrongs," as I have called them, simply boil down to either one or two things, and that is it's either an act of distribution or it is an act of consumption.

Melissa,

Again: I advise you to read this,  because you (and your boss) are in it (and will continue to be until I receive the level of customer service I am paying for (twice)).

I did look over your Guidelines, I am intimately familiar with them. I am not in breach of them. 

Everything published on my account is my own work, and carries the following disclaimer and correct legal declarations.

I am in full compliance with your Guidelines, I know them inside and out.

If you disagree, please explain why, because I know full well you are overworked and underpaid have done absolutely nothing to examine the substance of my assertion of creative rights on their merits.

In the absence of a genuine or honest explanation of any specific breech of your guidelines that you are able to factually substitute, I am forced to conclude that actual reason for abridging my rights is based on something other than any claimed breach of your guidelines and indeed is in fact motivated for other more nefarious motives.

It could be racism. It could be political censorship.  It could simply be personal animus and harassment.

I have no information to lead me to conclude that it's not any of those things, and you have declined to provide any when requested to do so.

I do know that your claimed reason (uploading unoriginal content I did not create) is false.

What you say is UNTRUE.

Please refer my complaint to your supervisor.

Paul

Hi there,

Thanks for your response.

Please look over our Guidelines: https://vimeo.com/help/guidelines

You may not upload content to Vimeo that you did not create yourself. Please note that having permission is not enough, and that public domain videos are not allowed either.

If you or your organization were not involved in the creation of these videos, they will need to be removed.

Another option would be to get a PRO account, which allows users to upload content they did not create themselves but have permission to upload. You can learn more about PRO at https://vimeo.com/pro and at https://vimeo.com/help/pro_guidelines.

Sincerely,
Milisa B

Milisa,

That's very kind of you, I appreciate your help.

I apologise for being so blunt, but this is something I am extremely passionate about, and I try extremely hard to abide by the rules and obey the letter of the law, and I am glad to pay for the quality of service your site provides as a loyal and faithful customer.

I'm aware that a lot of this process is probably automated by various red flags being raised, and I'm sure that the volume of these complaints probably far exceeds the reasonable expectation of how ever many staff members you have there to properly examine every case in very much detail;

So thank you for listening, and putting me in touch with the right people to hopefully get this resolved.

I'll leave you some good feedback.
