EeFoof and MadV

Courtesy of MarquisdeJolie: Mad V left Revver but remains live on Eefoof with his magic music videos and as a moderator. In this post, Mad V clarifies what content is appropriate for Eefoof. Mad V amazed Revver visitors with his magic tricks scored by copyrighted music, but then vanished to do something on television. Apparently he's saying he didn't get paid by Revver (couldn't find that in the forum , but I did find this interesting forum discussion).

Eefoof is getting some nice press, by the way, including this CNBC story and a lot of attention from www.Digg.com. But Mashable challenges its business model and calls the site ugly.

The Wall Street Journal article about Revver submitter idonothingallday is being featured on Eefoof. It's weird that Eefoof is being billed as a YouTube competitor like Revver doesn't exist.

What I really don't get is the "does not claim ownership" option at eefoof.

Huh? So, uh, you can upload anybody else's content as long as you don't claim ownership (and don't share the revenue eefoof makes off 'unowned' video)???

WTF?

"Don't claim ownership" means... "I stole it from YouTube."

Duh.

I'm launching a new site:

www.CopyrightInfringementClips.com

Might as well go ALL the way and use YouTube's popularity by launching www.stoleitfromYouTube.com

Wait. That's doable. YouTube can't say you stole stolen property from them, can they!?

You could do it as a public service: "Reclaim your hacked video at www.stoleitfromYouTube.com. For only .99 per video, editors at www.stoleitfromYouTube.com will notify YouTube of your claim to ownership."

You could make a bundle.
