Motion.tv Threatens Blogger for "Infringement"
"Be careful of what you say about motion.tv in your blog"
That's the "lead" of the love note I just received about Motion.tv.
Weeks ago Shawn McCoy, a Content Manager from Motion TV, contacted me about uploading my videos on his site. I gave him and Motion.tv a plug on Revverberation with this March 13 post highlighting MotionTV. Shawn posted a response.
I previously had a logo of Motion TV on this post, but just removed it. Below is the message from a friendly CEO of Apollo Interactive in LA (not sure how they're tied to Motion.tv). Needless to say, you won't be hearing anything else on Revverberation about Motion.tv. I'm pulling the link off CubeBreak.com too.
Initially I was intruiged by Motion.tv as a worthy competitor of Revver, and brought it to attention to Revverberation readers despite this blog being about Revver. I'm not sure why they took offense to the post. It gave them free access to a core group of content creators. That said, you won't ever find any Nalts videos on MotionTV even if it becomes the next eBay.
Here's the note I received on March 14 (I just found it in my SPAM folder). I'm glad to know Yahoo mail filters cranky messages as spam!
please remove the motion.tv logo from your blog immediately.
(you are in violation of Motion.TV's intellectual property rights)
i also strongly suggest that you be careful of what you say about
motion.tv in your blog as your remarks may constitute unfair business
