Creative Commons would not make it any harder for eBaum's to steal things, since YTMNDs are copyrighted anyway. Also, it's copyright, not copywrite.

Awesome we can finally make it so they cant steal

"They are creating a world where you have to copyright your sh*t or else they can take it free of charge"... eh... It's always been like that. So actually they're not doing anything illegal if it's not copyrighted. Also, you can't just put a little sign for it to actually be copyrighted. It doesn't work that way. Sorry.

The content in YTMNDs are not copyrighted, just the logo and trademark. Creative commons makes it so if ebaums wishes to use your work he must give you credit.
July 27th, 2006

It's too bad most of this is hypocritical as most ytmnd users think that writing "google + internetz" as citations is actually giving credit. Google is a search engine you dumbasses.

when you create a work it's automatically protected by full copyright...how's CC gonna apply to all the copywritten stuff that's used in full or part of 99.99% of YTMNDs?
July 27th, 2006

CC website says otherwise: http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses/comics1

Inaccurate. All work is copyrighted when you create it. Stop upvoting this NARVs

creative commons isnt going to even slow down ebaum
July 27th, 2006

As soon as your work is uploaded to the internet, it's copyrighted automatically whether you have a notice or not. So eBaum IS breaking the law with the telemarketer file.
July 27th, 2006
(0)
YOU ALL SHOULD DO THIS
July 27th, 2006
(0)
Children, please. 1) As has been said, if you make it, it's copyrighted. 2) While YTMNDers are generally using other people's clips or images with minor edits, considering the presentation, much of it falls into fair use. Not all of it, however. Look it up.

So...This is an Ad?
(0)
What other people have already commented but I'll reiterate cuz hey, whatever: ALL works are automatically copyrighted upon creation. Ebaums gets away with it because the courts don't care.

In reply to some of the comments/questions: 1. I gave credit for the song to The Who 2. This YTMND does not have a CC license applied to it as CC belongs to CC and the song belongs to The Who 3. I am not affiliated with CC so this is not an advertisement
July 27th, 2006

Everything posted on the internet is copyrighted, this won't help at all. I won't downvote you but that's a sh*tty idea.
July 27th, 2006
(0)
so basically if you create the image from scratch AND the audio from scratch this can apply...I'm not voting because this doesn't apply to almost everyone, but for the truly original, high rated sites this might help...
July 27th, 2006

This is an ad...he needs to PROVE it's enforceable...
July 27th, 2006

you see that's the problem at eBaums...they have the entry form where anybody can claim they made the media even if they didn't...a registry with the CC would clear everything up quickly

The usual 4, but the grammar/spelling/syntax is horrible. I know this is the internet, but if you want to look professional, which I assume you do, please clean it up a bit.

If your YTMND consists largely of a paragraph you want us to read, at least ensure that the grammar remains at a level beyond that of a second-grader

In the united states, all work is copyrighted the instant you create it. That hasn't stopped ebaum. Placing your copyrighted work under a creative commens license imho may only encourage him.

Hey guys. I actually have a creative commons on my artwork and writing, and so far it's working for me. If I show a host my license, then the person who did not credit me (the atribution) will have a much greater chance of their account being removed. Please note that creative commons is NOT a copyright. It is a license. It's basically a "This is what you can do with my crap. Disobey and I am allowed to get pissy and/or sue." If you have any other questions, just ask me.

This YTMND is being downvoted because it is promoting an inaccurate view of how copyright works. http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/text/copyright Go there for information as to how it REALLY works!

Don't get me wrong though, I'm all for Creative Commons licenses. Copyleft, FTW! But lets not get the two confused.

I agree, but I am saying *I* know the difference. Which is why I am saying "ask me questions". I am not a lawyer, but I have read a lot into copyright and licenses to make sure my own work isn't f*cked with and stolen.

Actually, just to note, anything you create is by international convention considered to have a common law copyright. The general difficulty in such a thing is proving the date in which the item was created, which is usually most easily done by sending yourself a sealed envolope so you have the postmark as proof in case you bring it to court. Creative Commons merely seeks to more accurately spell out the terms in a more concrete fashion. More intimidating to a would be theif.

CC is not copyright, so no I am not confused how copyright works. CC means they CAN use it but they have to credit to you for creating it. Things are not automatically copyrighted in legal terms as soon as you make it. Copyright is where you register that the item actually belongs to you therefore people need your permission to reuse it or else they are punishable by law. Hope that clears up the confusion of what CC is and what copyright is for you CitrusFreak1, idownvotethieves, and others.

Uh. I suggest the site creator familiarize himself with the Berne Convention. Creative works are copyright the creator the instant they're brought into being. Creative Commons is a _particular license_. You may as well replace "Creative Commons" with "GNU Free Document License" -- it'd be every bit as nonsensical. Reserving vote until later.

Copyright is acquired automatically. Read up on the Berne Convention. Getting a creative commons license will not make this any more or less enforcable, so this YTMND is basically worthless. 1

This won't make a difference. Ebaumsworld lies about whether or not someone gave them permission to use something, or failing that they just say "oh, some anonymous person gave it to us without crediting anyone." Unless you have the money, patience, and inclination to sue ebaumsworld over it, it doesn't matter how much copyright protection you put on your stuff, he'll steal it if he wants to.

"They are creating a world where you have to copyright your sh*t or else they can take it free of charge" Bullsh*t. A peice of work is copyrighted the moment of its insception. You don't fill out f*ggy forms or brand the peice with a meticulously designed logo for it to be copyright.
